How to open a TSB savings account

Opening a TSB savings account depends on the type. Fixed bonds, ISAs and instant access accounts can be opened online or in a branch. A Monthly Saver is available to existing TSB current account customers and can be opened online or in-branch.

Depending on the account, you have the option to manage them online, in a branch, over the phone or in the TSB app.

How do I decide which account is for me?

Firstly, you need to decide what you’re looking for in a savings account. How often are you planning to draw out money? How much money can you afford to save each month?

You need to work out what you need before comparing the different offers available for certain types of savings accounts. Once you’ve done that, it’s useful to look at:

  • Interest rates
  • Fees (If there are any.)
  • Access to cash (If you need quick access, for instance.)
  • Rewards and loyalty schemes (If you’re into add-ons or switching bonuses.)

Is my money safe with TSB?

Should anything go wrong, all eligible deposits with TSB up to a total of £85,000 per person are guaranteed by the British government. This is what’s known as the Financial Services Compensation Scheme (FSCS), and is the same scheme that protects customers of most of, if not all, the major banks and building societies in the UK.

What are the pros and cons of banking with TSB?

Pros

  • Online banking. TSB’s adult savings accounts can be managed online, so you can take care of your savings wherever you are. The instant access savers even let you handle your account in its mobile app.
  • Flexibility. TSB offers a range of savings accounts which provide options for all types of savers.

Cons

  • Better rates elsewhere? Rates aren’t market leading, so you might be able to get better elsewhere.
  • IT problems. TSB has suffered from IT issues in recent times. In April 2018 thousands of customers were locked out of their accounts.
  • Poor customer service scores. Only 52% of TSB customers would recommend their bank to others based on overall service quality, according to an annual survey commissioned by the Competition and Markets Authority.

Our verdict

Whether you’re looking to save little and often or in big chunks, for yourself or for a child, TSB should have a savings account to suit. Just to be sure, though, check out our other savings reviews first to see how TSB savings accounts weigh up against the competition in terms of benefits, rates and fees.
