Premier Bond customers who want to check to see if they have won a prize can do so from Tuesday 4 August 2020 on the nsandi.com prize checker and the prize checker app.

Prize money paid into bank accounts

To increase the speed in which customers receive their prize winnings, NS&I is paying future prizes straight into winner’s bank accounts if they are registered for NS&I’s online service and have an email address or mobile phone number. To choose how their prize money is paid, customers should visit nsandi.com and click ‘Log in’, go to ‘Your profile’ and select ‘Your prize options’.

Commenting on the new way to receive the prize money, Jill Waters, retail director at NS&I’s Retail, said: “We appreciate that times are hard for people at the moment and we want to make things easier for our lucky Premium Bonds winners by having their prizes paid straight into their bank account. This is the quickest, easiest and most secure way to receive Premium Bonds prizes. In July’s prize draw, almost three-quarters of prize winners (72%) either had their prizes paid in this way, or reinvested into the next draw – increasing their chances of winning.

“Each £1 Bond has an equal chance of winning and the magic of Premium Bonds is that regular savings habits can lead to winning a life-changing sum of money. The minimum investment is now £25, which means that it is easier to save in Premium Bonds than ever before. The enduring appeal is the chance to be surprised and delighted by any of the three million plus tax-free prizes, including the two £1million jackpots.”
