    you could say that about most banks, doesn't make them pointless

    (edited to add: and, of course, they had a great and simple switching offer recently, now ended, which would outweigh income from interest, even with good rates, for most people)

    I joined them in February and left them in March purely for the switch offer. All their accounts had nothing to attract me.

    But certainly not pointless if you got the switch offer!

    Unless they try to avoid switch bonus pay outs due to their ambiguous T&C (most likely on purpose). :smile:

    They serve a purpose? Maybe before they were brought out by American funds. Now they are owned by cash hungry people without a soul? Am I wrong?
