ROYAL Bank of Scot­land is of­fer­ing £100 to cus­tomers who open a bank ac­count.

The bribe comes just weeks after the bank was voted one of the worst cur­rent ac­count providers. Out of 19 banks, RBS ranked 18th for over­all ser­vice and bottom for its branches in the Com­pe­ti­tion and Mar­kets Au­thor­ity sur­vey.

The cash is avail­able to new and ex­ist­ing cus­tomers un­til Novem­ber 19, but you must not have claimed a switch­ing bonus since Oc­to­ber 2017. You can choose be­tween the bank’s free Se­lect ac­count or its £2-a-month Re­ward ac­count. To qual­ify, cus­tomers must pay in at least £1,500 each month, and log into on­line or mo­bile bank­ing be­fore De­cem­ber 30.

Hal­i­fax also of­fers £100 to cus­tomers who switch to its re­ward cur­rent ac­count be­fore Septem­ber 14. The ac­count is free if you pay in £1,500 a month, or £3 a month if not.
