Freebies

It has taken me many years to compile all of this information together. If this blog has helped you, I would be endlessly grateful if you signed up to some of the offers listed below. Best of all, it won’t cost you a penny, and often you get money for free as well!

Typically I get small bonuses when you sign up. Although I’ve listed everything in £, you can often get the equivalent in your currency (particularly USD or EUR). Thank you, from the bottom of my heart.

  1. Fineco – Get £100 if you open an account with Fineco and transfer £1000 into it. You can transfer it out again as soon as you receive the £100. No switching required.
  2. Nationwide – If you switch to Nationwide using my referral code we each get £100. You can also get 5% interest on the money in your account (up to £2500), which is significantly better than most banks out there.
  3. Xoom – a new service provided by PayPal. You can get £10 for free if you make a transfer with my link.
  4. TransferWise – get a discount on your first transfer. If you are transferring money abroad, then TransferWise can do this for you at the lowest rates. Their borderless account also allows you to have bank accounts in several different currencies (GBP, EUR, USD, AUS) and hold money in more than 40 different currencies.
