the account is on the way out, cDecember.
the £5/m days were handy.. just £2/m nowadays, so not a huge loss, but still a shame.
apparently they are going to be offering something to 'reward loyalty' of account holders. we shall see.

I wish that I'd switched more accounts to Santander earlier this year... fewer and fewer are worth keeping now!

Bring on the next big switch opportunity! :D

agreed Sarah. although i'm having challenges with approvals nowadays.. and i'm kind of tempted to scrap accounts and just run HSBC and Lloyds current accounts for simplicity.

Are you sure this change isn't just for the fee-based Ultimate Reward account? It seems changes to that account were announced last month and apply from November for existing customers or December for new customers.

Halifax are still advertising the £2 reward for new Halifax Reward customers right now, with no mention of it coming to an end and no published revisions to T&Cs since February.
