To help our customers develop their saving habit, the changes include raising the interest rate on new Savings Pots to 0.5% AER. Anybody with a Spend & Save or Spend & Save Plus current account can simply open a new Savings Pot in their account to get this new rate.

With ‘Save the Pennies’ they can arrange to have debit card transactions rounded up to the nearest pound, so the ‘change’ goes straight into a Savings Pot. On average, TSB customers who use ‘Save the Pennies’ save £1.31¹ each day they use their debit card.

And if they include ‘My dream’ in the name of their Pot they will be included in our monthly prize draw. By the end of March, TSB will have paid out £50,000 to prize draw winners.

For savers under 16, TSB’s Young Saver account now pays 0.75% AER.

Notes to editors

¹ TSB internal data based on number of transactions each month.

  • The rate of 0.5% AER on Savings Pots includes an underlying rate of interest of 0.1% AER and a fixed bonus rate of 0.4% AER that will last for 12 months. It will be paid on all new Savings Pots opened on or after 12 April. Customers with existing pots can transfer savings into a new pot or can ‘re-bonus’ their existing Savings Pot(s) online or in a branch.
  • TSB’s prize draw offers five prizes of £1,000 and fifty prizes of £100 each month to randomly selected customers who include ‘My dream’ in the name of a Savings Pot and hold at least £10 in the Pot. Prizes are paid directly into customers’ Savings Pots, giving them a useful boost towards their savings goals.
