    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!

    Worked a treat.

    Mchambers post has now gone.

    Can I suggest marking Mchambers posts as Spam is far easier than responding and makes the threads far better to read when they are removed.

    I had been checking this most days, however forgot yesterday. This thread gave me inspiration to check it now and I was pleasantly surprised to notice that I had been paid the incentive.

    I like many on here were beginning to think that I was going to the very last one to be paid.

    My Brothers wedding this weekend so it will pay for a couple of drinks at least. Thankyou Natwest

    Anyone got the T's and C's handy, whats the limit on time to stay after the incentive is paid?

    I've bought a nice new phone and thought I'd move to Nationwide packaged account to cover the phone insurance costs. Along with the rest of the stuff they give!

    There's quite a few of us in the same boat, and it's clear that Natwest are processing the payments one at a time.

    The money is promised by the 13th. That gives them until midnight on Friday.

    They obviously have huge numbers of transactions to process, and started early in the week to get them done on time.

    Just be patient.

    Got mine too, yippee. 250 in hand for doing very little. Not bad at all.

    Could they be paying the bonus in order of the balance in the account, the higher the earlier? I haven't received mine yet, only have 1p in the account.
