Cash incentive account switches, how many?

Hi guys,
               I switched today to first direct for 175 cash back.

my question is, can you switch to another account soon after for another cash incentive?

    As long as the terms and conditions don't preclude it you can move straight away to another account..I've never seen any that do preclude it and I put in a switch request away from Halifax on the same morning I got the reward.

    Just remember that you will be unlikely ever to get another switch payment from First Direct . I'd be inclined to keep it if the regular saver is paying a decent interest rate. it might also preclude you from an HSBC incentive.
    In switch deals it is wise to read & reread the very small print!!

    Other than that you can switch when you like but will probably need the debit card for the long number to fill in the switch form.

    Being polite and pleasant doesn't cost anything!
