Home owning could be Rewarding

If you are becoming a home owner, you can pay your household bills by direct debit, as we'll give you 3% back in Rewards with one of our Reward accounts.  That's council tax, gas, electricity, water, phone, TV and broadband bills. That means for every £100 of household bills you get £3 back.  Monthly account fee applies.
