first direct and NatWest have launched switching deals that will see consumers earn £100 or more in cashback when switching bank accounts.

From today, consumers who switch to a first direct 1st Account will be able to earn £100 in cashback if they switch using the Current Account Switching Service (CASS) and credit at least £1,000 into the account each month for the first three months*. 1st Account does not charge any monthly fees and has an interest-free buffer on overdrafts of £250. Customers who borrow more than this through their overdraft will be charged 39.90% EAR variable.

NatWest has also launched a switching offer which sees new and existing customers earn £150 if they switch and stay to a Select or Reward account. This switching offer is due to end on 2 December 2021. To be eligible for the cashback incentive customers must switch using CASS, as well as pay £1,500 into the account and log into online or mobile banking through the NatWest mobile app before 13 January 2022*. If all conditions are met, customers will have £100 credit in their bank account by 11 February 2022, and an additional credit of £50 will be made if 10 debit or credit transactions are made per calendar month between 1 January 2022 to 30 September 2022.

The NatWest Select account does not charge a monthly fee or monthly funding. However, those considering a Reward account should be aware that these accounts charge a fee and require a minimum amount of funding per month. In return, the reward accounts offer a range of benefits, including earning cashback, vouchers or donation to charity through accumulating reward points. More information about these accounts can be found on our bank account comparison chart.
