icount to refund £4.95 activation fee! PDF Print E-mail
Monday, 04 July 2016
New icount Money customers will see their activation fee of £4.95 refunded if they put £20 or more onto their account within 30 days of opening their monthly fee account (£9.95 per month).  Icount hopes to make it as easy as possible for Secure Trust’s thousands of customers, whose prepaid current account is to be closed from 12 September 2016, to find a new home. 

icount CEO Samuel Mond said, “It’s important that Secure Trust customers and others have the easiest route to their own account again, and one that gives great value without the need of resorting to a high street bank. Confidence in mainstream accounts is at an all-time low and, in the interest of fairness, we have decided to open this offer to anyone taking out one of our Pay Monthly accounts by 30 September 2016.”

icount works with Advanced Payment Solutions Ltd (APS), which has quickly become a challenger to banks for consumers looking for a viable alternative to the high street. The popular e-money account provider was first launched in 2009 to help customers who had been turned away from the high street. Samuel is a strong believer that everyone should be able to have their own account and one that could help to build financial capability.

icount customers enjoy much of the same functionality of a high street bank account, without the need to pass credit checks. Furthermore, additional facilities offered include real time cash loading at any UK Post Office branch as well as purchase protection and the ability to have up to 4 additional cardholders.
