Nationwide changes rates and offers discount to its loyal borrowers

28 August 2012

From 29 August, Nationwide is making changes to its fixed rates and tracker rate mortgages. NewBuy and four-year fixed rates will remain unchanged.

At the same time, Nationwide is improving the way it rewards customer loyalty by offering reduced rates to borrowers who choose to stay with the Society.

Previously, the Society offered a range of loyalty rewards that varied depending on different customer circumstances. This new proposition is simple and transparent, meaning existing customers - whether borrowing more, moving home or simply just changing deals - will get a reduction on any rate selected from the Society’s full range of fixed and tracker rate mortgages, whether they come direct to Nationwide or through a broker.1

Furthermore, in September, the Society is set to broaden access to its Flexclusive deals to all its existing mortgage customers with a FlexAccount, not just those moving home. Combined with the reduction in rate, these deals will be even more attractive.

Tracie Pearce, Nationwide’s head of mortgages, said: “We wanted to give existing customers the clear message that their loyalty is valued. We are demonstrating this by offering them lower rates than those we offer our new customers. When other providers use their best deals to lure in new customers, it’s reassuring to know that as an existing customer of Nationwide, you will be offered our very best rates either when you come to the end of your deal or if you want to borrow more.”
