RegularSaver (Issue 6)Rates correct as at 1 AUG 2017
Our Regular Saver is designed to help you make regular monthly deposits, but is flexible enough that you don’t have to.
When you first open a Regular Saver, the maximum amount you can deposit into the account is £250 (£250 for joint accounts). The account balance then increases each month by a maximum of £250 up to a maximum total balance of £3,000 (£3,000 for joint accounts) at the end of the fixed term period. Please see below for more information.
If you have the odd month when you can’t make a deposit, you can top up your account later on with a bigger payment – up to your maximum balance for that month.
That means you won’t lose out if you can’t put savings aside every month.
Note that you can only have one Regular Saver 6 at a time (including joint accounts). If you open a second Regular Saver 6, the money deposited in that account will be transferred to an instant access account.
Please note that you cannot open a Regular Saver (Issue 6) if you already have a Regular Saver (Issue 5).
