    This thread has turned into the 'chatty Regular Saver thread' rather than just highlighting genuine new issues or changes.

    Let's hope it doesn't get marked as Spam and disappear again!

    Fingers crossed that wont happen.

    A good point made though about the comments, but it can still be a thread for changes when Special Saver is back online.

    It appears that it's no longer possible to get a card for the Flex Regular Saver account. I applied for it from outside online banking as I did last year (when I had a card) but the account I have been given is in the xxxx/xxxxxxxxx format rather than sort code and account number. Also, I can't find any mention of cards on the Flex Regular Saver page any longer.

    I will send them a secure message to ask for a card but I'm not hopeful.

    Are you mixing up the old Regular Savings with the Regular Saver which is a different product line. I had a card with a sort code and account no for my old Regular Savings account but all my previous Regular Saver accounts (since 2015) were in the format xxxx/xxxxxxxxx and no card

    No, the first Regular Saver I had with Nationwide was Jan 16. That one took the xxxx/xxxxxxxxx format as I opened it from online banking. During the period of holding that account, I found via MSE that a workaround to get a card was to apply from outside of online banking. I duly did this upon maturity in Jan 17 and my new account was in the sort code and account number format with a card issued.

    I've had an email to say there's a response to my secure message, so I'll update later when I have my card reader to hand. It may be that it's something that's quietly changed between issue 1 and issue 2, as that's the only thing that's different to last year.

    Edit: Their response has confirmed it's as I expected. Issue 1 did offer cards but Issue 2 doesn't have this facility.

    Ashen the £200 will be returned to the originating account from Saffron. I have done this before and it usually takes a couple of days.

    Also Issue 1 is up to 3.35% from 3.25%. The website doesn't give a date this is effective from and I received no notification from Ipswich BS.
