Brits have less than two weeks to claim free £170 from HSBC bank

Bank customers have less than two weeks left to claim a free £170 switch offer from HSBC.

The money is being offered to those who make the move over to the HSBC Advance current account by July 18.

To be eligible, you'll need to transfer over at least direct debits or standing orders and pay in at least £1,500 in the first 60 days.

Then once you've done that, the £170 will be paid within 30 days.

To claim the cash, you can't have had a HSBC current account or opened one with its sister bank First Direct, since January 2019.

You must be moving from a current account that's not with HSBC or First Direct.

The account doesn't come with a monthly fee to keep it open and arranged overdrafts are charged at 39.9% EAR variable.

You can visit the HSBC website for more information on how to switch.

And this isn't the only bank to offer a switch incentive right now, but it's the top-paying.

First Direct is giving £120 for Brits who switch to its 1st Account or £20 for those who open and use mobile banking in three months.

Existing customers who switch to the Nationwide FlexDirect account can get £125, or new customers can claim £100.

If you move to the Virgin Money M Plus account, you can get 20,000 Virgin Red points to spend on experiences, gifts or even flights.

Banks can pull their switch deals at any time, so keep in mind the exact details of what is on offer can be subject to change.

The bank bribe might come in handy during the cost of living crisis.
