Nothing for my parents this month, so between the three of us then it is £75 "won" for £50k combined holdings.

Which is 1.5% so slightly above the rate they pay out at which is 1.3%.

Return to form. Up to £10k holding for next month's draw and that might be the end then as I'm due to be completing on my new pad.

Mine's not showing for October yet - after 2 blank months, I guess they're holding back to double-check my big win !

Do you mean on their web site checker? If so then that will maybe be updated tomorrow with the results for everyone, so you'll get word of your 6-figure win then

But if you have an account on the NS&I page then you can log-in and see on the second of every month if you have any wins. Sadly I forgot exactly how much I had in my account, so when I saw my updated balance, I thought I'd actually won £125 rather than £25

I am a loser this month

(and in fact even more of a loser as I bought £4k more Prem Bonds and the site failed at payment stage, then went through, got my confirmation and next day, text to say I was overdrawn as they'd taken it twice, that was fun trying to get them to refund that, they say its all my fault, I should have waited 24 hours.

Which is rubbish, as if that was true, they would have sent 2 confirmations.

But anyway, don't buy prem bonds on last day of the month and if website fails, assume money has gone to a nice pending account on NSI Side!

A Mad rush to transfer other money to cover the overdrawn amount?

Anyone on here actually think geniunely that they will hit the 1 Million? Would be interesting to know what people's returns are on Savings&Interest compared to similar amounts of PM's. Ive just opened a BOS Vantage A/C that pays 3% on 5k so along with S123 A/C thats £50 in interest on 25k p/m. Anyone else getting that on 25k?

Indeed and discovered Santander, when it says FASTER Payments, actually means, if its large, and first time paying someone, will take up to next day to transfer the cash.

Even if its back to the same account that fund it every month!

Santandar are known for not being great/fast with faster payments outbound which is why I try(dont think Ive done one yet)dont transfer out but done plenty in. I use Halifax&First Direct for transferring out.Got my Free £125 from First Direct last week as well so happy about that!
