    We set aside the money you need for your bills, and the rest goes on your debit cards, so you know exactly what’s yours to spend.

  • No unexpected fees or charges

  • Payment made to your old account? No worries

    We’ll transfer your balance and redirect payments made to your old account to your new joint account for at least 36 months.

We have designed the Current Account Switch Service to let you switch your current account from one bank or building society to another in a simple, reliable and stress-free way. It will only take seven working days. As your new current-account provider we offer the following guarantee.

  • The service is free to use and you can choose and agree your switch date with us.
  • We will take care of moving all your payments going out (for example, your Direct Debits and standing orders) and those coming in (for example, your salary).
  • If you have money in your old account, we will transfer it to your new account on your switch date.
  • We will arrange for payments accidentally made to your old account to be automatically redirected to your new account. We will also contact the sender and give them your new account details.
  • If there are any issues in making the switch, we will contact you before your switch date.
  • If anything goes wrong with the switch, as soon as we are told, we will refund any interest (paid or lost) and charges made on either your old or new current accounts as a result of this failure.

You can apply for the credit facility three months after you’ve paid your first income into your thinkmoney Current Account. This means you could access a credit facility up to £400. We’ll need to carry out some affordability checks and then you’ll be able to apply for and access the credit facility through Online Account Management, subject to eligibility.

The money you hold in your thinkmoney Current Account is not protected under the Financial Services Compensation Scheme (FSCS). As thinkmoney is authorised and regulated by the FCA as an e-Money Institution, your money is protected and, unlike the FSCS, this protection is not limited to a certain amount. This means that your money is held separately and securely and, if something were to happen to thinkmoney, you would always receive it back.

Yes, there is an option in the online form to open a joint account. Joint accounts cost £15 per month.
