    Oh so we know now where interest cut is coming from. Needed to sponsor text message service :D

    "Jill Waters, retail director at NS&I, said: "With technology evolving at an ever rapid pace, it’s important that we continue to listen to customer feedback and innovate our products and the way we communicate with our customers." while lowering interest of their product. :#

    Wow.  The year is 2020 and we're supposed to get excited about receiving an automated text message.

    Isn't an email sufficient notification?

    I use the mobile app which says exactly how much has been won (if anything). Got two accounts on it as I have POA for DM.

    This might be either fun or mundane for the folks with maximum holding, but some of us will have changed phone numbers between each win and forgotten to update the NS&I account.

    I've created an Alexa skill which will send you a notification at a time of your choosing on prize draw day.  The notification will tell you if you've won or not.  You can then use the Alexa device to find out the value of any winnings.

    I know there is an official NS&I Alexa skill but theirs doesn't have the capability to send a notification to the device letting you know if you've won.
