Re: Money management

Stringybob, You say you don't get on with fd internetplus, why's that? I'm a user, it has some foibles but mostly I find it really handy. I run about 40 accounts with it and the alternatives seem daunting, spreadsheets lists and all those passwords and log ins. I used to have an Egg account Money Ma...

Re: Donor accounts... Where to open them?

Tesco, that's right, cheers, and Post office for a spare. I've got First Direct and HSBC accounts, both offering me 6% regular savers but I fancy a M&S too and they give a good reg saver plus vouchers for switching. I wanted to go the M&S route too - I already have a CC with them - so decide...

I remember it being flat £25 which for the big balances was a nice win, I don't remember if/when I noticed it changing.

Re: Best Spending Card to back up Amex Cashback?

Sarah, Your post made me look again at the rest of the thread and I had got the wrong end of the stick. It's the nationwide card being used to settle the Asda credit card bill. The nationwide card does have an intro fee-free period for BTs. It does offer 0.5% cash back but only for sterling purchase...

Re: Best Spending Card to back up Amex Cashback?

Planteria, If I've understood it correctly and I've not got an Asda nor checked the specifics just interpreted what I read here. If the card treats a BT as a purchase, just after statement date BT the max onto the MBNA transfer card. Money Transfer that to your current account then away into your be...

I'd await confirmation from the next statement but that looks like a great wheeze, potentially more valuable as a round robin plan than just double loyalty.

Re: New CC application, should I lower existing card limit and apply at bank with existing accounts?

I'd say I agreed with Stooz that it's only when you're at multiples above earnings/affordability in limits, it might help to bring them down, but I don't know what I base that thought on. I did have a go at reducing my stable of cards a few years back following a flurry of rejections and, after sitt...
