    Santander Refer a Friend 17th Feb 19 at 6:51 PM
    The Santander referral code scheme is back.

    Just going through the terms and looks like a couple can refer each other five times

    Sorry if this has been answered up thread...

    Can you, as a joint 123 lite account holder, recommend the other joint account holder and have them switch a non Santander account into said joint account. Or is this deemed to be recommending yourself??

    Yes you can switch a sole account into a joint account and receive the gift cards. I recommended my husband who switched his sole BOS into our joint 123 Lite and we both received the gift cards.

    If you are going to switch a joint into a joint then you would have to have someone else refer you as that would be classed as referring yourself.

    Thanks everyone. Can you switch in to an existing account on-line? As I can't see a button for it?

    No. Can only switch online if opening a new account.

    switching over the phone was really great for me.

    2 accounts switched in 8.5 mins and email confirmation was instant.

    so anyone a bit put off, don't be. security check was straightforward too.

    All claims submitted prior to 3rd April received.

    One claim outstanding that was submitted on 4th.

    Has anyone received referrer AND referee codes for claims submitted beyond 3rd April?

We don't seem to have received the referrer codes for three that came through with the messed up gender (so Anon in the subject but Mrs Anon in the main body of the email). I am just wondering if the gender corruption was a sign of a wider problem (possibly yes given the missing vouchers).

    Thanks

    Yep I got all mine in the Friday tranche, after I have at last had conf from one of my referrers.

    For me these randomly go to junk mail, at least in outlook. It doesn't make it as far as my email client's junk mail - I have to log in to outlook.com to check.

    my first switch is due to happen tomorrow. once the other accounts balance is showing in my Santander account is it safe to fill in the RaF details, or should I wait another working day?

    I remember switching a year or two back and the old account was still accessible a couple of days after the switch.

    thank you.

    I claimed all mine on the day the switch completed. All but one got paid promptly. The missing one I had to chase up. It's unclear why it was missing but it got then paid without delay.

    How long did you wait before chasing. I have some still outstanding from end of March.

    22/3 claims only came through on Friday, so there may still be a backlog as they don't seem to process in a logical order (some since 30/3 seem to have been processed - I have received referree but not referrer codes etc). If there are reports of vouchers coming through this week, and you still haven't received them, then a call can't hurt to get an update.

    With all ours I've left making the claim until the day after switch completion.

    When two switches completed on the same day, I delayed making the second claim a further day so i only made one claim per day.

    Might be overkill, but I'm cautious by nature.

    As there have been no further reports of any voucher awards, I take it that nobody got any this week. I certainly didn't receive any. They still owe me 3

    I can answer my own question, having switched 5 accounts in one go in one telephone call and can confirm that my referrer and I both received 5 lots of 50 amazon gift cards. Hope this helps others

    OH hates ringing banks, so if not will end up with applying for 3 new santander accounts
    Typically confused and asking for advice
