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.
Cheques take time. They need to be printed, packed and posted. Once you’ve received your cheque, you’ll also need to pay it into your bank account and wait for the money to clear. Skip the hassle and enjoy your prizes the quickest way when you choose to have them paid directly to your bank account or reinvested into more Bonds.
Let us do the hard work for you. No more trips to the bank and one less thing on your to-do list – prizes paid directly to your bank account or reinvested into more Bonds means you don’t have to do anything!
Although it doesn’t happen often, there’s always a small chance of a cheque getting lost or delayed. We also know that sometimes our customers move house and forget to let us know their new address. Making the switch to safer prizes means there’s no chance of them going to the wrong address.
Paper sometimes gets a bad rap, but we know that it’s the planes, trains and automobiles used to transport paper cheques across the country that cause the biggest problems for the environment. Help us reduce the need to use polluting vehicles and you’ll be doing your part to keep our air cleaner and the planet greener.
