September’s second millionaire is a woman based in South Scotland. She has a total Premium Bonds holding of £10,000, with the winning Bond number 093XD777211 being purchased in March 2003. The jackpot win means that the woman is the third Premium Bonds millionaire from the region.
Customers can arrange to have any 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’.
Customers can also choose to have their prizes reinvested, up to the maximum holding amount of£50,000. This means that any prizes won can automatically be reinvested into more Premium Bonds that will go straight into the next prize draw.
Customers who have chosen to have prizes in these ways will be informed whether they have won by email or text message. Those who receive warrants (like a cheque) will receive notification of any wins through the post.
New customers buying Premium Bonds for the first time should do so online at 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.
Ian Ackerley, NS&I Chief Executive, said:
“We’re absolutely delighted for our two winners in Wales and South Scotland who have won this life changing sum of money. The easiest way for customers to get any prizes they win is to have them paid directly into their bank account. Customers can also choose to have their prizes automatically reinvested into more Premium Bonds, giving them more chances of winning in future draws.
“Every £1 Bond number has an equal chance of winning, which is why the enduring magic of Premium Bonds and the chance to win a prize each month are still one of the most fun ways to get into that savings habit.”
Customers can check to see if they have won on the nsandi.com prize checker and prize checker app from Wednesday 2 September 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.
