Banks seek to attract new customers. Banco Santander thus joins this race and launches its own ‘Plan Amigo’ this week of July. This new program is intended for individuals and the self-employed and gives bonuses of up to 500 euros for attracting new customers to the entity.
Through this plan, any individual client over the age of 18 may invite a maximum of ten friends or acquaintances to open an account and direct deposit a salary, pension or recurring income for a minimum amount of 600 euros.
A bonus of up to 500 euros
For each of these new incorporations, the client who acts as ‘sponsor’ will receive a bonus of 50 euros gross and the new client another of 150 euros or 350 euros gross in the event that the payroll, pension or recurring income is a minimum of 2,500 euros per month.
The client may invite their friends or relatives who are not bank clients to open a Santander Account Santander Online Account Collective Account Justice Account Universities Account or Private Banking Account, since they direct deposit their income for 24 months.
The sponsor customer will receive the bonus for a friend or family member when the latter has met the registration requirements as a new customer and direct debit of income, the month after both are verified. For their part, the sponsored client will receive their bonus, once the first ten days of the first month have elapsed, once the bank has verified the direct debit of the payroll, pension or recurring income.
In this way, existing customers or new customers who deposit their self-employed contribution to Social Security in a Santander account and who have a minimum annual income of 12,000 euros, will receive a bonus of 150 euros gross. In this sense, the Friend Plan works in the same way and a sponsored person or new self-employed client who deposits their quota in Santander will make her sponsor receive a bonus of 50 euros gross.
Valid until the end of September
This campaign, which will be in force until September 30, can be carried out in person at the bank’s branch network or digitally, through the app or the website. To do this, customers have to sign up for the Friend Plan, with which they will obtain their sponsor code, which they will have to share with their friends, family or acquaintances who are going to open an account with Santander.
During the first quarter of this year, Santander continued to increase its customer base, with an increase of 736,000 in the last 12 months, for which net deposits chained its nineteenth consecutive month of growth. Active customers registered an interannual increase of 354,000 and are already close to eight million.
