Martin Lewis says Natwest, Halifax and Lloyds customers get £600 from Santander


Customers at banks including Natwest, Halifax, LLoyds and RBS can get a £600 handout now with a Santander switch says Martin Lewis.

The Money Saving Expert tweeted about a very tempting new deal from the Spanish banking giant which will give customers £600 in total for making the jump from another high street bank. Martin Lewis said the new bank switch deal comes with “serious perks.”

He tweeted: “Santander’s launched a new bank switch deal, with some serious perks… FREE £175 + 7 percent savings + 1 percent cashback on bills + cheap spending abroad + possible 2 percent cashback on all spending.”

Switching to Santander will give customers an instant £175 up front, and from there, Santander customers will have access to Santander Edge accounts.

It costs £3 a month but offers £10 a month cashback on regular bills and another £10 a month cashback on food and travel spending.

Edge accounts also come with a very attractive 7 percent savings rate linked to it, which will provide about £270 interest per year when maxed out with £4,000 in.

Finally, you get cheap spending overseas – there’s no foreign exchange fee on spending abroad, similar to a Chase card, and you can also link an Edge credit card for another 2 percent cashback.

Taken together, all the cash incentives equal £600 a year.
