TSB launches its latest switching offer – offering customers £200

From today, customers who switch to a TSB Spend & Save or Spend & Save Plus current account will receive £200, paid in two instalments.

New customers will receive £125 if they open an account between 10 July 2023 and before the offer is withdrawn, and then switch to TSB using the Current Account Switch Service before 31 August 2023. Customers will also need to set up at least two direct debits, use their debit card at least once and log into the TSB Mobile Banking app to get the first instalment paid into their account by 30 September 2023.

A further £75 will be paid into their accounts by 31 March 2024 if they keep their account open, and each month: pay in at least £500, make five debit card payments and have two direct debits.

Earning cashback

Customers can earn £5 in cashback a month for the first six months with a Spend & Save account.

For Spend & Save Plus, the same cashback is available on an ongoing basis – so customers can earn £60 in the first 12 months.

To earn their cashback, customers must make 20 debit card payments each month. This was recently reduced from 30 to 20 to make it easier for customers to earn the cashback.

Spend & Save accounts also come with valuable features:

  • On top of the switching and cashback offers, TSB’s Spend & Save and Spend & Save Plus accounts come with instant access savings called Savings Pots. Customers can earn 2.52% interest AER variable.
  • TSB also has its Monthly Saver account. Customers can earn 5.00% Gross/AER, fixed for 12 months.
  • Auto-balancer – allows customers to choose a minimum balance limit on their account. If the balance falls below that level, it will automatically move money from a chosen Savings Pot to top it up.
  • ‘Save the Pennies’: customers can arrange to have debit card transactions rounded up to the nearest pound, so the ‘change’ goes straight into a Savings Pot.
  • In addition, Spend & Save Plus offers customers:
    • No TSB charges for using their Spend & Save Plus debit card abroad.
    • £100 interest-free Arranged Overdraft for short term borrowing, subject to application and approval. Overdrafts are repayable on demand.
Marta Edwards, Head of Personal Current Accounts at TSB said: “Our current accounts provide lots of ways to help you manage your money better and this offer is another great reason to make the switch.”
