NatWest customers ‘excited’ about major change in savings for every app user

NatWest customers who use the bank’s app can now opt for a Round Up service – and bank account holders are delighted.

If you are unable to save or are ready to save a little more, the “Rounding” services allow customers to automatically save spare change on daily transactions.

Many banks have offered this service for a long time – with Monzo and Lloyds having the option to round your transaction to the nearest pound as standard.

NatWest account holders took to the Extreme Couponing and Bargains UK Facebook group to share the news.

A post with the caption “FINALLY, NatWest is rounding up!” racked up a whopping 1.5k comments.

“I sincerely wish Barclays had done this!! What a great idea!” replied a Facebook user.

Another wrote: “I just started using it and it builds slowly and you don’t even notice it, great little app.”

Here’s how the service works:

  • Pay with your debit card or contactless device – say it’s a coffee for £2.30
  • NatWest will round to the nearest pound
  • NatWest sends your spare change, in this case 70p, to your savings account

Round Ups starts working as soon as you activate it and includes any already pending debit or contactless payments.
