Checking Premium Bonds prizes

Customers can check to see if they have won on the prize checker and prize checker app from Thursday 2 July 2020. Customers will need their Premium Bonds holder’s number to use the website and their NS&I number or holder’s number to check via the 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. They can check the online prize checker at or the NS&I prize checker app to see the value of their prize. Those 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 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. If customers have a problem at that time and the bank won’t accept the warrant, NS&I can send a new one.

New customers buying Premium Bonds for the first time, should do so online at 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. Find out more at:


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

“When people think of Premium Bonds they often recall memories of a prize warrant landing on their doormat, but since the introduction of paperless prizes we’ve seen a good uptake in the number of customers choosing to have their prizes paid directly into their bank account. In June alone just over 70% of Premium Bonds prizes were paid out in this way – making it the quickest and most convenient way for people to receive their prizes.

“Premium Bonds holders can choose to have their prizes paid directly into their bank account, or to have any wins reinvested up to the maximum holding amount of £50,000, by registering for NS&I’s online services with a valid email address or mobile phone number. Money put aside each month can quickly grow into a small nest egg with the added bonus of a potentially life-changing prize.”
