Available from 12 October and for a fee for £3 a month, customers will receive 3% of their spend back in rewards on a range of household bills, including: council tax, gas, electricity, water, phones, TV and broadband.

Unlike other providers, there are no minimum criteria, no limit to the amount of eligible bills that can be included or the amount customers can earn – all they have to do is pay their bills by Direct Debit through their account. Customers paying more than £100 per month in eligible household bill direct debits will earn their £3 monthly fee back.

There are no catches and no complicated terms and conditions – once customers have earned £5 in Rewards, they can cash it in, trade it for shopping vouchers, or convert to cash to then donate to charity.

On the launch of the new current account, CEO of NatWest and RBS Personal and Business Banking Les Matheson commented:

“We want to be the bank that helps you out, not catches you out. Our new account is simple, fair and is a great way for our customers to benefit from banking with us. Everyone has bills to pay, so we want to help our customers where it matters most, by giving them something back for money they’re already spending.”

Rewards can be redeemed through the bank’s Cashback Plus scheme, which will be renamed MyRewards. Customers can easily track their savings through their MyReward account, available through NatWest and RBS’s online banking or mobile apps. It is linked to their current account so customers can see how much they could redeem each month.
