Barclays paying customers with over £800 in account free £175 payment

Barclays is giving a free £175 to new customers. New customers can get the cash if they switch to a basic Barclays Bank Account or a Premier Current Account using the Current Account Switching Service (CASS), the high street giant - which is rivalled by the likes of HSBC UK, Nationwide, Santander, Lloyds and more - said.

Customers must also pay at least £800 into the new Barclays account and have two active direct debits linked to the account by August 30. If you meet the criteria you will have the £175 paid into your Barclays bank account within 28 days.
