    Raisin.co.uk are a disgrace

    Raisin.co.uk are a disgrace 5th Jul 18 at 10:10 PM
    Anyone else waiting for the so-called 50 bonus which was promised for the Raisin UK offering 2% AER on 12 month fixed

    I've emailed them three times now and not a single reply. I've had that automated reply which says they will respond in 48 hours, but nothing.


    Did moneysavingexpert vet them before recommending? Raisin customer support is non existent and the bonus feels like a scam.


    Anyone else in the same boat? Raisin deserve to be named and shamed.

    50.00 arrived into my account this afternoon.

    Deposited 1000.00, 11-06-18, showing as "pending"
    14-06-18 showing as "deposited"
    Sent Launch Bonus email request 18-06-18.

    50.00 deposited into my linked account 11-07-18, well within the 60 days promised, actually 27 days from "deposit", 23 days from Launch Bonus email request.

    Oh don't be too harsh - the OP will be back in a trice offering a grovelling apology.
    Well, maybe not.

    So many bloated egos with so little IQ in this thread, getting ahead of themselves...
    I will give a response in time whether they do or don't... But just because a "handful" of people may get the bonus as a token gesture to take the heat from this thread, does not mean that Raisin.co.uk are in the clear.
    Hang fire, I've had no email about payment yet.
    You'd think Raisin would be aware of this thread by now and someone there would wise up and look into the 48 hour response email wording you get from them.... Again like I said, they are amateur hour, do any of you lot work for them I wonder?
    Further response to follow, 60 days fast approaching

    Er, you write as if you've contributed to the thread before. And that comments have been directed at you.

    But this is the first time 'sharpharp' has contributed to this thread.

    The person the comments have been addressed to - and the specific person who said, as you're claiming you did, that they are 'amateur hour' - was 'rkelly'.

    If you're rkelly why are you writing as sharpharp? Or vice versa. I'm sure forum rules say you can only have one login, otherwise all sorts of mischievous nonsense could take place. Have you logged in as your alter ego by accident this morning?

    And as for the comment 'do any of you work for them' - I can say, categorically, that I don't. And I strongly suspect no-one else does either. You're clutching at straws to try to justify your original, thoroughly debunked, case.

    (btw I'm reporting your comment above as evidence of a double login)

    Edited to add: I see sharpharp's post has now been removed - though it is unclear whether this was done by the forum team or by sharpharp (or perhaps rkelly). The episode is, perhaps, an interesting take on the concepts of disgrace, amateur hour, ego and IQ.

    Personally, I had the intelligence to realise that
    - I had complied with the claim conditions for the offer.
    - The response was obviously a generic automated email reply, from it's wording.
    - I should not expect a reply within 24 hours because there was nothing new they could tell me, and the timescales and process had already been explained in the conditions of the offer.
    - The auto-generated reply did serve a useful purpose as an auditable proof of receipt of my claim.

    At that point I set a 60 day reminder on my email and decided to concentrate on other things in life that were more worthwhile.

    ... Yesterday, 10th July, I got an email saying that Raisin are processing the applications from May and June and that I should get my 50 bonus soon. ...

    My 50 arrived sometime today, exactly 1 calendar month after I opened my raisin account. Well pleased

    Thanks again also to whoever first gave us the heads up about this on this forum.

    The additional 50 probably belongs to rkelly or do I mean sharpsharp.

    More likely rkelly, as sharpsharp has now removed his/her post, though fortunately it can still be seen in quotes
