Deal Klaxon: £200 free for switching your bank account

Bank 1 If you’re looking to stomp off in a huff from your current bank, then a deal has appeared on ‘the scene’ that might just tempt you.

Presently gaining muchos heatos over at HotUKDeals, it’s an offer of £200 from the Co-op Bank for new customers who switch to them. Yep, that’s a couple of hundred quid for you, simply for filling in a form. Plus, the Co-op are supposedly an 'ethical' bank, so your money probably won't be spent on landmines and baby poison.

It’s a limited offer and could be withdrawn at any moment so it won’t pay you to think about it for too long. Also, you’ll need to pay £800 per month into the new account for three months in order to qualify for it, but apart from that, it’s pretty much free dough for you. GO!

    Don't hesitate! The Co-Op bank is excellent for both its online banking (I have a current account with the Co-Op's Smile bank) as well as its mortgage service. The great thing with the Co-Op is that they have call centres in the UK and you can speak to someone with a Mancunian accent which is really quite nice!

    I've been a Smile customer for years and have found them passable. Nice enough company to deal with, but their online banking is looking dated and has been a nightmare to use since they introduced those bloody card readers that you need to have for setting up transactions. I lost mine in a house move and couldn't pay the rent for two months. Good deal though.

What do you think?
