Nationwide Refer a Friend Program

To Recommend a Friend

  • Fill out the form here. You’ll only pass the verification if you answer yes to one of the questions on which account you hold with Nationwide.
  • You’ll be sent your unique referral link, which you can then share with friends.
  • At this point your friend will have to apply for the Nationwide FlexAccount, FlexPlus or FlexDirect current account within 90 days of your recommendation.
  • They’ll also have to transfer two Direct Debits as part of the switch.
  • You should receive your payment within 10-14 days as long as their switch was successful.

To Be Referred

  • Get hold of your friend’s unique referral link, use it to navigate to the site and start setting up your account.
  • You’ll need to switch your main current account to a Nationwide FlexAccount, FlexPlus or FlexDirect current account.
  • You’ll also have to transfer across at least two Direct Debit payments.
  • As long as you’re accepted for the account and have followed the steps above you’ll receive your payment within 10-14 days.

Referrer: £100 cash

Friend: £100 cash

Existing Account Required?: Yes

Maximum Referrals: 5 per year

Nationwide are one of the UK’s favourite Building Societies. So it’s only right and proper that they have one of the best refer a friend programs out there. Existing Nationwide account holder? Refer up to 5 new friends each year, and if they switch their main current account to a Nationwide Nationwide FlexAccount, FlexDirect or a FlexPlus account you’ll both get £100 as a reward. That’s up to £500 a year just for spreading the word! The same offer is also available to certain Savings ISAs and under 18 student accounts.

    I have free referral links available for anyone interested, email me at (links have to be unique). I will respond quickly. (I’d recommend Nationwide anyway as they’re a building society rather than a bank). I can theoretically request unlimited links, I just won’t be paid for any additional ones after 5 (but you still would be), so anyone looking to switch to Nationwide email me for a quick response and I guarantee you will receive a link!

    (I don’t need any personal details from you, I will just send you a link from Nationwide which you use to sign up and get £100 bonus. And yes I’m using an alias for my email here encase someone decides to try and spam it, but it forwards to same mailbox as all my other emails, so I promise a quick response with your link.) Could really do with this as I haven’t manged to persuade anyone to switch yet 🙂.

    Hi all, if anyone needs a referral, feel free to drop me an email on

    I have assisted friends and family members switching to Nationwide and highly recommend this switch. I currently have 3 referrals left for this year. Please note the following to qualify for the £100 reward which are stipulated in the Nationwide Recommend a Friend T&Cs:
    – The switch must close the old account.
    – A minimum of two existing Direct Debits on the old account must be transferred as part of the switch. Other types of automated payments, such as Standing Orders and recurring card payments, will not count towards this.

    You may also be interested in the Flex Direct current account when applying which gives 5% interest for up to £2,500 balance in the account. This is subjected to a minimum of £1,000 per month paid into the currently account.

    Definite recommended. A big plus is once you join, you can recommend to your friends and families to join too and share more rewards among yourselves.

    Give me a message and I am more than happy to provide a recommendation and answer any questions.

    I’ve started a new year with Nationwide and have 5 referral codes to give out, I don’t need any personal information from you apart from an email address.

    All above rules are still valid, you need to switch from an non-nationwide current account and close that account as part of the switch process.

    Email me for a referral code:

    We’ll each get £100 once your switch to Nationwide is complete.

    Hey guys, let me know if you need a referral link –

    I’ll pass you one asap and we’ll both bag a cheeky £100 bonus ! Remember it needs to be the FULL switch and there’s other conditions attached to it so make sure those are fulfilled as part of the switch (I think there’s some DD requirements – check!)
