Your TSB Visa debit card is an amazing piece of plastic. Accepted in millions of places and cash machines worldwide, it's incredibly convenient. It's just as safe to use abroad as at home, so it's a simple alternative to carrying cash.

More about the Visa debit card

Every time you use your TSB Visa debit card we'll round up the amount you spent to the nearest pound and transfer the difference from your current account into an eligible TSB savings account.

A joint account is simply a bank account in the name of two or more people. You can either convert your existing bank account into a joint account by adding someone else to it, or open a new account in two people's names.

Benefits

  • Convenient way to share outgoings like shopping, bills, mortgage or rent payments

  • You'll both get your own Visa debit card for payments and cash

  • You can still keep your own current account and open an additional TSB joint account, and move money between the two accounts easily

Important things to remember

Along with the benefits of opening a joint account, there are also extra responsibilities. Here are a few things to consider:

  • Each person can make withdrawals, use cash machines or apply for an overdraft without needing the other's approval

Apply for a joint account

You can open a joint account or add someone to your existing account at your nearest branch. You'll both need to go into a branch so that you can provide identification in person.

Account Opening is subject to our assessment of your circumstances. You must be 18 or over and a UK resident to apply.
