Checking Premium Bonds prizes

Customers can check to see if they have won on the nsandi.com prize checker and prize checker app from Tuesday 2 June 2020. Customers will require their Premium Bonds holder’s number to use the website and app.

Customers who have chosen to have prizes paid to their bank account, or have their prizes reinvested, will be informed whether they have won by email or text message and can check the online prize checker at nsandi.com or the NS&I prize checker app to see the value of their prize. Customers who receive warrants, like a cheque, will receive notification of any wins through the post.

Customers can arrange to get future prizes paid straight in to their bank account if they are registered for NS&I’s online service and have an email address or mobile phone number. Customers should visit nsandi.com and click ‘Log in’, go to ’Your profile’ and select ‘Your prize options’.

NS&I Premium Bonds prize warrants are valid for three months, however the warrants may still be accepted at a later date by the bank – up to 6 months. However, if you have a problem at that time and the bank won’t accept the warrant, NS&I can send you a new warrant.

New customers buying Premium Bonds for the first time, should do so online at https:\\www.nsandi.com. Existing customers looking to increase the size of their holding in Premium Bonds can invest by bank transfer and do not need to be registered for our online and telephone banking service to do this.

Jill Waters, NS&I’s Retail Director, said:

“We are currently asking new and existing customers to do everything they can with NS&I online. Customers who invest with NS&I online will be automatically registered so that they can manage their savings online or by phone. This will allow them to check their balances, pay money in or take it out, choose to have any Premium Bonds prizes paid directly into their bank account and also to transfer money between their NS&I accounts.

“For any customer wishing to invest into an existing NS&I account, the quickest way to do this is to make a transfer from their bank account or to set up a standing order. Customers can invest into all of our on sale products using this method.”
