How to see if you’re a Premium Bond prize winner

Premium Bonds holders can check to see if they have won a prize in April’s prize draw by using the nsandi.com prize checker, the official prize checker app or your Alexa-enabled device from Tuesday 4 April 2023.

You will need your Premium Bonds holder’s number to use the website and your NS&I number or holder’s number to check via the prize checker app.

At the same time, you can check for any unclaimed prizes owed to them. The oldest unclaimed prize is from July 1968, worth £25.

Where to save your money this April

Premium Bonds are one of the nation's most popular savings products. They are the perfect way to start a savings habit, with the minimum investment starting at £25.

And with prize rates rising, they are proving to be a popular product.

For the March draw, the rate rose from 3.15% to 3.3%, creating an extra £15 million in prizes to be won each month.

Premium Bonds customers can add to their Premium Bonds holding quickly and securely, both for themselves or their child, via bank transfer or online.

But those looking for a more reliable return may want to look at some of the rates being offered on savings accounts by banks such as First Direct and Market Harborough Building Society..

The best one-year fixed savings and easy-access savings accounts also have competitive rates. But keep an eye out for changing base interest rates. Recent turbulence within the banking sector has raised questions over whether the Bank of England will hike rates again - a factor central to the savings rates offered by banks.
