The essentials account is aimed for the young adult to be able to save and eventually get the ultimate goal. A deposit for a house. The account is to cover what we believe are the essentials for a young adult to have as they head out in the world. It doesn't matter if your working, a student or a young mother at home, we got you covered. If you are eligible for the essentials account, simply download the app from our website or from the app store and enjoy the benefits from your essentials account. Earn REWARDS as you spend and save.How it works
The bronze rewards we have provided are the most important part of the essentials account. With the bronze rewards you can get a discount on essential products.
If you are keen on saving. Then we have some great rewards for you. Maybe you would like a night in? Well at Nationwide we have rewards for those who really want to save.
Saving can be very hard, so at Nationwide we are rewarding our customers with a few days break at a hotel on us. Get rewarded for being a fantastic saver.
Our Nationwide reward is very easy to track, and with our new web application it has now become even easier. We have taken our time to find out what you, the customer needs to get along as a young adult. So we have provided you with what we think are the essentials.
For every £1000 you save a month, we will reward you with 20 gold points as a reward and effort as a big saver.
For every 10p you spend on your Nationwide debit or credit card, we will reward you with 1 bronze point.
For every £100 you save a month, we will reward you with 5 silver points for your reward and effort as a saver.
Our partners work close with us to ensure our Nationwide customers get the best experience.
To redeem your rewards, you can only use one offer per day for bronze rewards, silver and gold. For example you cannot use x2 ASDA shopping offers from the bronze points. However, you can use a bronze reward and a silver reward in one day. When you have selected the offer you want, you will be given either a QR barcode to scan and a coupon code (if required).
There are plenty of ways you can use your Railcard, for both long and short trips. Better still you can use it anytime on weekends, public holidays and during the week. The only restriction is that if you travel between 04:30 and 09:59 Monday to Friday (except during July and August) a minimum fare of £12 will apply.
No other bank or building society cares for it's customers as we do, unchanged for over a 100 years and we are still going. We feel that it's time for young adults to benifit from banking.
