1 We use a range of third party providers for the Ultimate Reward Current Account benefits. For full details of the benefits, policies, account terms and conditions and the range of third party providers we use, please read the Getting Started Guide (PDF).

The Ultimate Reward Current Account will cost £17 a month. However, if in the previous calendar month you pay in £750 or more and pay out at least 2 different direct debits and remain in credit you will receive a discount of £2, reducing your monthly account fee to £15. You'll also need to keep your account open/not change it to a different type of current account until the fee is due to be debited (by the second working day of the following calendar month).

Halifax current accounts and services are offered subject to status. Available only to personal customers aged 18 or over who are resident in the UK.

*Based on Halifax internal switch data since the Current Account Switch Service launched in September 2013
