A better way to get your prizes

Still receive Premium Bonds prizes by cheque? Here's why you should make the switch.

We already pay 9 in 10 prizes either straight to customers’ bank accounts or by reinvesting into more Bonds. If you still receive Premium Bonds prizes as a cheque in the post, why not switch to a better way?

You can have prizes paid straight to your bank account (or NS&I Direct Saver) or reinvested into more Bonds, giving you even more chances to win. Choose either of these options and we’ll let you know by text or email if you win.
