I have been a Tide member since 2017 and was happy enough (the amount of time it takes funds to appear is pretty long compared to other banks) so I recommend them 2 other organisations in March this year. The first one was a sole trader and it took ages to get through the setup (it only took me a couple of hours as a Ltd company) but eventually it was done. However it has taken months and several chasing messages to get the reward paid for the introduction.
The second organisation is also a Ltd company (owned by me) but still a separate legal entity. Nope say Tide you are the same person so you don’t qualify.
within days Tide send me a promotional email saying if I have 2 companies there is a new promotion where i can link them together and use on a single device. Great I said do you want to retrospectively apply it to my accounts after all your support chats state that I am the same person on both accounts. The answer. Close one account at reopen it any you will qualify. Well what are the admin charges relating to that amount of administration for Tide!!
Definitely looking at my other options
