I opened my Halifax Ultimate Reward Card 2 years ago and I have to say being with Halifax has been the best experience I have had with a bank so far. The Ultimate Reward Card has so many benefits hence why i am recommending it and I have never had a problem in getting help via customer service or in a branch.I pay ?5 a month for this card and in return I get the following:
Travel InsuranceRAC Breakdown coverMobile phone insuranceHome Emergency CoverCard protectionTravel accident coverPurchase protection Price Promise
When I was offered this card as an option, it was a no brainer! The fact I travel quite frequently and am automatically covered with their travel insurance is wonderful. I also have my Iphone covered and have used the service when my phone was stolen and had no problem in getting a replacement, unlike many other insurers I have dealt with in the past!
This has got to be the best current account I have ever had and really would recommend it.
I think originally the monthly charge for this Ultimate Rewards card from Halifax was ?12.50 per month when it first came out. This charge was applied to the account whether or not you also received the ?5 monthly Reward for crediting the account with the required ?1K.
The monthly charge for having an Ultimate Rewards Current Account increased to ?15 on the 1st September 2011. I stand corrected if I'm wrong. Either way you still get a lot of Goodies for your money, and if you presently are able to receive the monthly Reward of ?5, take this off the ?15 and you get them for just ?10. Not bad going.
