Free bank account

Post by djctu » Sat Jun 17, 2017 3:02 am

Im really gutted i never seen this earlier, I applied for one of these and I got my card 2 days later

Its perfect for someone that needs a bank account, you can get your wages paid into your new account too
great to have it as a second account to fall back on if needed

fee's - i would say they are reasonable, you can transfer money and use the card to make payments without paying fees

the reason why im gutted is that you can get back over £8.00 in cashback if you use the link below, I missed out there but you shouldnt ... mastercard

Not really a substitute for a proper bank account
- no direct debits
- no online payments for any other reason

There are plenty of free bank accounts out there offering full service. This seems of limited value except for earning the cashback on setting it up.

If the op was a new member, there would be a strong whiff of spam.

would depend on what they offer for the price, or even if the price is a set price and not avoidable like many banks are if you pay in so much and month or other such things like having another product with them than the fee is waived

but ya i dont pay for any of my accounts nor would i for the kind the some banks that offer at a price, that are 99% of the time cheaper else where like insurance ect
