Simply Rewards Celebrates Its First Anniversary

Nationwide customers save more than £100,000 thanks to Simply Rewards

06 November 2012

Nationwide’s Simply Rewards discount website today celebrates its first anniversary. Since its launch in November 2011, more than a million customers have visited the website with many customers taking advantage of the great deals on offer.

Simply Rewards provides Nationwide debit and credit card customers with savings against a number of top brands, including HMV, Café Rouge, The Gourmet Society, aka promotions (West End Theatre), Kwik Fit, TM Lewin and Carluccio’s.

The site also includes discounts from Butlins, Lastminute.com and Virgin Holidays, helping customers save money on holidays both in the UK and abroad. Those holding a main FlexAccount with the Society also benefit from free European travel insurance*, which can protect them both in the UK and overseas.

Main FlexAccount customers also qualify for the exclusive Select credit card (12.9% APR representative (variable)), which offers commission free purchases when used abroad.

Phil Smith, Nationwide’s head of current accounts, said: “Finding a discount online before making a purchase has now become the norm as many people look to make their money go further.

“Despite the economic climate many people still see an annual holiday as an essential spend, but many are looking to save money where they can.

“Not only can Nationwide FlexAccount customers make savings through Simply Rewards when booking their holiday, those travelling within Europe, including the UK, could also save money by not having to purchase separate travel insurance.”
