Our free text alert service warns you when your balance is low (you set the limit) so you'll know if you're about to go overdrawn, giving you a chance to pay money in before any charges apply.
Get other timely nudges about the status of your account like a high balance alert, or regular mini-statements showing your balance and the last five transactions.
To sign up, simply log into the Internet Bank and go to 'My alert settings' in the 'Manage my details and settings' tab, and select which text messages you'd like to receive. Or you can sign up in the Banking app in the 'Details & Settings' section. If you don't bank with us online you can pop into a branch or call us on 0800 30 20 11 to register for text alerts.
If you register for any text alert we'll also send you Payment Retry Alerts to warn you if a Direct Debit, standing order or other bill can't be paid because you're low on funds. It helps you avoid charges by giving you time to pay money into your account before the payment retries later in the day.
