Re: Bank of Scotland Vantage change

Is three the limit please? That's the published limit in the account T&Cs, yes. Although I was prepared to gamble with multiple TSB accounts, in the current climate (and on the off chance that BoS don't cut the rate in the foreseeable future) I'm not prepared to have a go with this one! You may...

Re: Bank of Scotland Vantage change

That is normal (and quite handy I find). Will not affect further applications - but if you want to add the next 2, i'd log in via BoS.... Lots of reports over on MSE about second and subsequent applications being unsuccessful online. Maybe consider phoning instead?...but be prepared for a 30-45 min...

Re: Account Armageddon - TSB, Llloyds, BoS, Halifax

Yes however Tesco Bank is one of the few that haven't made any recent changes, so they may yet decide to reduce the balance/rate for interest payments. I speculated elsewhere that they may even leave the rate where it is, but limit new applicants to one account going forwards. After all, for most p...

I haven't had the email myself, but the one I've seen reproduced elsewhere seems to say you can switch into an existing account.

Re: Co-op account opportunity
