Re: Bank of Scotland Vantage change

yes, it wasn't That sneaky though.. it's clear in their letter. i've tended to keep £4/5k in ClubLloyds, and that's been handy as the origin and destination of my 'round robin' funds -- but i'm planning to stash more away with a local Co-op and run my current accounts pot a lot leaner, even if it me...

i'd say that's sensible.. i didn't have RSs with any of those anyway, but i too plan to retain Club Lloyds. i find it to be a useful current account.
only RSs i have are at 5%: HSBC, M&S, Nationwide, along with various monthly DDs in to Friendly Societies and a Credit Union.

Re: Extra TSB classic accounts

i don't have any accounts with Tesco at all nowadays.
all of my c/as are linked to MonBS and POBOS, along with other DDs to FSs, our CU, Ecology etc.
i don't envisage closing ClubLloyds or TSB Classic any time soon.

Re: Amazon Credit Card

yes, that's an interesting concept. the first point is fairly standard, but i wonder which other cards might allow you to 'purchase' cash withdrawals.. and i wonder whether i might find revolut useful.
