TSB has today launched a new current account, Spend & Save Plus – packed full of features to help customers feel more confident about their money. This new account, open to new and existing customers, builds on the successful launch last year of TSB’s current account, Spend & Save1, and offers more choice for customers.
Spend & Save Plus is a fee-paying account costing £3 a month. It includes the same popular features as Spend & Save such as Savings Pots, Save the Pennies (an automatic spending round-up), Auto Balancer (which moves money from Savings Pots) and text alerts to help customers best manage their money, but also includes the following additional features:
- Ongoing cashback2 – customers can earn £5 cashback each calendar month as long as they make 30 payments using their debit card every calendar month – which can be online or in store.
- Arranged Overdraft interest free amount3 of £100 – if customers have spent more than they usually do, they won’t be charged interest on the first £100.
- No TSB charges when using the card abroad4 – there are no TSB charges for customers using their debit card at ATMs or point of sale (contactless / swipe payments).
Pella Frost, TSB’s Director of Everyday Banking said: “We are expanding our current account offer to help more customers feel confident about managing their money. Spend and Save Plus is packed full of features that will help customers build healthy savings habits, avoid those unexpected costs and make the most out of their money.”
