VCCP got four stand up comedians to share their own experiences of saving to promote Nationwide's latest ISA prize draw
Saving Money is a Right Laugh with Nationwide

Today sees the launch of Nationwide’s new advertising campaign promoting its new ISA prize draw, which gives savers the chance to win up to £20,000 – the current annual ISA allowance. This forms part of the Society’s wider efforts to get the nation saving again.

The draw is open to new and existing members and, to qualify, ISA balances only need to be increased by £100 or more by the time the prize draw entry period closes at the end of April.

Entries into the ISA prize draw open on Friday 6th March and close on Thursday 30th April, ensuring members have the option of either using this year’s or next year’s tax-free allowance to enter.

The £500,000 giveaway will see savers getting ten chances to win the top prize of £20,000, with a further ten prizes of £10,000 and 40 prizes of £5,000.

Created by VCCP, the four new films showcase stand up comedians Adam Rowe, Amir Khosohkan, Laura Smyth and Esther Manito putting their own personal spin on ISAs and making them more relatable, accessible and authentic, while moving the conversation away from rates to more wider saving.

The ISA campaign follows on from Nationwide’s recent PayDay SaveDay campaign, which was launched in response to the savings crisis in the UK where more than 11 million people have less than £100 in savings and with the aim of getting people to put some money away, no matter how small.

This latest campaign forms part of the Society’s wider ‘Voices Nationwide’ advertising, which aims to celebrate people’s lives and stories in their own words. The use of comedy for this campaign sees an evolution of the PayDay SaveDay campaign, using comedians to try and make the topic of saving money become both relatable and light-hearted.

Neil Holloway, lead advertising manager at Nationwide, said: “Our latest ISA campaign builds on one of our biggest campaigns of recent times – PayDay SaveDay. Helping people to save is a core part of Nationwide’s purpose and we’re using this latest advertising to not only promote how we are rewarding our members with the ISA prize draw but to help encourage them to save more generally.”
