Your account balance must increase by at least £50 (but no more than £100) in each of the three Calendar Months leading up to the month of the prize draw. For example, to qualify for the prize draw on 21 October, the total balance in your account needs to increase by at least £50 in July; at least £50 in August and at least £50 in September.
We measure the increase in your account balance by comparing the balance at the end of the Calendar Month with the balance at the beginning of the Calendar Month.
This means that, if you take money out of your account during a Calendar Month, then you may need to pay some or all of it back in. For example, if your account balance is £100 at the beginning of the Calendar Month and you then take out £50, you’ll need to pay in at least £100 to increase the balance to at least £150 by the end of the Calendar Month.
Please note that if, for example, you open your account in August 2020, you can’t qualify for the prize draw on 21 October 2020 as you won’t have been increasing your account balance for at least three Calendar Months.
We won’t enter your account into the prize draw if your balance hasn’t gone up by at least £50 or if it’s increased by more than £100, in any of the three Calendar Months leading up to the month of the draw.
The interest or any prize draw winnings we pay into your account will not count towards the increase in balance you need to be entered into a prize draw, nor will interest payments or prize draw winnings contribute to the prize fund for a prize draw (see below).
Your account must also still be open, and you must be living in England, Wales or Scotland on the day of the prize draw.
