    Have now had the email like everyone else and qualify for the 0.3%. Has anybody else been flummoxed by the table showing the old/new rates though?
    In the old rates table, the AER is always more than the Gross. In the new rates table "with additional interest of 0.3%", the Gross is more than the AER, and those AER figures look plain wrong. Shouldn't the 0.3% be added to the basic AERs giving figures of 1.8% and 1.3% respectively? Have I lost the plot?

    My wife and I have each had e-ISA since 2009 and current account but have received nothing from NatWest to say that we get the extra 0.3%. I have spoken to NatWest today and no-one knows about the 'enhancement'.

    What is the official source of this information (if this extra interest does exist) and what precisely are the qualifying criteria, please?

    Unless I get positive news on this shortly, there will be two large balances seeking a new home.

    Me and hubby heard by letter on 16th Jan to say we'd qualified for the extra 0.3%. We have been current account holders for least 20 years and had out latest ISA's with them since about 2010/11.
