Closed account

I do like to do a little tidy from time to time and close unused cards. This has two objectives - I can come back in 6 or 12 months as a new customer and get new offers and it reduces my overall credit limit down as I feel a really big available amount can reduce my chance of acceptance. My last 2 a...

Re: Money management

StringyBob, I had some problems installing and setting up firstdirect and I know exactly the message you quote. I forget how I overcame the problem but I do remember calling FD for help, perhaps it didn't work with Chrome/Firefox, or I have pop ups and security settings I needed to relax. I've becom...

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.

Re: Best Spending Card to back up Amex Cashback?

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.
