    Co-Op bank - 200 if you switch to them 14th Oct 11 at 7:41 PM
    On Monday 17/10, co-op start a limited offer - switch your banking to them using their switching service, pay in minimum of 800 per month then after the 3rd month they will credit your account with 200!
    You must switch at least 2 direct debits, and this offer doesnt include the cashminder account.

    Still not got my 200!
    I wrote to them and today got a reply from customer services:

    "We have checked our records and unfortunately you are not eligible for the offer as you did not meet the criteria"

    "The offer with regards to switching was from 17/10/2011 until 31/10/2011 and your request was received on 19/01/2012"


    Thing is I have documents from them when I opened the account stating my account was part of the 200 offer.

    Am I missing something here or have I been had?

    I think they are strict on the switching date and the switching process, which should be done exclusively through them and not manually.
    Though your account opening letter said about the 200 offer, it would be asterisked with "terms and conditions apply", which were the switch date,using their switch service and 800 per month for 3 months, after the switch.
    Many in this forum, including me, mistook the last criterion as "calendar month".What Co-Op meant by "a month" was 30 days from date of switch.It was bit vague, but they must have relented on it , otherwise they wouldn't have paid my bonus.

    For accounts such as this that requires one to bank in a certain amount of money per month, does that means you will need to have a salary enough to do so or would they be happy for you to apply if your money is not coming solely from salary only?

    On previous offers they haven't demanded that the funds come from salary, it can come from any external source, they just like you to have the salary coming in so that they think you'll use them as your main account, but it's not been necessary, before anyway.

    Been watching this thread for long and it has gone quite for a while. Seems all got the cashback(including me). So Co-op swindler has finally buckled to the populace.
    Hurrah...
    Thanks to all from me for all the advise and support...
