    Use the debit card 20 times +
    Can you just buy 20 Amazon tops ups gift vouchers?
    Yes, though the minimum amount for an Amazon voucher is now £1. It used to be 10p, which was very handy when they previously did this offer. 

    Looks like anyone who did the previous 2 switch offers are excluded.

    Thanks, I never use my debit card (except for getting cash out at ATM).

    EDIT I'm reading it that I don't have to have active direct debits on my old account, just had to set 2 up by the 15th March on new TSB account.

    Could you edit the title of this thread to add the month/year? Helps to differentiate it from the previous offers.

    If you need to set up direct debits, you can set up £1 a month direct debits with UNICEF and the Childhood Trust. Remember to set them up on your old account before you switch.

    I do have 2 DD set up on current bank, but only just set them up so not active as yet
    . But in this offer I don't that I have to have any active DD in my old account,  just I need to set them up at the TSB by 15th March. Am I reading that wrong?

    You are reading that wrong. You need to have 2 direct debits set up on your old account and they need to be included in your current account switch. If you set them up on your TSB account after the switch, you won't get the money.

    If you've only just set up the direct debits on your old accounts, wait a week before you set up the switch.

    That's what I did for the last switch offer.

    Unlike this offer, the October 2022 offer had a 31st October closing date for applications. It was available throughout the month of October. Looks like they may just close this one once they get a certain number of applications?
