Hi when I opened a premier current account in septemer with A & L one of the incentives was that they said they would match my existing overdraft.

I have an overdraft with my other bank for £2,700 but A&L only gave me an OD of £350

Is it too late for me to request my overdraft be matched, and if not, how do I go about requesting this?

thanks in advance

Mr Kennedy...

    They matched mine after I'd been with them for around 10 months. However, the overdraft matching offer (to consider only) forms part of switching DD's and/or SO's to them. Did you 'switch' in September?

    As to how you go about it, I just rang and asked to speak with their switching team.
  • Yes I switched over in September.

    I'll give them a ring and see what they can do for me.

    Thanks yorkieboy.
  • I've just joined and got an overdraft of £250, the welcome letter says that if you want your old overdraft amount matched, to send off a statement less than a month old showing your current overdraft limit and they will consider it. Got a letter yesterday saying they're happy to match it :) You could always just give them a ring and ask, they'll probably say send in a statement.
