    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!

    Mine has not yet (existing customer, switching into old account).

    Nothing for me yet, I've never had a NatWest account, and I've maintained a reasonable balance as I'm using it for the Rewards (made nearly 20 quid so far, with £9 payable).

    Mine has landed, last looked about 2.30 p.m.

    So that is a total of £176.20 inc reimbursement, (£31.20), & compensation, (£20.00).

    Just 20p left in now.

    Balance now zero again so all ready to close as I don't need a spare account.

    I was feeling decidedly left out and in fact, had my hand hovering over the phone in order to ring them and chase it up. (I know itís only the twelfth today, but still.....)

    Joy of joys, itís arrived - Hallelujah!!

    I'm keep checking this thread to make sure there are still others who haven't got theirs yet!


    I've re-read T&Cs and can't see how I've gone wrong, so fingers crossed it lands tomorrow.

    £250 arrived (me & the Wife), both accounts already in the switching process.

    Its NatWest's fault, they have nothing to entice me to stay. (Stayed with M&S because of the 5% Reg Saver)

    I switched to an already active NatWest account and have not received the £125 yet.

    Anyone else in the same position?

    Everything went super smoothly for me and I had nothing to worry about or to chase up. My £125 has been credited this afternoon.

    I've got two DDs on the account and some standing orders for regular savers. So I won't be part of the exodus! Not yet anyway
