The FlexDirect account could be right for you if you're after an account that pays you interest when you have money in your account and you prefer to do your banking online or over the phone. It also has a really simple set of overdraft fees. To benefit from in-credit interest, you'll need to pay in a minimum of £1,000 per calendar month (excluding transfers from any Nationwide account held by you or anyone else).

FlexDirect is based on a simple self-service concept – you'll be automatically registered for our online and telephone banking services to manage your account. If you ever have a transaction that can't be completed via our self-service options then our branches and UK call centres will be here for you.

FlexDirect also comes with...
Free mobile banking
Secure Online Banking
Paperless statements
Free text alerts
Contactless
Apple Pay*
Android Pay*
Access to offers
Simply Rewards
Up to £500 ATM
Branch access
Joint account
Telephone banking
Cheque book

Got to be worth it if you're looking for a change

Hardly a deal as this has been the case for over a year

do you have to switch with this or can you just open up an account? i tried looking the answer up in the terms but couldn't see anything specific.

Dont need to switch, can open a new account

There is a flex regular saver account linked to this one that allows you to transfer £500 across each month and again it's 5% but the account only lasts 12 months but you can start it over again when the year is up.

I have this and the flex regular saver.
Pays interest, 'free' money, whats not to like about this one.

Nationwide haven't been late or wrong in giving me the interest, I haven't been paying in late either.
100% protected my the government, basically risk free return.

Its the same. Its linking to exactly the same page on the Nationwide website.

Yeah you can also open their regular saver, up to 500£ a month, 5% interest additional.

Anything to stop the opening of multiple accounts?

Isn't this the same account they've been doing for years?

Does the £500 have to come from your flexdirect account or can it come from a different bank? TIA

Has to come from a different account, in-account transfers don't count.

Don't forget, if someone already with nationwide recommends you and you switch to this account you get £100 each.

For folks looking for hot deals, I'm surprised all of you aren't keeping an eye out on moneysavingexpert / moneysupermarket for the best rates? Why this 'deal' should get hot given it's been on the market for years puzzles me...

Why do you, and so many others, have a personal vendetta against posts like this!? The OP is posting it here to draw attention to a bank account where customers can gain a decent amount of interest for minimal input/effort. Just because it's posted elsewhere, or was posted here previously, doesn't matter. A lot of us are here to help each other out, others it seems, are here just to take umbrage!

Can anyone confirm? As far as I can see no need for any compulsory direct debits required for this account?

Nope, no direct debits required, just pay in £1000 each month, I transfer in £1k from my main account and then straight back out again the same day to meet the requirements

Correct.

I have one of these. Works as intended.

If you have a FlexPlus account (as I do also), note there are no minimum pay in requirements either.

Worth notIng; Flex Saver is also useful- but pays interest on maturity (unlike this current account which pays it monthly)

lmao when i see you throwing your toys out of your pram! its a website mate get over it! I typed in nationwide and came up with just mine then when i put nationwide building society in it come up with your deal!

But looks like your deal is a repost as well my friend check this out http://www.hotukdeals.com/deals/nationwide-flexdirect-current-account-5-2553320

So why you reposting then? Maybe yours should be deleted too! People forget about deals so if its active its worth posting again every so often as i tend to look at whats current not whats been posted about 5 months ago!

This looks great, going to sign up. If someone want to recommend would be great

by the time you get the 5%, everything has gone above 6% 0r more by than.


Been with Nationwide for 3 years now , switched from RBS , great customer service and offer fairly decent interest rates compared to others

​You know you have to use the switch service and close your current account to this and carry over 2 direct debits right? If you do I'm happy to recommend and gain £100 each ,PM me if you want to

​For £12.50 per month? CBA personally with anything like this.

If you can spare a few minutes for typing in comments like that then instead use those few minutes to get yourself some interest on your cash.

I actually got more enjoyment from typing that, than I could from £12.50.

I can definitely make better use of £2,500 than leaving it in a Nationwide account for a year to earn a pittance.

I have the Flex Direct account and the regular saver. I transfer £500 per month into the regular saver from my flex direct account, or sometimes from one of my other Nationwide accounts.

I have a Flex diect and a flexaccount with Nationwide, I have already had one years worth of interest does anyone know if there is there any way that I can get 5% again with this account or can I just open another flexdirect account?

I have had a flex account for at least ten years, do they owe me cash or what ?

Don't forget Nationwide give £100 if you can find someone to refer you. I've recommended loads of my friends and they always pay out. Let me know if you need any help

I have this account, and after a year it will drop to a % I was told you need to have had this account close for a year, to get 5% again. So you would just need to switch the account over to one that gives you free travel insurance for a year, and then switch back to 5% paying one, the year after. Can anyone confirm that?

Well go ahead and post your deals for earning more than 5% on £2.5k from doing absolutely nothing. Other than investing (which isn't guaranteed and takes time and effort) I can't see how you would beat this?

Better than it sat earning nothing...
