Open a bank account at marksandspencer.com/bank before the end of February 2013 and M&S will give you a gift card worth £100 that you can spend on anything you like in M&S. Not bad for opening a current account and you don’t even have to switch your banking over to them.
If you do want to switch form your current bank then the marksandspencer.com/bank offer has an extra bonus. Switch your banking to M&S when you sign up at marksandspencer.com/bank and they will send you a shopping voucher every month for 12 months. These vouchers get you 20pct off one transaction per month up to the value of £250. That’s 20pct off one transaction of up to £250, not £250 discount per month! This deal could be worth up to £600 if you get the maximum discount allowed, but you do have to pay a monthly fee for this account so make sure that the saving you make on your shopping every month is more than the fee (currently £15) Make sure that the up front voucher offers and monthly deals make it worth while paying £15 a month.
On top of the voucher deals you also get a ‘Birthday Gift’, triple points on the M&S credit card and double points on the M&S Debit Card, and hot drinks vouchers for the M&S cafe.
Switching with the marksandspencer.com/bank offer means moving at least 2 direct debits or standing orders to your Marks and Spencer Account within the first 6 months of the account being opened.
