If there are any changes to our savings range that could affect or benefit you, SavingsWatch will alert you straight away. So you’ll always know if you’re getting the most out of your savings account with us, and whether one of our other accounts could suit you better.

New and improved account alerts

If there's a change to our product range that could benefit you, we'll send you an email to let you know. 

Interest rate alerts

If your interest rate goes up or down, we'll let you know by email or SMS alert (you can choose how).

Annual Savings Summary

We’ll email you a yearly summary of your savings rates and an overview of our savings range.

How will I know the SavingsWatch email is genuinely from Nationwide Building Society?

  • Our emails will come from
  • We'll never ask for any of your personal details
  • If it’s an update on a new account, the email will contain your postcode – if you have a foreign postcode, this will say ‘N/A’
  • If it’s a rate change notification on your savings account, the email always shows the last 4 digits of your account number (i.e. xxxxx5678) and your postcode.

More than one account holder or account

  • You'll get a separate notification for each account held with us
  • If you have a joint account, only the account holder who has subscribed for the SavingsWatch service will receive the email.

Charges for SavingsWatch SMS while abroad

If you're abroad when you receive a SavingsWatch SMS text message and are 'roaming' (that means using a host network for connectivity when you're abroad), you may be charged for this. The cost depends on your tariff; you may want to check your tariff so you're aware of any costs if you were to receive a text whilst abroad.

Power of Attorney using SavingsWatch

Attorneys registered with us can subscribe for SavingsWatch on behalf of the account holder, but it’s the account holder’s mobile number or email address that’s notified.
