    Open FlexDirect acoount for son, but was sent a different card. Put 2500 right at the beginning of the month and got no interest. Then realised I was sent the wrong card. So quickly updated to FlexDirect and got sent the right card. At the end of the month, got no interest and was told I was penalised for transferring 1000 from my own Nationwide account to sons' account. Then, I transferred the money from another bank and lo and behold about 3 interest. Phoned up and now this time was told son had an account closed in 2015. I feel aggrieved, being robbed to fund the CEO who earns 3m and fund the horrible adverts which make me channel surf! Very annoying.

    If you want to open an account with Nationwide, beware of all their tricks.

    As others have already said, no trickery on behalf of Nationwide was involved. Their T&Cs are freely available, easy to read, and you were asked to confirm that you had read the T&Cs. You should have learnt your lesson from this experience. Good luck with your next foray into bonus bagging.

    Are there really no bank accounts that offer cashback via TopCashback?
    I don't want to switch, just open another account. Thought I'd at least be able to get a tenner...

    Bank of Scotland is cutting the interest rate on their current account (w/Vantage).

    "From the 1st July 2018, we are making some changes to this account.

    We will be changing the interest you can earn on Vantage accounts. The current interest rate of 2% AER/1.98% gross variable, payable on balances between 1 and 5,000, will reduce to 1.5% AER/1.49% gross variable. To earn interest you will still need to pay two different Direct Debits each calendar month, pay at least 1,000 into your account each calendar month, and stay in credit (above 0) during the monthly billing period."

    We had already decided to empty our 6 BOS classic vantage accounts at the beginning of next month due to the the bottom of the range 2% interest rate and loss of Tesco DD`s necessitating finding 12 new DD`s. We will cancel our 1000 in/out standing orders after this months have gone through and keep 1 in each classic account because of the 2.5% monthly savers condition of having a BOS current account.

    Is this the beginning of the end for high interest current accounts? Club Lloyds offer better benefits than BOS - 6 cinema tickets a year plus a 3% Club Lloyds monthly saver with 400 maximum contribution, but the 1.5% rate is abyssmal. Will Halifax reduce its 3 a month on its current account?

    Hmmm... First Direct have a "big announcement" very soon.

    A spokesman replied: 'It would be fair to say it's been a long term fixture.

    'What I can tell you is we've a big announcement very soon and will let you know as soon as we're able to.!

    'Needless to say its exciting and pioneering as youd expect from First Direct.'

    Let the speculation begin...
    Did you really mean to put loose?
    Lose: no longer possess, not to retain, unable to find
    Loose: not firmly or tightly fixed in place
