Get some free money back from the banks
Have you had enough of your current account or credit card provider? Are you sick and tired of what they’ve been getting away with, or are they just not giving you the service that you’re looking for? So switch, and in the process get some free cash.
Ulster Bank have done this in the past, and now PermanentTSB are offering you free cash to switch your current account to them. Halifax (Ireland) are also offering you cash to open a credit card account with them.
If you switch your current account to PermanentTSB and stay for at least a year, they’ll give you €150. There are some conditions which include a minimum deposit of €1000 and saving €100 per month, but in a year you’ll get the free cash.
If you open a new credit card account with Halifax (Ireland), they’ll deposit €100 into your account after your first purchase. They even offer a relatively competitive rate compared to some other credit cards on the market.
