Re: Virgin Money

There's a message on my latest Virgin Money credit card statement that appears to say they abolished balance transfer fees last month. Not sure if it applies to all their cards, or just the one that I have!

Re: UK base interest rate cut to 0.25%

Nationwide have just notified customers that they're cutting the Loyalty Saver 15yr Iss 4 rate again from 0.95% to 0.75% on 1 March 2017. In a way understandable, as they were paying a market leading rate, but also annoying as I'd just started using this account again and they look a bit silly &...

Re: Extra TSB classic accounts

Club LLoyds looks like an interest rate cut but applied to the same max balance, so guess I'll take no action for now.

Re: Extra TSB classic accounts

Just checked when the interest rate & balance changes take effect; appears to be from 4 January, so it's time to withdraw at least £500 from these accounts...

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.

If you haven't already, I think it would be a good idea to ensure that any Tesco Bank accounts you have are linked with a Tesco Clubcard.

I don't think you'll be able to get a bonus this time around but this isn't the first time they offered bonuses to existing customers by e-mail. It could be worthwhile to open a Tesco Bank savings account, so that you become an existing customer on their mailing list.

I didn't actually haggle at all, but it probably helped that they automatically assumed I was hoping for 2 months lost interest compensation, so they presumably considered £50 instead of £75 to be a win for the bank! :lol:

Re: Extra TSB classic accounts

Well, I've now increased to 5 x TSB Classic Plus so I'll get some benefit even if just for a period of months. Should last until March at the earliest given the change of T&Cs takes effect in January and they're giving at least 2 months notice after that; also there's always the hope they might ...
