    switching Starling to Natwest 11th Jan 19 at 12:43 PM
    Hello, I've recently opened a Starling account for the sole purpose of switching it to Natwest, to get the 150 switch incentive. The account is verified and I've just received the Starling card today. Is there any wait period with Starling - because it's a new account - to initiate the full switch to Natwest, or I can do it now, since the Starling account is up and running? Thanks.

    I suggest you put some money into the Starling account before switching, so that there is actually something for NatWest to switch

    Thank you, I'm not interested in Starling. My current account banking needs are met with Barclays and Nationwide.

    Would 1 be enough to put into Starling, to switch over to Natwest?
