Switch Banks and Earn £100

switch banks

There are many reasons to switch banks, just as there are many for staying put. Banks and building societies offer a number of different accounts, benefits and more. If you aren’t happy, switch banks and reap the benefits of a new account and maybe even earn yourself a bonus.

Switching to Nationwide

I have banked with Nationwide for over tens years. I have numerous accounts and products with them, from savings accounts to the children’s CTF accounts. We have a local branch (the staff are lovely) but to be honest I do all of my banking online. As with most banks Nationwide have a brilliant website and a very handy app. You can set savings goals and so much more.

When it comes to customer service though, Nationwide are gold, and that is why I recommend Nationwide to people who want to switch banks. Every year I am able to recommend five people to Nationwide who, if they switch banks to them, will earn £100 within 30 days. I earn £100 too. Last year I recommended NW to three people. This year I have already been asked to refer two. This means that if you are looking to switch banks,  and want to earn yourself some extra pennies, I can help (three of you). 

Email Me with Subject Line “Switch Banks”

Email me on contact@nickicawood.co.uk if you would like me to refer you or to ask any questions. I just need an email address and you will receive an email from Nationwide with step by step instructions. I can only refer three more people so first come, first served.

Nationwide have been very good to us. We appreciate the way they run their business. If you aren’t happy with your current account now could be an excellent time to reconsider your options.

*I am recommending Nationwide because I have been happy with their service for over a decade. Please ensure that you do your own research into the best bank/accounts for you.
If you ask me to refer you and send me your email address I will use it solely for the purpose of filling in the referral form on Nationwide and sending you the initial referral email. After that, I will delete it.

The Year of Less by Cait Flanders

The Year of Less

If you’re looking a book purely about decluttering and spending less you’ll be disappointed in this book. The Year of Less by Cait Flanders is so much more than that. I tried reading that cult favourite book which asks you to take every item you own and hold it in your hands, see if it sparks joy, then throw it out if it didn’t. That book didn’t spark any joy so I threw it out. The Year of Less has its own electric current and I struggled to put it down.

Cait Flanders is a well-known blogger and freelance writer living in BC, Canada. I’ve been a blogger since 2006 and a freelance copywriter for almost as long and so can tell you, it’s rare to see anyone write so openly, honestly and so compellingly about alcohol dependency, consumerism, mental health and facing and overcoming it all in a brave and inspiring way.

Cait tells us what led to the decision of starting a year-long shopping ban, how the challenge was set up, what she could and couldn’t buy and we live with her through that year, and beyond. We see events unfurl in her life that threaten to break her, we look at things in her past that have shaped who she is today (or during the period the book was written about) and we look at where she finds herself after the year of less, and beyond. This is a personal journey for Cait that she generously decided to share with all of us and in doing so offers inspiration to countless others struggling with the pressures and expectations life likes to heap on top of us.

There are many books out there which tell of how a person has reinvented themselves or found the “true them”. Some are tongue in cheek, some hilarious and some rather dark. The Year of Less offers a lot of this and yet is somewhat unique in that it is written in a refreshingly matter-of-fact way.

This is a beautifully designed book that is easy to read (you don’t want to put it down) which glows with a truth that’s hard to deny. If you’re not sure what I mean by that read it. There’s a little of all of us in Cait Flanders and I for one wish there was more of Cait Flanders’ bloodymindedness in me!

If I was the sort to hand out stickers and give people star ratings The Year of Less would get a solid 5/5.

Find out more about Cait on her website and purchase her book from all major retailers (you won’t be sorry).

Hay House Publishing were kind enough to send me this book to read and review.
