In detail: Premium Saver

What's the interest rate?

With Bonus Interest: no withdrawals are made in a month

Without Bonus Interest: one or more withdrawals are made in a month

Interest is paid on a tiered basis which means you'll earn one rate on your entire account balance. If, for example, you hold £150,000 in your account and you have satisfied the bonus condition, your interest rate for that monthly bonus period will be 0.20% AER/Gross p.a. on your entire account balance. You can find details of the bonus condition in the Additional information section. Interest is calculated daily and paid on the first business day of the month and at account closure. You’ll be able to see and access the interest in your account on the following day.

Can NatWest International change the interest rate?

Yes, the interest rate is variable. The rate may increase or decrease for any of the reasons set out in Term 10.3 of the Personal Banking Account Terms and Fees to account for the Bank of England's base rate changes or changes in the rates paid by other banks. If the rates are going down we'll give you at least 60 days' notice. If they are going up, we'll inform you before the change or shortly afterwards. Term 10.4 of the Personal Banking Account Terms and Fees contains details of the notice we'll give you.

How much interest could I earn?

Estimated balance after 12 months, based on a range of deposits

No withdrawals made in any month: bonus condition is met

These are only examples that do not take into account your individual circumstances. They assume that no further deposits or withdrawals are made; there is no change to the interest rates; and any interest earned stays in the account.

One withdrawal of £50 made each month: bonus condition is not met for the whole year

These are only examples that do not take into account your individual circumstances. They assume that no further deposits or withdrawals are made; there is no change to the interest rates; and any interest earned stays in the account.

How do I open and manage my account?

  • You must be aged 16 years or over, and have a current account with us (or apply for one at the same time as opening your savings account), to open a Premium Saver account.
  • You can only have one Premium Saver Account in your sole name, and only one Premium Saver Account in joint names with another person.
  • You can open your account online, in branch or by telephone banking. To open an account online or by phone, you will need to be a registered user of these services.
  • No minimum deposit is required to open the account; you do not need to pay money in on a regular basis; and there is no maximum balance limit.
  • However, to earn the bonus rate of interest in each monthly bonus period, your account balance must be between £25,000 – £1,000,000 and you must not make any withdrawals in that month.

Can I withdraw or transfer money?

Yes, Premium Saver is an instant access savings account which means that you can withdraw, transfer or access your money at any time. However, if you make one or more withdrawals, you will not earn bonus interest on any applicable balance for that calendar month.

You can withdraw or transfer money:

There are daily limits on the amount you can transfer from your account online, by telephone or mobile banking. You can find out the current daily limits on this website, by contacting telephone banking or asking in branch.
