    TSB Current Account Switch Blagged Deal

    TSB Current Account Switch Blagged Deal 30th Nov 16 at 3:20 PM
    Hi guys, we're featuring a new exclusive offer on the site that whilst perhaps not being suitable for everyone, we feel might be a good deal for some of you;

    Free 100 for switching, plus 5% interest (3% from Jan) & up to 5/mth cashback

    Until 11 Dec 2016, via our special link, TSB* gives accepted switchers to its Classic Plus account a free 100 (go direct you get nowt). You'll also get 5% cashback on the first 100 of contactless debit card spending a month (so a free fiver each month for most) until Sep 2017, and interest of 5% on balances up to 2,000 - though this drops to 3% from January.

    To get the switching bonus, you need to apply for the account by 11 Dec 2016, and fully switch to it using TSB's switching service by 30 December. You'll also need to switch at least two direct debits (which must still be active for at least 28 days after the switch completes), and pay in at least 500 in the first 28 days from switching.

    You can find the rest of the need to know information via the above link.

    If you have any issues with your switch, call TSB's Switcher Team on 0345 835 7838.

    If you're still struggling, you can post on this thread, below, or reach us via direct email on:

    I applied for the TSB account for the bonus etc today, through the MSE link. They've sent me an email saying I need to go into a branch with two forms of ID. Is this normal? Will I still get to switch and receive the bonus?

    Oh and they didn't ask for my old bank details from the one I want switching when I filled it the online form.
    So how do they know where they are switching my account from? I'm confused. It didn't seem this complicated when I switched to the co-op!

    want to switch from a bank where have 2 current accounts ...
    Still a good deal even if you don't hit the 20 debit card transactions every month.

    5 instead of 10 (assuming you have 2 different DD payments every month etc) and 3% on up to 1500, with no monthly fee.

    I agree about this- it is still a good deal. I am wondering whether I can close ONE of my Nationwide current accounts, as I have a FlexAccount and a FlexPlus account, and keep the latter, and still qualify for the benefits of this switch to TSB? I feel it should be OK, but not quite sure.

    Thanks for the referral link, moneysavingexpert, got my 130 last week.

    TSB was the easiest switch I have ever made, no long phone calls!

    I am just wondering how I could meet the minimum requirement of 20 debit card transactions per month.

    I seldom use my card - perhaps three times a month. Anyone have any ideas?
