*£100 Cashback for Switching to Santander Current Account**
Santander bank is extending their £100 cashback offer to new customers who move their current account to them.
UK consumers are being offered £100 cashback for switching their main current account to Santander. The offer will now be available in branch, by phone and online from today after previously only being available if customers applied online.
The offer is said to be available for a limited time only for customers who switch to Santander’s Zero, Reward or Premium accounts or the new Preferred Current Account.
“Switch to any one of these accounts and we’ll give you £100, but hurry – this offer will be available for a limited time only,” said Nici Audhlam-Gardiner, Santander banking director.
This market-leading offer also entitles customers to receive five percent credit interest on balances up to £2,500.
The offer has been popular with consumers already, as in 2010 more than one million people opened an account with Santander.
The bank states the switch is smooth and hassle-free as customers can have all their existing standing orders, bills and direct debits transferred from their old bank to their new Santander account with the help of a dedicated switching team.
To benefit from the £100 offer, customers must switch to Santander and credit their account with £1,000 each month. If customers have held in the past three months or currently hold any Santander UK, Alliance & Leicester, cahoot or Cater Allen current account they are not eligible for the offer.
The customer will receive the £100 cashback within three months of opening their new account providing they have at least two active direct debits or standing orders set up on the account within 11 weeks, and have paid in at least £1,000 each month.
If money is tight at the moment and you could do with some extra cash then switching current accounts could be a good move. However, check overdraft fees and other offers on the market before committing to one provider as those offering the best cashback offers may not suit your spending habits.
