To qualify for the £125, use the Current Account Switch Service to transfer and close your old account held elsewhere. Start your switch by 5th April 2015. Excludes anyone who's had £100 for switching to Halifax since January 2012.
To qualify for the £125 switching offer ("the offer") you must use the 'Current Account Switch Service' and meet the following conditions:
You are not eligible for this offer if you have received £100 for switching to a Halifax bank account at any point since January 2012.
Customers switching a Bank of Scotland bank account to Halifax are not eligible for the offer.
The Current Account Switch Guarantee ensures your current account will switch on a working day of your choice. Your payments will be automatically transferred and redirected to your new account, and in the unlikely event you incur any charges on your old or new bank account due to an error or delay, you will be refunded in full when this is brought to our attention.
The switch begins...
Once you've asked us to switch you over and chosen your switch date, we start by contacting your old bank.
We'll let you know that your old bank has approved your request, and then we can start transferring your payment arrangements across to your Halifax current account.
It'll take a couple of days to switch over your payment arrangements, and make sure your Halifax account is ready to go for the switch date.
If you're clearing a debit balance at your old account, you'll need to make sure there are enough funds in your Halifax account to cover this transfer.
Congratulations - your switch is complete.
Your balance is transferred and your old bank account is closed.
For 13 months after your switch, payments sent to or requested from your old account will be redirected to your new account.
