Martin Lewis shares 'easy peasy' two minute move to get up to £180 free cash – and it's not switching bank accounts | The Sun
MARTIN Lewis has revealed how consumers can receive up to £180 of free cash per year by spending just two minutes of their time on an "easy peasy" move.
Martin, founder of Money Saving Expert website, has told customers how they can earn £180 per year from buying things in shops.
Martin urged people to spend just "two minutes" signing up for the app-only Chase current account.
Customers then use their phones to pay for goods and services, and should make £15 per month. The comes to £180 per year.
Speaking on his BBC podcast, Martin said that by spending just a couple of minutes signing up for the app customers could earn £180 per year. He said it was "easy peasy" to sign up for the card.
The consumer rights champion said it had other benefits, and was the "cheapest for spending overseas."
Martin recently urged customers to think about signing up for a new HSBC account to receive £205 of free cash.
The deal from HSBC allows you to claim the £205 by setting up an HSBC Advance or Premier account. Only new customers will receive the £205.
Martin posted: "Right now there’s a bank that will pay you for opening an account, but you don’t need to use its switching service.
“You don’t need to switch to it so you can keep your old bank and your normal banking systems up and running.
