Re: Aqua Reward Credit Card

Quidco works in mysterious ways sometimes. Despite my Aqua cashback originally being declined, my claim rejected and my complaint dismissed, I just received notification of Aqua £48 payable completely out of nowhere!

Naturally, I hurried to withdraw as quickly as possible... :D

Re: SunLife's Over 50 Plan Offer

Yeah, it seems pretty straightforward; they surely wouldn't want to discourage fully qualified customers from giving them decades of premiums. I've had success with many similar offers on 'term assurance' products, however I'm avoiding them lately since they now tend to have no-repeat clauses for th...

Re: SunLife's Over 50 Plan Offer

I looked at some comments on MSE after making the above post. It seems to be successful prospect, although I note that the incentive has varied in recent years (previously £100 or goods valued up to £120 have been offered) on a downward trend, whilst the minimum number of payments to qualify for the...

Re: SunLife's Over 50 Plan Offer

Nice potential profit there. I suppose, some possible snags: * Are you aged 49-85? 8-) * Premium might be higher than the minimum, depending on answers given. * They get your data, or whatever data you enter. * They can ask for ID or decide not to award the gift card, if they wish. Plan T&Cs: ht...

Correction - the account fee is £3.00/month. I opened one of these accounts a few days ago and initiated the switch; with 2 direct debits the offer is worth £132.00 in the first year (i.e. profit £11.00/month).

Re: Natwest £100 switch

Well, never did I imagine that the simple act of opening a Natwest current account would begin a saga where I end up on the brink of involving the Financial Ombudsman Service before the account is even fully up and running!
