Satisfied Switchers

I had delayed switching for a long time, thinking it would be too much hassle; but the end of a particular deal with my old bank prompted me to make the effort. It was a very good decision. Not only was the switching process quick and hassle-free, I was able to secure a much better deal with my new bank.
