Corby Council has become the latest organisation to support a national campaign offering bill payers the chance to win £5,000 by switching to Direct Debit.
The Freedom Guaranteed campaign, run by Bacs Payment Schemes Limited (Bacs), the not-for-profit organisation behind Direct Debit in the UK, will see a total of £20,000 given away in quarterly draws throughout 2015 and is open to anyone setting up a Direct Debit with any organisation over the course of the year.
So if you switch a regular payment such as council tax or housing rent to Direct Debit, then you could have 5,000 reasons to celebrate.
And it couldn’t be easier to get involved – once you have switched, simply register the Direct Debit online at www.directdebit.co.uk/freedom before December 31 for a chance to win.
You can enter as many Direct Debits as you like, as long as they are with different organisations.
Deputy Leader of Corby Council Cllr Jean Addison said: “We’d encourage all of our residents to consider switching to Direct Debit, it is simple to set up and will take all the hassle out of paying your council tax or rent.
“Not only this but if you pay by Direct Debit you could be the lucky resident that lands £5,000!”
To find out more about how you can switch your housing rent and council tax to Direct Debit call 01536 464000 or visit the council’s One Stop Shop in the Corby Cube.
It’s a simple process and all you will need is your name, address and bank details.
There are also optional dates for payment to help suit you and Housing Rent can be taken weekly.
