so far i have opened a 1st account using their app, the account is live and i made a test deposit of a tenner, i went on the chat in their app and started a switch process, an old tsb account to them i had to choose a date 10 days ahead of yesterday so opted for the 14th feb the last thing if i have it all right is i need to deposit a grand into the account, shall i do this before the switch happens after the switch or does it not matter?
The last thing i will do is set up the 7% savings account which needs to be fed from a s/o from my 1st direct account.
Do i have it all correct
I think you will be very lucky to get the switch welcome handshake - I might be wrong!- but 1st Direct have a very very long memory!
