Powering Premium Bonds through voice technology

This is a fun interactive way of finding out if you are one of our many lucky winners every month.

ERNIE’s looking (and for the first time ever, sounding) a little different. The past year has been a very exciting time for ERNIE’s upgrade. We’re not talking just a haircut and splash of make-up.

For the first time, through Alexa, Premium Bonds has a voice. It can now tell you:

  • whether or not you have won a prize each month;
  • how much;
  • when the next prize draw is; and
  • if you have any unclaimed prizes.

This is a fun interactive way of finding out if you or your family are one of our many lucky winners every month.

Sound like your cup of tea? Here’s how to get started:

To get started just open the Skill on the Alexa app and follow the steps.

You’ll need your NS&I number or holder’s number, if it’s for a child we’ll need their holder’s number.

You can add up to 10 NS&I numbers or holders numbers. To make it easier for you when checking each month, you’ll get the opportunity to choose a nickname for each one. That way you won’t need to remember all the NS&I numbers or holder's numbers.

Voice apps terms of use.

If you have won a Premium Bonds prize we'd love to hear from you
