    Best Bank Accounts Without Switching 8th Jan 18 at 11:19 AM
    Hey, I'm just wondering, does anyone know of any bank accounts which offer any incentives / benefits for opening an account without having to fully switch direct debits / income etc over from your current bank account (I.e. if you were looking to open a second current account).

    Most of the bank welcome offers I've seen on here seem to be dependent on using their switch service to fully switch and close your old account so just wanted to check if anyone knew of any this doesn't apply to.

    Not aware of any but there shouldn't be anything stopping you from opening a second sacrificial/donor account with your current bank and switching that (once ensuring it satisfies the relevant offer Ts & Cs), if you want to retain your existing account....
