    it;s not new customers only. i have an account with them but I've set up a dd to WWF on one of my other accounts. hey presto, i am a switcher and can have £50! woo!

    Did this definitely work?

    I.e.- do you have the £50 credit to show for it?!

    Just found an old account that I don't use... Anyone know any quick payments that I could set up to take advantage of this offer? What about if I set up a SO from my account to my girlfriends each month for £100 and then vice versa from her account to mine....

    Does it need to be a specific number of payments or for a certain value?

    I just set up a DD for a magazine subscription - 3 for £1 then cancel afterwards.

    Will transfer that across once it appears in my other account and hope for the best!

    Hi guys, I too am a loyal Nationwide customer and have used them as my main account for a long time now.... i'm peeved off that as I don't have an account elsewhere and because I do actually use Nationwide as my main account, that I won't get sweet FA.

    However people who took the account just to use the "free withdrawals" will now get £50 too and surely those people are the same ones that will next move their account again when they get the £50.


    Moral of story? Bank loyalty does not pay!:beer:

    That is my intention (not to pay your gf £100 a month, you understand ;)). I believe that falls inside the Ts & Cs
    6. To be eligible for the offer, if you are a qualifying customer, you must sign on to the Nationwide Internet Bank and complete and submit an "Authorisation for a Current Account Transfer" form within the Internet Bank to transfer all your Direct Debits, standing orders and Bill Payment mandates from an account with another bank or building society to a qualifying FlexAccount by selecting ‘Transfer all my payments for me’. If you choose ‘Send me a list and let me choose’ you will not qualify for this offer.
    If all is limited to one, then all it is. :T

    Nationwide is my main account but I have a little £3 per month RSPCA DD still going from my old Barclays account which I've been meaning to switch for ages anyway, so fingers crossed I qualify!

    I have a nationwide flex account with debit card already. Do I have to transfer all my standing orders / direct debits? or can I just transfer some? Thanks!

    And in post 26, only two posts above the question. Why do we bother? :confused:
