News in brief:
Avios bonus from Nutmeg for existing customers
Last Monday we wrote about the very lucrative offer of up to 50,000 Avios from Nutmeg if you open an ISA or SIPP with them.
You can read more about that offer in this article. You still have a couple of weeks to sign up.
If you are an existing Nutmeg customer from before 1st November, there is a separate offer if you choose to top up your existing investment.
You will receive 10,000 Avios for every £10,000 you transfer (ISA or pension transfer only) into your account. You can earn up to 100,000 Avios! You can transfer ISAs, SIPPs, personal pensions and most workplace pensions to Nutmeg, so long as they are not in drawdown. They cannot cannot accept transfers of defined benefit / final salary pensions.
This top-up offer ends on 22nd December. Full details are on the Nutmeg website here. If you did not receive an email from them about this offer, possibly because of your marketing preferences, I would contact them first to confirm your eligibility.
Remember, as with all investing, that your capital is at risk. The value of your portfolio with Nutmeg can go down as well as up and you may get back less than you invest. ISA and pension rules apply.

You can also get generous sign-up bonuses by applying for American Express cards which earn Membership Rewards points.
