    Just spotted a 2.95 card shipping fee for the Debit Card.
    Has anyone been charged this when they got their Debit Card?

    Can anyone let me know how long it took from opening the account to getting the necessary emailed codes to let you get access to the client portal? I registered yesterday at around 11.30pm, received notification of account details etc, but not had any access codes yet. I am reluctant to transfer in the 1000 until I can see the account online (even though obviously I have the account details to set up the transfer).

No emails or texts or codes Friday, or over the weekend. Nothing Monday and nothing today, Tuesday, so still no access to the account which they said was open on Friday. Queried it today and got a simple message back basically saying just to wait, no reason given for the delay or even acknowledging a delay.

    I wouldn't mind - but judging by your experience they can do this quite quickly.

    Deal extended to 29 May
    Referral offer appears to have been extended to 29 May

    "Invite your friends to open a Fineco account using your Friend Code. Just log into your customer area to find your code. And remember, this offer is only valid until 29/05/2018"

    If anyone wants a referral then if you use mine and send me a PM to let me know when your account is open and 1000 paid in, then I will give you 25 of my cashback when I receive it:

    Use my Friend Code UK1672174 to open a Fineco account now and we can both choose between a 70 reward or 100 commission-free trades. Fineco's smart services include banking, trading and investing, all from one single multicurrency account. https://bit.ly/2qoVPlp

    Getting Money out ...Do you need a card or request a security code is posted ? I'm reluctant to transfer the 1K until I know I can get it back without hassle.
    Do you get a personal referral code only once you have put 1K in

    Everything otherwise is set up and activated, I thought I had requested a debit card but it says not in my account details..its a bit of a fiddly bank this one.

    I have been able to transfer money in and out without any real issues. The payments are not as quick as Faster Payments but don't take forever either.

    If you requested a debit card it initially looks like you don't have a card (and keeps trying to get you to choose one) but after a day or two on the page you see first after you've logged in you should see in Latest Activity with Pin section (below the the big Banner pic) it saying about the card. If you then look on the Banking Tab towards the bottom the card section should show your card and it's status (eg not activated and Shipping).

    Cheers Shedman. I can see the card is on its way.


    I tried to transfer in a couple of quid yesterday as a test run..my account has a load of 0's prior to the main digits which I removed except 1 to make it 8 digits..its still not showing in the account, I'm wandering if I should have removed all the 0's or its just slow because of the "bank holiday"

    Yeah removing the 0s to make 8 digits is correct!

    Transferring from Barclays into Fineco took one working day for me. Probably slow due to the bank holiday

    At the moment Fineco Bank are running a promotion that when you deposit 1000 you get a 70 bonus using a refer a friend link. You need to sign up by 29/05/18 and deposit by 29/06/18. The account is also useful as you can choose a euro debit card (and you can exchange between to euro) for when you are travelling. I've received the bonus and have transferred the money straight out again no problem.

    Bank website - https://finecobank.com/uk/

    Link to begin application is https://finecobank.com/uk/apriconto/scelta-online-cp?cp=UK7486863

    Use this link to apply for an account before 29/05/2018 and we will both get 70 when you open an account and make an initial deposit of 1000. You can withdraw the deposit immediately afterwards if you want.

    Recommendation

    They used to pay the bonus the day after you deposit however from feedback and asking Fineco it appears that everyone gets the bonus on a set date. Most people are hearing 22/05/18. You don't need to keep the deposit in the account to get the bonus so my recommendation is apply ASAP. Deposit when you have the money and withdraw straight away after (if you deposit in the AM it shows in the PM and takes one working day to come back again.)

    You can't withdraw the money until you activate the online payment section of your account which you can't do until you get your card. It will act like you haven't got a card until you receive the card so don't worry about it saying about requesting a security code you just need the middle digits of your card when it arrives

    When transferring to Fineco simply remove enough 0s at the start to make the account 8 digits long.

    Make sure to use the Promo code or you don't get the free 70 -

    Not sure if those of those of us that signed up before they extended the offer from 8 May to 29 May will now have to wait till then rather the original date.

    With regards to the funds transfer - it has been commented in the Assetzcapital forum on P2PIndendentforum that there have been problems with some link process between Barclays and receiving entities that has caused slow transfers so that might your issue if you are using Barclays and probably will not be solved until after Bank Holiday

    Just a heads up warning for anyone that has recently signed up to the Fineco referral deal and wants to transfer some of their money back to their usual bank that First Direct charge 6 as they appear to treat it as a payment in from a foreign bank (which somewhat surprised me as I was under the impression it was Fineco UK - hence under UK banking auspices - especially as the bank account had a UK sort code and there had been no costs transferring the money into Fineco).

    I will query it with FD and Fineco.

    Anybody transferred any money back to another UK bank and not incurred any fees If so please let me know which banks (I have most of them )

    Update:

    Apparently Fineco use Faster Payments on way in (so no charges) but Swift for payments out to UK banks - hence some banks may treat this as a foreign payment in. Not happy about that.

    Which bank did you transfer back into? Maybe we can get a list of banks that you aren't charged?

    I transferred back into a Barclays account and wasn't charged

    EDIT: Must have been fast asleep when I read the above. I see you used First Direct

    I have signed up (or tried to!) using luke2010's code, but at the stage of signing with the two codes sent by text, the screen displayed an error message with no explanation or option to proceed. Did anyone else have a problem with this step?

    I tried resuming the application through both the welcome email and the 'signature request email', but both resulted in error messages (in Italian no less...)
