You need to do an account transfer from another provider sorry I forgot to put that in there

There is also an offer where if you get referred by an existing account holder you (and they) get an extra £50. This does not impact on the quidco cashback. I have a nationwide account and have helped other HUKDers with this in the past.

I think it also applies to the free account as well as the £10 per month one. I have the £10 per month one, DW recently shut her phone in the car door, there was a £25 excess but the phone insurance paid out £205 for a 3 year old sony experia arc s

Cashback will only be paid out for new applications that are ‘accepted’ for a Nationwide FlexDirect account that are completed fully online.

Yep - kept posting, not seeing what I had posted and thus trying again - then like buses all three came along. Have now (hopefully) deleted the dups.

Nationwide have a great mobile app too.

£75 cashback and you must switch from another current account to qualify. I nearly went for it till I read the T&C.

Why what's up with the t&c's?? Trust me, Nationwide are head and shoulders more ethical and better service providers than ANYONE else

Nationwide are brilliant. I have my Flex Plus account and love it. The customer service from them is also excellent - hence why I've just got a mortgage through them. Would definitely recommend

This may sound silly, but can't you open a current account from say Natwest or Halifax, then switch it to Nationwide after?

We've got this account, paid up without any quibble on DD's phone that she dropped, plus the breakdown cover also now covers motorhomes, this alone has saved us the cost of the years charge. And they don't keep freezing our account and refusing to pay out when we make payments to anyone other than our usual payees, unlike TescoBank!

Is this better than Halifax? £100 once you transfer account and then £5 per month from them?

Santander's 123 has 3% interest up to £20000, £35 Quidco, cashback on household direct debits and lower (£2/month) charges. Depends on what people value!

Edited by: "BrianM" 26th Nov 2014

Do you have to pay a minumum amount in each month? As in i have a couple of current accounts one tied to a mortgage,,,, but would like to switch the other. There is only one direct debit on this account..not sure of all the criteria..

£80? I'm only seeing £75 on Quidco.

Was considering it but read "Cashback will only be paid to customers who are accepted for a FlexPlus account and who switch to Nationwide from a non-Nationwide current account using their Current Account Switch Service"

No existing customer loyalty bonus

I found that the 5% interest on balances from £1000-£2500 on the nationwide account was better for me than the 3% on up to £20000 on the Santander 123 account, it depends how much cash you have in your current account.
Also nationwide deal is for 1 yr only so I'm prepared to switch again to make £200 (£125 +£75 Cashback at the time)
Use the Santander 123 calculator to see what's best

Great value account for us - travel insurance, breakdown cover (pan Europe), mobile cover, extra 1yr warranty on purchases - all for £10p.m. very happy and would recommend.

Customer service is good too.

Have to pay in £1000 per month see moneysavingexpert.com/ban…nts for all the current deals but don't forget quidco or TopCashback for Cashback on your switch

Does the breakdown cover cover parts and labour etc?

Have this account. It's good value for what it provides. But for those who say that Nationwide offer good customer service, I'm afraid that was the old days.

They are dire now.

FlexPlus (£10 a month fee): http://www.quidco.com/nationwide-flexplus-current-account/
FlexDirect (5% for 12 months up to £2500, pay in £1000 month, no monthly fee): http://www.quidco.com/nationwide-flexdirect-current-account/?ac

Both currently showing £75 quidco.

Nope. It's just standard breakdown cover if they cannot get your car started at the roadside they drop it at a garage of your choice and that's that

No. That's the Flex Direct account. There are no funding requirements for the Flex Plus.

Could you explain what qualifies one as a "main" account and another not please?

If the balance goes above £2500 on a particular day, do you still get the 5% interest?.

Is it gross or net?

Main generally means you pay your salary into it but you can meet the funding requirements in other ways. You have to transfer over existing DD, etc and close the account that you are transferring from down.

Its 5% gross.

If you have 3k in there then you get interest on the first £2500, nothing on additional £500.

Damn, just opened a flex direct account last week

They messed me around when I 'switched' to the Halifax once by not closing down my DD's and SO's properly, which became duplicated across both accounts and resulted in me going overdrawn.

They make things awkward as well. For example If i wanted to set up a SO from my Co-op account all I need to do is make a quick call to CS. However when I tried ringing Nationwide I was told they're incapable of setting up SO's over the phone and insisted I had to come into the branch. Which in this day and age is not very efficient service.

Granted they have better ethics than most but they really need to brush up the CS.

So Nationwide are now charging for a product, much of which used to be free at Nationwide, and you are all thinking that is good value.

Trust me, I have Nationwide Accounts, ( as well as other accounts elsewhere ) their service is fairly dire.

This might be the cheapest way to get my LCD fixed on my S4!!

had to make a mobile insurance claim just 3 days after switching from the old NatWest silver account. claim went through without query in 48 hours.

car insurance does not cover small vans

I reckon you have to have your salary paid in and have some direct debits for the switch...It was mentioned earlier you need to pay in 1000 a month.

My second current account is a hangover from a previous bank..I have one direct debit on it servicing my travel abroad 0% rate credit card and has no regular pay ins as such..eg not my main account a such

The FlexAccount is still available and free.

FlexDirect and FlexPlus are different products.
