I was delighted. I switched from my secondary Tesco account when Tesco exited. I plonked £100k in and after a few weeks got a call from a lovely lady in Glasgow. She established that Barclays would be my secondary account and I wouldn’t be paying my salary in and that I had no interest in any of their products.

I’m in the process of drip feeding the £100k into investment trusts so at 10 basis points for that service I’ll be paying approx £100 for an upgrade voucher. And I like having a backup account. And who knows, one day being able to take £1,000 out of an ATM might be handy.

Since then I’ve heard nothing which is perfect.

I got my 25k bonus Avios, occasionally use the App which is clunky but functional and rarely use the web version as it is barely functional.

But everything works as it should.

HSBC remains my primary account though.
