Hurry before £200 Co-op current account deal ends

Wad of 20s

Two weeks ago the Co-operative Bank launched a fantastic offer. It offered £200 to anyone who opened a current account with it and made it their main account.

That's a staggeringly good deal when you consider that it is double what any other bank is offering as a switching incentive - a point that wasn't missed by thousands of us.

Unprecedented demand

After unprecedented levels of demand the Co-op has pulled the offer from its website and phone lines. So if you want it now you'll need to head to a branch to apply.

How you can make up to £700 from switching accounts

And if you are planning to apply get to your local branch fast - Co-op has told Moneywise that the deal won't be around for much longer. "Stocks are limited so it is likely not to be around too much longer," says a spokesperson.

We expect the offer will disappear completely next week.

You can apply for a current account in any of the Co-operative Bank or Britannia branches around the country – most are open on Saturdays – so put it on your to do list for this weekend.

To get the £200 you need to open a current account and request a 'full switch' from another provider – this means switching all your direct debits and standing orders to the Co-operative Bank. Once you've done all that you need to credit your account with at least £800 for the first three months to receive the £200.

PLEASE NOTE: The Co-op £200 deal has now ended.
