For how many months does the 2x direct debits have to be paid out for? Can I open a donor account, have 2 DD, then switch and wait until I get the money? How long does it take to be credited? Thanks in aadvanc


You continue to behave as cheap_as_chimps.


You're begging for another cold vote :p


I had a similar experience - a friend recommended Nationwide. Neither of us got any money. I complained and was told I had quoted the wrong number when I signed up. Complained twice more and was told each time nothing could be done. Raised a formal complaint following their own procedures (the last step before complaining to the ombudsman) and was told it could be fixed - was told we would both be paid the £100 and an extra £75 compensation. Eventually we both got the £100 (it took about 6 months of complaining but their dismissive attitude had annoyed me). Never saw the £75 compensation (I'd lost the will to fight them anymore). What I learnt from it is that if Nationwide make a mistake their default position is "tough - that's our policy". Also they're incompetent. It's left me pretty unimpressed. I'm thinking of leaving again.


@jraf used the preposition "as", not the verb "to be", @jraf is correct, you are wrong, see my grammatical explanation above. He never claimed Nationwide "is" , he wrote "as". That's the difference.

Just a quick reminder (as it looks like some people forgot - or didn't see the massive flipping CAPITAL LETTERS in the deal title ;) ), no referral offers or requests, please. Ta.


Can also recommend Nationwide. Worth highlighting their Visa offers page here which you can gain access to once joined:


Do you get £100 for switching or is it just for recommending a friend?


I can also recommend Nationwide. Their app is simple to use but secure and have always found them to offer great savings deals periodically to existing customers. I've not referred anyone this year as yet...


Awesome deal OP I always take advantage of the switch. Do you know when this expires by any chance?

Do you look "dodgy"??


Same issue that the verify by visa seems to stop everything when using over internet meaning having to phone in. I think it has something to do with nationwide having no password option available yet other visa cards you have from other suppliets requiring them to be used. Looks like visa profile all your cards against a single profile, so maybe a coding error somewhere causes this. Nationwide have no idea why but it's infuriating.


Also have this card but never knew it was fee free abroad! (embarrassed) Been using my Halifax Clarity card for that. At least i have a choice of the 2 now. Never had a problem with this card either i might add.


i have this card and have had the same problem as many others have reported, i tried to pay for a rental car over the phone and it was declined so ended up having to use another credit card. a couple of minutes later i received a text asking if i had tried making a transaction by which time it was way to late.


They have been hoping I'll swap my Nationwide gold credit card to this one. The gold card product was discontinued in 2012, but still they keep providing the card.

Similar offer, this time for HSBC customers but worth checking your Visa rewards page if a Nationwide of First Direct customer -


Let me guess... 20% if you never/rarely buy in Starbucks cos you appreciate a good coffee and Starbucks isn't hitting the mark. I'm obviously in this category. 10% if you have bought stuff in Starbucks but according to your 'data profile' you need to buy more terrible coffee. 0% if you're already suckered in to loving their terrible coffee and you don't need a discount cos you're going to buy it anyway. :p

You can get capital protected investments in an ISA wrapper that expose you to inflation risk but remove capital risk and opportunity for growth, income or a mix. So not that silly. You may of course ultimately not benefit but that’s where risk appetite comes into play. They are fairly low to medium risk though


If you pick a cautious fund that would not happen classic scaremongering regarding investing!


But your investment could quite easily lose 20-50% or even more?


With inflation at around 3% you are losing money in real terms getting 1.4% in a cash ISA so yours is a silly comment :o


You can have a Cash ISA with one provider and a Stocks and Shares (Investment ISA) with a different provider up to £20K in total each tax year . I split mine so say half in a steady safe Cash ISA and half in a Fund supermarket ISA (Fidelity in my case ) - historically greater growth over a more than 3 year period but also an element of risk .

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.


Cannot fault this bank. Owned by its members, has all the perks and great customer service and mortgages rates


+1! With anything like this, you really have to save a copy of the T&C, read them and understand and comply with them!


Turns out I had a few friends with this account after all. Thanks to all.


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 :)

Need a friend? Haha


I think so and I don't see why not , are you switching a joint account?


does the recommend a friend work if I want to open a joint account?


I switched my TSB account to this not long ago and me and my friend got £100 each as he was the recommend a friend. Then a month later I have just switched my wife’s account from TSB and we both got £100 each, I recommended her, easy switch and money. If you switch for the £100 recommend you have to have 2 direct debits set up on that account. If you don't know anyone with a nationwide account just shout easy £100 each.

You're right, I've just re-read properly and see that the offer is for any tracker. It's just the lifetime BMR that needs more careful consideration, but even that may be worth it. Though there's something nice about being free for life from periodic remortgaging.


I did this switch about 3 years back. Currently paying 1.37%. Sure it will go up by 0.25% shortly but still less than I was paying before. It's been a great few years for mortgage interest rates.


Switching to a Nationwide fixed may also limit the overpayments you can make to 10% of the amount you borrowed. 1st world problems and all that, but it might stop it being a no-brainer for some people.


it might be at trap for legacy products taken ages ago, forgive my ignorance but i have not heard about BMR rates and products, but not for someone on a tracker deal taken 2 years ago...


It's a trap. They've been itching to get people off their legacy BMR product for years. Rates may edge up another 0.5% in the next 3 years if BoE guidance is correct ... but with Brexit etc there's every chance they'll edge down again as part of a natural economic cycle. 5% - 10% base rates are no longer the "normal" level. Luckily I have a Woolwich lifetime tracker now running at half a percent below the Nationwide BMR, so it's an easier call for me to stay put. I agree NW is less clear cut but would still be inclined to stay on the BMR.

I do not need to claim the moral high ground as that is a given. When people like you think sexual abuse comments can be witty and then try to weasel away from what you have said just proves how truly worthless your comments are.


You know you were being needlessly rude, just leave it at that and don't try to pick a fight by claiming the moral high ground.


Those are the police stats, 48 reported alleged attacks by uber drivers in London between Feb 2016 to Feb 2017. Expect that to be highly increased if you were to get the whole of the uk stats. you seem to be taking this kinda personal, would you care to explain your reaction to my flippant comment?


Your version and most peoples vary massively as to what witty is. I do not find comments about sex offenders witty in any way shape or form!


£8 off apparently cold, maybe £8 on top of the fare would suit you

Nationwide Flex Direct Current Account Pays 5% interest on balances up to £2500
Found 10th Aug 2017Found 10th Aug 2017
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… Read more

The problem with the regular saver £500/£250 month is that you actually only get 5% interest on the first month's installment. Every month after that the next installments are there for 1/12 of the year less, so you'll only make 11/12 of 5% on the second £500, 10/12 of 5% on the 3rd £500 and so on. So eventually it actually works out around 2.5% which isn't that great. Although, not bad if having the initial capital is a struggle and you prefer to work with cashflow. The real benefit of flex direct, and the reason why it is so much better than any current regular savings account is that you do receive a full 5% on a full £2500. It's not watered down in any way, and it's better than most other savings accounts right now.


Still one of the better bank account offers and the refer bonus to switch is just a nice £100 bonus.


Cool. Could you transfer from PayPal the £1000 each month? And what happens if you forget to transfer £1000?


Can recommend for £100 incentive


folks, if this deal is news to you please go check out moneysavingexpert. This has been around for years, and is their standard product. It's like posting a deal for RRP of something.


BTL is the reason first time buyers can't afford anything! Money goes to money...

These are buy to let mortgages, completely different to residential.

A week and 2 days and i am down to 4,000 places. I started on 26,000 on the list.


Unbelievable. Nope Labour is the students vote by default.


Didn't you read today that a student was complaining about being £69k in debt? It was laughable. This moron actually made the national news. She's clearly very stupid with bad grades because she only got into Westminster University (terrible, one of the worst). Started off doing fecking TV production and then moved to PR, it's beggars belief. These imbeciles are going to university, taking on debt and then somehow get picked up by the national news. Judging by her size she has clearly drank and eaten every penny of the maintenance loan. This is why normal hardworking people shouldn't vote for labour. They support this.


Or you can use a Halifax clarity card, cash withdrawals are free. Just make sure you pay some money into your account first, or you will pay an interest charge until you pay it off


Or just open a Starling account. Similar to Monzo but with a proper current account, and no minimum deposit requirement

It changed earlier this month for new accounts. If you already have a regular saver then it will still be upto £500 per month.


Regular saver is only £250 now! Must of changed it


Here's how you can get £100 when you switch to a Nationwide current account. Open one of our current accounts You'll need to open one of our FlexAccount, FlexDirect or FlexPlus current accounts. If you already have a Nationwide current account that isn't your main one, you can still earn £100 by switching your main current account with another provider to us (at least two Direct Debits need to be switched as part of this process). Switch your existing account to us Then switch to us. The process is easy, thanks to the Current Account Switch Service, which takes seven working days. Many providers are signed up to the service. If they aren't, you can still apply manually on our site. Enter your switch code Once you start the switch, you'll be given a switch code. Enter this code below. This is how we make sure you and your friend get £100 each, so save the email you were sent (or bookmark this page) so you can come back and add your switch code. If you switched manually and don't have a code, visit our FAQ page.

The image above is my account. This is why I posted it this offer. Unfortunately my powers do not extend to knowing what each and every person in the Nationwide Rewards Scheme has in their account. With the post at 392 heat though this would point out that of the 10 people above (that commented and no doubt left negative heat with their feedback) there must have been over 250 - 300 people (that voted) that have the offer.
