Just a point to you all with spread betting accounts, I often get a phone call from my account manager, anyway recently I got a call and after a brief chat on the markets…etc, I mentioned one thing i didn’t get was a joining bonus, she said ok I’ll look at that and 5 minutes after our chat 100 quid was credited to my account, just goes to show if you don’t ask you don’t get, also got a bottle of bollinger from Spreadex at xmas, when they phoned and asked me why my account had been inactive for a few weeks. Remember it’s a competitive field so make sure they comp you something!
