Re: Best Spending Card to back up Amex Cashback?

ah yes, there could be a benefit in retaining that BCAmex afterall.. good thinking Sarah. from what i've read, i think moving to BC Cashback ought to be possible. i quite fancy HHonors, but i don't think that is likely to be transferred in to. according to rewards calculator at MSE it works out to 1...

Re: HSBC

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

fwiw though joker, i've always found that Lloyds have been far more generous, and flexible, re. limits than Halifax. this has included times when i've had active, relatively high balance Halifax accounts, and no accounts at all with Lloyds.

Re: HSBC

agreed kp. i applied the other week and have the account.

Re: Best current account - leaving Santander

i would compare Santander with NatWest carefully, and then look to use additional accounts including Nationwide and TSB for interest on balances.
