Pay a fiver to get back a fiver! I don't think so.

I've been with Barclays for decades, and this has been a good little earner in recent years, despite the increased fee from £3 to £4 not so long ago.

For some reason, the browsers on my PC don't like their website anyway, so time to change banks, methinks.

Well, it could be worse... at least it'll still break even if we don't rush to cancel. :lol:

I'll probably switch my account out when the changes take place. I've had a couple of years of double rewards previously for switching into Barclays, but not going to hang on after this simply in hope of those happening again.

There are many decent switching deals/bribes out there, if you decide so to do.

I applied for the HSBC Advance account yesterday, [via an MSE link]... and was declined! :wtf:

In my experience HSBC do tend to be a little fussy.

I've just completed a switch from Barclays to a Santander 1-2-3 account.

Should be worth about a fiver back each month on utility bill payments etc. Not to mention £140 cashback for switching.

I've just been looking for the page to amend my bank details for iMutual payouts, but seem to be going round in circles. :roll:

Presumably, it's on the Redeem by BACS option page, but that doesn't go anywhere, due to the minimum payout being £5.

Has anyone done this recently?

I think you will find you can do this when you request a payment.

Yes, when you click Redeem By BACS it remembers the details you last used or you can enter different account details.

That's what I would have thought.

The problem is that I can't request a payment due to the £5 minimum, and it's set to automatic redemption, which I can't change either.
