    natiowide refer a friend 15th Mar 17 at 7:41 PM
    My wife currently has a nationwide current account and I am thinking of moving my current account from santander to the flexplus account for the benefits. The thing is i already have other accounts with the nationwide. So my question is does anyone know if we would still be eligible for the refer a friend bonus.

    Yes, as long as you've not had the incentive before.
    There are 24 bottles of beer in a crate. There are 24 hours in a day. Coincidence? I think not....

    In the FAQ's it states that "YES If your friend has a Nationwide current account but they use an account held with another provider as their main transactional account (for example having their salary paid in or bills paid from), they can complete a full Current Account Switch, transferring at least 2 Direct Debits across to us (the Direct Debits must be transferred as part of the switch, not transferred afterwards)".

    So as long as you have never received the incentive before and you don't hold more than 3 Nationwide current accounts already then you should be entitled to the £200.

    I don't actually see anything in the terms and conditions that explicitly says you cannot receive the £100 if you have received a switching incentive before? Merely you only get one incentive payment even if you switch more than one account following your recommendation?

    'The recommended friend will only be entitled to receive one payment for being recommended even if they switch more than one account to us or are recommended by more than one person.'

    It does say this in relation to already having a NW current account.

    'If your friend has a Nationwide current account but they use an account held with another provider as their main transactional account (for example having their salary paid in or bills paid from), they can complete a full Current Account Switch, transferring at least 2 Direct Debits across to us (the Direct Debits must be transferred as part of the switch, not transferred afterwards)'
