So what savings accounts are people using to fund the £500?

Asking as my usual has "suspended debit card funding" but can still do a BACS transfer which as we know is no good for the Halifax reward.

Has anyone successfully done 2 x £100 for the switching offer? I got my £100 last week, and after logging in to my Halifax account the other day, I was bombarded with banner ads telling me I can get £100 for switching.

Virgin Money have a current account paying 2.02% on 1st £1,000 and access to a Savings account paying 0.50%. No minimum monthly credit to current account, or direct debits required. Just pay in £1,000 in and leave it there. Interest paid monthly on current account, so log on and transfer interest to linked savings each month, where interest paid quarterly, so some other account paying more than 0.5%.

Additionally, if you use you Virgin Money debit card abroad, there are zero transaction fees.

Not me, I didn't get £100 for my second switch. The T&Cs would appear to preclude it; although it seemed worth a try anyway!
