Found 16th Dec 2017
If you’re a Nationwide member you can earn up to £500 per tax year by recommending five friends. That’s £100 per friend, when they switch to us.

You’re a member when you have a current account, mortgage or savings account with us.

I can't swap. Got no friends. Thinking of changing my name to Billy
I’ve been with nationwide for years, always found them great. When my wife was diagnosed with cancer and I paid off the mortgage, they waived the ERC of a few grand. They were so lovely when she passed away.

Good bank, referral has worked well for a couple of friends.
Used this a couple of times earlier this year. Received the money pretty promptly.
i would certainly turn away anyone who even thought about apporaching me, on the pretext of trading flamedeer...

ust sayin'

This is how I joined - trying to get the other half to swap now but she likes her interest free overdraft (that she never uses!)

No issues at all - process is a little odd, but not difficult.
I’m with Nationwide. Their switch service is super easy, fast, and the £100 was much welcomed!

Sorry, why does this get posted over and over and over and over again?
I went into the bank to cancel my flex plus yesterday, they told me to open another account and get anyone to refer me ( anyone in the bank) not staff. Really good idea and she even told me how to approach them
As good as free money this. Had a friend refer me earlier this year getting him and me £100 each. Then once my account was open I referred my other half so then we each got £100.

£300 just for opening two accounts. Opened Flex Direct accounts so also getting 5% interest on both for a year.
Been a member for a couple of years now , switched from RBS and haven't looked back since

Done this several times - always pay out, never had any issues
Why is it so bad to ask for referrals in this thread? If people want to make money for themselves in this way how is it hurting the site? I'm not interested in moving to them but I just thought it odd that it was prohibited.
Excellent bank. Highly recommended. Awesome customer service. Beats the other big banks. Santander are the worst bank ever.

Good bank, awful TV adverts though.

That's probably because Nationwide aren't a bank.

I'm very happy to be a customer.

Have done this myself recently and all paid swiftly . I signed the wife up to it as well and I was her friend, easy money. By the way I am very friendly.
I've been with Nationwide since I was child and stayed with them ever since (25+ years) and have several different products with them. Never been able to fault them. I've referred a couple of people previously and as long as you follow the instructions/meet the terms it's really straight forward and simple and the cash has been paid promptly each time
Yep changed to the flex plus account from Natworst
and got the £200, £100 each easy transation
Great switching incentive if you don’t already have a nationwide account or know someone who doesn’t. I’m going to ask friends if they want me to refer them.
I opened an account here just before the 30% monthly fee price hike and removal of the extended warranty benefit. Then they promote this where we can recoup that by looking for customers for them. Not impressed.

Seems many people still haven't heard of this. And the T&C have changed significantly, as has the process.
Just beward of the T&C's - I recommended my DH but he didn't have any direct debits to transfer so Nationwide didn't pay out

It's fairly standard for most bank switching incentives to require you to have existing direct debits on the account you're moving over, this offer included.

Most bills can be set up as direct debits so most people should be able to manage the 2 required for this offer. TV licence, mobile contacts, energy providers, water bill, credit card minimum/full monthly payments are a few examples.

Failing that you can set up monthly charity direct debits through just giving.

Either way make sure they're actually showing as set up on your old account before starting the switch process. Usually takes a few days for any you set up to show in your online banking
I recommended a friend about 5 months ago and it all went through fairly quickly for them. I'm not sure what's changed in the T&Cs butit shouldn't be an issue if you follow them

+1! With anything like this, you really have to save a copy of the T&C, read them and understand and comply with them!
Cannot fault this bank. Owned by its members, has all the perks and great customer service and mortgages rates
I got recommended a few months ago, and have even been able to make a couple of referrals myself. It's literally free money Nationwide are a great bank too.

Only thing is it's not always easy to find people to give referral links to. I still have a couple left but nobody seems to want one.
