NatWest switch deal update

NatWest’s £200 switching offer has now ended. The information below is for reference only. For switching deals available now, make sure to check out our switching deals guide.

A new £200 switching bonus from NatWest and RBS launched on 15 February 2024. Here’s how to get the money, plus extra. For a full list of switching deals on the market, you can visit our switching deals guide.

How much can I get with NatWest’s switch deal?

You get £200 within 7 days of meeting the eligibility criteria listed below. Once you switch, you can also access the Digital Regular Saver at 6.17% AER (variable) on balances up to £5,000. If you save the maximum amount of £150 a month into the savings account, you’ll have £59.83 in interest after a year.

If you choose the Reward Account, you can get £5 a month extra – £4 for having 2 monthly direct debits worth over £2 and a further £1 for logging in to the mobile banking app once during the month. By doing so, you can earn an additional £36 per year after accounting for the Reward Account’s £2 monthly fee.

That’s £295.83 in your first year, including switching bonus, maximum savings interest and monthly rewards.

Who can get the deal?

New and existing NatWest customers can get it – one bonus per person (or one payment per joint account).

Finder scores, in blue, are based on our expert analysis. We also show reviews from users, where we've received more than 10, with a score in yellow. We gather more reviews from customers every year in Finder's customer satisfaction survey.

To find out more, read our full methodology.

We show offers we can track - that's not every product on the market...yet. Unless we've said otherwise, products are in no particular order. The terms "best", "top", "cheap" (and variations of these) aren't ratings, though we always explain what's great about a product when we highlight it. This is subject to our terms of use. When you make major financial decisions, consider getting independent financial advice. Always consider your own circumstances when you compare products so you get what's right for you. Most of the data in Finder's comparison tables has the source: Moneyfacts Group PLC. In other cases, Finder has sourced data directly from providers.
