    The Santander referral code scheme is back.

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

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

    How many Lloyds accounts had you already got when you tried to apply for another? You can only have up to 10 current accounts open with each of the LBG brands at one time.

    At the time I had above mentioned problem, only 1 of each Halifax/BOS/Lloyds, Bulk of accounts opened to switch to Santander were via them,did only open 1 at a time, never had more than two Lloyds/BOS open at any one time with 1 of each generally switching out.

    When my only remaining Lloyds C/A switched out I did try and open another - same problem, will only lose sleep over it if Lloyds Bank offer a switch incentive ( which they never do)

    Re LBG, I just hold 1 Halifax C/A now

    Out of interest, which bank has no limit please? I believe 3 seems to be the limit (at any one time) on many bank platforms?

    I know that Nationwide and Santander still allow at least 4. Santander used to have no limits, and I had 6 with them for a long time, even after they reduced the number of 123 accounts you could have.

    This is all sole accounts - at all banks, you can have at least 1 if not more joint accounts, in addition to the sole accounts.

    The Santander limit seems to be 5 from reports on here and elsewhere (and personal experience with application 6 getting rejected!).

    It may well be some kind of bar linked to Identity as ID score gets hit by making loads of online account applications, just over week ago switched Barclays out, applied for new Barclays which was accepted was asked ID questions based on Infomation held by Equifax, multiple choice questions like which of these Banks might you have opened an account with during May, I was pretty sure two options given were correct answer


    Currently I still have online access to Lloyds Monthly savers, can move funds in and out, if that changes I will phone asking for funds to be sent to me/my external account and then I will say reason for not currently holding a L.B C/A

    I have now received all my codes due.
    The ones I received today were claimed on 31.05.19 and 05.06.19.
    It appears they are having a good sort out to get all outstanding claims paid !

    There are lots more claims from after June 5 outstanding. All of them well within the up to three weeks they said it would take.

    I'm fairly sure that if you return something that was bought with gift voucher that amazon issue a new gift credit to your account, thus another ten years til expiry.

    And if you return too much stuff, they can close your account, so I've heard. Which may or may not include a gift card balance?!

    True, I have heard the same thing but not seen it first hand.

    The return/refund question should be hypothetical anyway, even with hundreds/thousands of pounds to spend at Amazon over the next decade I should think most people can find something worthwhile to spend given the range of products offered.

    I tend not to redeem my gift vouchers until I intend to spend them, that way I can gift them to other people to use on their accounts too.

    Not happy to be contacted via PM by a poster on this thread, and asked to pay them 10 each for using two of our codes which were on offer, greedy or what!

    I have helped out several MSE members using their RAF codes for a 10.00 incentive, being as you had so many codes so near to end of the promotion with codes easy to come by I hoped by making the suggestion that I made might help you out to gain 100.00 in Amazon gift certificate credit that you might not otherwise get.


    Edit so as not to add another post, even with post edits/deletions on other thread, there are posts with incentives offered to use someones codes/more than 1 person including me has posted on the thread asking if anyone is willing to offer an incentive for using a Santander RAF code, reason I sent PM rather than posting on the other thread it has subsequently been made very clear only 1 post can be made on the other thread, I apologise to harz99 for any offence caused by the PM

    Firstly, if we'd agreed it would be an 80 gain for us not 100, secondly that's not how we personally do things, nor I suspect is it MSE's - mutual gain is fine with no money changing hands, a charity donation after the event was successful maybe, but finally please don't try and kid us that you are helping us out!

    It is quite common for incentives to be offered on referrals. For some reason, which i can't fathom, it is perfectly fine on some threads, but not on others. This is usually viewed as being beneficial to both parties. I can't see how anybody being asked if they would like to offer an incentive for their codes to be used would find this offensive, especially with the fact that there is precious little time left for them to be used and will almost certainly go unused which will make the person left with the codes out of pocket, even if the net gain would have been less than the codes viewed worth.
