KBC Bank Ireland is hosting ‘Change Your Bank Day’ in its Eyre Square hub in Galway on this Saturday February 1. With many consumers re-assessing their personal finance arrangements early in the year and Danske customers researching alternative banking arrangements, KBC is opening for a full day on Saturday to offer greater flexibility to customers seeking to change banks.
‘Change Your Bank Day’ is an entire day dedicated to making it easy to change your bank. A team of KBC advisors will be on hand to handle questions on KBC’s full suite of retail banking products and services, and to assist new customers in making the seamless change over to KBC. Customers can compare the value for money of their current banking products to those on offer at KBC and advisors will be there to demonstrate how customers can bank with KBC for as little as €2 per month, or in other words, the price of a cup of coffee.
Those who wish to open an account are advised to bring the required account opening documentation so that their account can be opened on the day. This includes a photo ID, PPS number and proof of address eg a bank statement. The KBC Galway hub will be transformed on 1st February with lots of activities to make changing over easy and fun. Refreshments will be provided throughout the day and customers can be in with a chance of winning a range of prizes.
Discussing ‘Change Your Bank Day’, Dara Deering, Executive Director and Head of Retail Banking, KBC Bank Ireland said: “Change Your Bank Day is an entire day dedicated to those who want to review their personal finance requirements and discuss their options. By hosting the initiative on a Saturday we are providing a convenient platform away from the busy weekday period where customers can take more time to review what we offer and how it fits with their banking requirements.
“We have a dedicated team on hand to address any queries across our range of products, compare and contrast KBC’s offering with other providers’ products, and assist those who want to switch. We know that Danske customers in particular are concerned about the options available to them as the deadline for switching their existing current account is fast approaching and I’d encourage them to talk to us about what the Bank of You can offer.”
KBC opened its Galway retail banking hub in September 2013 and offers a full range of competitive retail banking products from current accounts and savings to mortgages and insurance.
KBC’s Eyre Square hub will remain open on ‘Change Your Bank Day’ from 9.00am to 5.30pm on Saturday February 1.
