Take a look at the terms and conditions

To apply

Simply call us on 0800 011 3507 or visit the Private Current Account page. Remember, you’ll need to meet the eligibility for the account you’re applying for, and meet the switcher offer terms to quality for the additional £130 cashback.

Cashback payment
60 days after you tell us to switch your account, we’ll check to make sure you are eligible and then pay £130 cashback into your qualifying account within the next 30 days. So you can expect payment around 90 days after you tell us to switch your account, as long as you’ve met the eligibility criteria.

If the qualifying account is held in joint names and you are eligible for the cashback payment, then we will make one payment only (you will not get one payment each). 

We reserve the right to not make any cashback payment where we suspect or are made aware that the switcher offer is being abused for example by closing an existing current account in order to switch back to us to receive the cashback payment.

If you’ve asked to switch during the offer and we then withdraw the offer before your switch completes, you’ll still be eligible for the cashback as long as you meet the eligibility criteria. 

If you think you’ve met eligibility criteria and haven’t received your £130 after the 90 days, you can call us on 0800 011 3507.

This offer applies to requests to switch that we receive on or before 21 October 2021. It can be withdrawn at any time.

Available to clients with investments or savings of over £500,000, or a gross annual income in excess of £250,000.
