    Offer 250 to switch to Clydesdale, Yorkshire or B

    Offer 250 to switch to Clydesdale, Yorkshire or B 4th Oct 17 at 1:24 PM
    Update: This is now live nationwide, switching to Clydesdale, Yorkshire Bank or 'B'

    Hello,

    First post here though I do lurk elsewhere in the forums and thought I'd post this up having bypassed this yesterday. Yorkshire Bank have recently opened a new colourful branch on New Street, Birmingham and as a result are offering a generous 250 to switch.

    As the title suggests, the offer is subject to switchers who set up their account in the Birmingham branch only. Apologies if already submitted or is in the wrong forum area.

    Full T&Cs here: XXX.youandb.co.uk/resources/ca5d4166-3541-4222-a983-1a00b6623b91/B+Birmingham+T%26Cs+FINAL.pdf

    Note: T&Cs suggest that the offer may be withdrawn at any time so those who wish to take up the offer might want to move fast.

    Mine was via B. I think I selected Clydesdale during the sign up process.

    Switch dates were the 8th November for my mum and dad. My mum with Clydesdale and has received her 250 today, my dad with Yorkshire but he hasn't received his 250 yet. The people that haven't received their incentives yet are you with Clydesdale or Yorkshire?

    Having shown admirable restraint I've not bothered posting on here nor checking my account on a daily basis, as that indicates a degree of anxiety from which I have not been suffering.

    But my 250 arrived yesterday. All that matters!

    8th November switch, still waiting for incentive.

    I have paid in and paid out what was required (I think) so its just a waiting game now

    Dad got his email today so just looks like Yorkshire is a bit slower in paying their incentive.

    money is in my account too, have had this account for a number of years but wasn't really used much, so switched another account into it for the bonus. I have now just applied for (and been accepted for) the natwest account for the newly launched switch reward, so another one to go for me

    Same happened to me. All 4 switched DDs didn't work, so I cancelled and set up the same 4 again manually. Yorkshire even managed to cancel 1 of those, so I was starting to get concerned. Everything OK though and got my money yesterday, so as long as you have 2 DDs that have paid out at least once and are still active now, you should be OK on that score.

    Confirmation email received within the last 10 minutes. Checked the account and the money's in. Yay!

    Thanks very much Clydesdale Bank.
