No. Not Ollie.

Thinking of switching from Nationwide and Santander or M&S Bank look appealing.

Anyone got experience of those 2?

Pretty sure most do a referral fee if you can find someone who banks already, and also go through a cashback site too.

Free money.

Use Nationwide & Santander,   both very good,  easy to use websites, and both pay a bonus when joining if a friend refers you.
Only downside with Santander is that you have to pay in at the post office,  which is a pain as our post office always has queues, although I only use it online and just transfer money from one account to another (when I have some !).
Both issue debit cards so you can pay for goods and withdraw cash at any link machine.

Well technically they don't. They hold a promise of credit. Effectively an IOU.

You knew that though, I'm sure.

Not sure if First Direct still bung you cash for a switch, they did last year when I switched to them. All been OK so far, can service account at the Post Office which is good for me living in the sticks but with a post office in the village, plus the call centres are all UK based.

First direct will offer you a gift to the tune of c.£150 now, rather than outright cash, to switch.

HSBC have the best switch offer on the market at £200 total (£150 up front, £50 after a year) but that means dealing with their piss poor service for a year
