Couldn’t find an RBS thread but please merge if there is one

New savings rate for the regular saver account

Oh, I like that! Is it still only up to £1k?

That’s pretty good even if it is limited to 1k, I’m guessing it’s instant access?

Yes instant access and you can go over £1,000 but rate drops to 0.50% and limited to £150 deposit a month

Have changed the thread title, to make it easier for others to find it, as you had problems.

I’ve updated the title cos Natwest are also offering this

Was more setting this up as a RBS thread as doesn’t seam to be one

Changed the title — yet again – to simply say RBS. Too much info in the title might make it harder to search. I suggest we settle on this given @dudesuper’s intention to have it as a general topic?

Ah so I guess you can’t just dump £1k in and leave it to collect interest?

Fine, apologies if I causes any upset

Anyway, NatWest also offer this as they are part of the same group. And, debatably, a better card :slight_smile:

It would be cool for the budgeting to be shared between the two app’s, so I could have an RBS/Drummonds card for spending and Natwest for everything else

There’s a separate NatWest thread though – and this wasn’t just about the savings

You can put it in £150 a time (plus roundups if you spend from your RBS account)

Sadly, the interest rate drops to 0.50% over £1k and as has been said you can only put up to £150 a month in

When my RBS account is up and running I’ll put £150 a month in until it hits £1k then leave it I guess!

That’s what I’ve done. Exactly a grand in there now. Stopped the SO once hit.

Just got the email my account has been opened and I should have access in the next 24 hours, I take it you just open the saver through the app?

Just got an email saying my RBS select account is ready to go, don’t seem to be able to do anything though as I don’t have a debit card or customer number yet, I guess it will come in the post with my debit card?

If you do a livechat with them or ring them they can usually tell you the information you need just from your details.

If all the info will come in the post with my card I’m not too worried about getting the info ASAP, can happily wait a few days.

I’ve been spoilt by fintech banks and just assumed I’d get all the info in the email so I could set up the app. :laughing:
