Get prizes paid quicker and more securely

Customers can arrange to have any future prizes paid straight in to their bank account if they are registered for NS&I’s online service and have an email address or mobile phone number. Customers should visit and click ‘Log in’, go to ’Your profile’ and select ‘Your prize options’.

Customers can also choose to have their prizes reinvested, up to the maximum holding amount of £50,000. This means that any prizes won can automatically be reinvested into more Premium Bonds that will go straight into the next prize draw.

Customers who have chosen to have prizes in these ways will be informed whether they have won by email or text message. Those who receive warrants (like a cheque) will receive notification of any wins through the post.

Ian Ackerley, NS&I Chief Executive, said:

“We’re absolutely delighted for our two winners in Wales and South Scotland who have won this life changing sum of money. The easiest way for customers to get any prizes they win is to have them paid directly into their bank account. Customers can also choose to have their prizes automatically reinvested into more Premium Bonds, giving them more chances of winning in future draws.

“Every £1 Bond number has an equal chance of winning, which is why the enduring magic of Premium Bonds and the chance to win a prize each month are still one of the most fun ways to get into that savings habit.”
