Reward Account eligibility: To earn Rewards on your household bills, you’ll need to pay £1,500 into any personal current account(s) you have with us (as long as it’s not a Foundation, Basic or mortgage current account) every calendar month. The £1,500 can’t be transferred from another NatWest current account or savings account that you have with us. You must also log into online or mobile banking at least once every three months. Otherwise, we may not pay Rewards on household bills and we may convert your Reward account to a Select account.

 

Rewards explained

What are Rewards?

They're simple

You automatically earn Rewards on seven selected household bills paid by Direct Debit and on purchases at partner retailers. 5.00 in Rewards = £5.00.

 

They could grow quickly

You could earn £83 on average in Rewards. There's no limit to the Rewards you can earn.

 

Average earning of £83 in Rewards a year is based on paying 7 types of household bills of £345 a month and is before the Reward monthly account fee is paid.

 

 

They're easy to exchange

As soon as your available Rewards balance is the equivalent of £5 or more, you can convert your Rewards to money, which you can either transfer into your NatWest current account or use towards reducing your Reward credit card balance.

 

Rewards can also be exchanged for gift cards or codes at selected retailers or converted to money and donated to participating charities.

How do I earn Rewards?

2% back in Rewards on seven household bills

You will earn Rewards on the following bills when you pay by Direct Debit from your Reward bank account; Council Tax, mobile, landline, TV package, gas, electricity and broadband.

 

Payments to billing organisations but which are for other services such as maintenance, repairs or insurance will not earn Rewards.   

 

At least 1% back in Rewards at partner retailers

After you've opened your account, you'll receive personalised retailer offers where you can earn extra Rewards when you use your NatWest debit card. To view your personalised offers, exchange any Rewards and to check your Rewards balance, you will need to register on the MyRewards site.
