    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

    How strange - referrer and I have received one code each from a claim on 29th May - I submitted 5, one after the other, only one voucher received so far and this was the second .

    Isn't it marvellous! Two letters from Tesco this morning dated June 7th, telling me that if they don't hear from me they will start switching my accounts, etc, etc.

    My switches complete tomorrow.

    In other words, they were happy to send out normal statements, plus switch my entire account balance to another bank account at my address, yet told me they needed address confirmation to send out transaction history. Oddly enough, my father did a switch from Tesco the week before and received his transaction history through the post without having to confirm anything.

    People have talked about the costs of this crazy promotion being met by Santander. But it's not actually cheap on the part of the banks at the other end of his stampede!

    Nor Amazon, as i seriously doubt Santander are giving them the full 50 for each voucher sent to us switchers. There's some pretty big ticket household stuff that can be got with the full 1k value if a couple pool there's into one Amazon account.

    Some vouchers received today, having referred someone on here.

    By 10.30 this morning on the day that my switches completed I had two e-mails from Santander with my Amazon codes. I hadn't got round to asking for them yet.

    Either they have become super efficient or I'm special

    PS: I feel a little embarrassed. They are vouchers via 'a friend' not my accounts.

    The two Amazon codes are the same, to add to things.

    Received 2 from claims made on 29th May yesterday. Have 2 outstanding from the same date which I’m hoping I’ll receive today. Otherwise we’re upto date for claims made upto 4th June.

    Received a bunch of Amazon vouchers today for claims made on June 3rd and 4th. I am due only two more providing that the person I referred completed the switch and claim form.

    Are we going to have a tally up and put together a leaderboard of number of Amazon vouchers collected?

    There is someone on hotukdeals (might be on here too?) who has managed an amazing 10k worth.
