    NatWest £125 switch incentive

    NatWest £125 switch incentive 10th Jan 18 at 1:56 PM
    Just as I thought I'd exhausted every bank...up pops NatWest with a switch offer! £125 for switching, and no direct debits required. All you need to do is:
    • switch a non-NatWest account
    • deposit £1,500
    • log into online or mobile banking
    All before 16 March (although you need to apply for the account by 16 February).


    Happy days!

    ToToMan, I received the same message and email aswel. Not sure what is the reason because when I submitted application it did approved.

    Is it ok to switch an RBS account? I couldnt see anything on the terms and conditions.

    I received the same. Called them, you have to wait for the pack where they ask you to sign the document (as they want a copy of your signature) and send it back. Once done they will open the account.

    Spoke too soon! may be that no docs required - I will hear from them in 3-5 days
    Never had a bean from them for all the years and years I banked there- hopefully a payout finally!

    OK thanks. I just applied for my NW Reward there and it all went through ok after being prompted to enter Credit Card and Driver's Licence details. I can only think my wife must have got one of her security/financial details wrong on her NW Select application?

    Applied and got the same ďweíll send you a pack of paperĒ message. No email, (although when checking my junk I discovered my emails from Nationwide about my B account switch are going in there!).

    Wonder why they just donít email you the pack and you print it off?

    Iím binning the Lloyds club for this, never use the cinema tickets and I was thinking of closing anyway as I moved the DDs away for something else so donít get interest.

    After an easy peasy success yesterday, I tried to open a Select Ac online last night for OH.

    It didn't go through the same process as mine did in office hours... didn't have the digi ID check... didn't have the addy from post code - had to input it longhand... didn't get the full list of jobs drop down etc.

    Most importantly didn't get email saying you've been accepted.

    So had another go this am and it sailed through.. as mine did yesterday. So if you get issues late on, maybe leave it until their working hours 07:30 to 20:00 (think).

    I suspect after 10pm some support is taken down...

    I really don't want to add to my collection.

    Is the card reader same as Ulster bank/Tesco/Nationwide?

    Well meant I know but I'll hang on a few days in case I receive something before I do anything.

    I know the offer may have disappeared in that time but I'd rather not (potentially) take a(nother) hit on my credit file.

    Even though nothing further than being accepted I see on viewing one of my Nationwide accounts the switch away from them started yesterday. So assume they are happy with everything after NW doing their final checks.

    Okay, so during the application they ask for my income and for the cost of my mortgage.

    My income is £0 and my mortgage is £1100pm. My husband is the sole earner in our household.

    Is that going to be an automatic fail? Shall I put the £190pm I get for Child Benefit (even though we pay it back)? Shall I put household income? Shall I put £0 for the mortgage?

    If your income is zero how are you going to be able to pay in 1,500 to qualify for the bonus. Also do not be tempted to fabricate the truth. If I were you ring them on their free phone number to get clarification on any points you are not clear on.

    Best of luck!

    Has anyone doing an existing customer switch received any kind of communication?

    I did it last night at about 7pm (so after the close of banking hours) and got to a confirmation screen, and took a screenshot of it, but have not had any kind of text or e-mail.
