RBS switch deal update

RBS’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.

RBS launched a £200 switching bonus on 15 February 2024, available for new and existing customers who use the Current Account Switch Service to switch into a Select, Reward or Premier account (monthly fees start at £2 for the Reward and Premier accounts). Our guide explains how easy it is to get this extra money.

How much will you get?

You’ll get £200, which is the largest switch bonus available. This is paid within 7 days once you’ve fulfilled the eligibility criteria. More on that below.

If you get either of these accounts, you can also open a Digital Regular Saver, which pays 6.17% AER (variable) on balances up to £5,000. The maximum monthly deposit is £150, meaning you could earn £59.83 in interest in the first year.

If you open the Reward Account, you can get £4 a month back if you have 2 or more direct debits of over £2 each. You can also earn an extra quid each month if you log in to the mobile app, which shouldn’t be too difficult. After the £2 monthly fee, that works out to £3 a month or £36 for the year.

Overall, the switch could be worth a tidy £295.83 after the first year.

Who can get this deal?

This deal is available for new and existing RBS customers. You must be a UK resident and 18 or older to be eligible.

How you can get the £200 switching bonus

To qualify, you must:

  • Be a UK resident over 18.
  • Have an RBS Select, Reward, Reward Silver, Select Silver, Reward Platinum, Select Platinum, Premier Select, Premier Reward, Black, Premier Reward Black or Foundation account. It can be existing or new.
  • Complete a switch of a non-RBS current account to your eligible account using the Current Account Switch Service online or via the RBS mobile app.
  • Deposit £1,250 into your eligible account. You can do this in multiple payments.
  • Log in to the RBS mobile app within 60 days of switching to your eligible account.

The exclusions

  • If you’ve previously received a switcher incentive from RBS, NatWest or Ulster Bank since 1 January 2020, you won’t be eligible. All these banks are part of the NatWest Group.
  • If your switch doesn’t fully complete, you won’t receive the incentive. A complete switch means your old bank account closes, and any funds and direct debits move to your new account.
  • If your deposit of £1,250 isn’t in your new account for at least 24 hours, you won’t be eligible for the bonus payment, so be patient!
  • You can’t apply to switch your non-RBS account in a branch or over the phone. You must use the Current Account Switch Service online or via the mobile app to be eligible for the bonus.
  • Joint accounts are only eligible for a single bonus.
  • If you open multiple eligible accounts, you’ll get the offer only once.

The offer will end on Tuesday 2nd April 2024.
