How Recommend a Friend works


  • 1 Give us a few details

    We’ll then send you an email within 1-2 working days, which you’ll need to share with your friend.

  • 2 Your friend switches their account

    They’ll need to switch their main current account to a Nationwide FlexAccount, FlexPlus or FlexDirect account within 90 days of the recommendation, and transfer at least two Direct Debits as part of the switch (standing orders and recurring card payments don't qualify).

  • 3 Your friend follows the link in the email you shared

    Your friend will then need to give us their details, including their switch reference number, which they’ll have received when the switch started.

  • 4 You both get £100

    As long as the terms and conditions of the offer are met, you’ll both get £100. Why stop there? Earn up to £500 every tax year by successfully recommending up to five friends.
