What is the interest rate?

Can Royal Bank change the interest rate?
Yes, we may change the rate up or down. There are a few reasons for this, such as a change in the Bank of England base rate. You can find a full list of reasons for an interest rate change in section 9.2 of the Savings Account Terms. We’ll give you at least 14 days’ notice if the rates are going down and your balance is £100 or more. Otherwise we’ll tell you before or shortly after the change. You can find more details about how we’d tell you about a change in section 9.2 of the Savings Account Terms (PDF, 474KB).

How do I open and manage my account?
You can open a Digital Regular Saver if you're
- A UK resident, aged 16 years or over and a Royal Bank of Scotland current account holder.
- We will need an email address and mobile number to open your account. You can update them online.
- You can manage your account on our mobile app, online, in branch or by telephone.
- You are able to use Round Ups with Digital Regular Saver.
- You can only pay up to £150 into the account each calendar month. This includes your standing order and any extra money you put in. Round Ups won't count towards your monthly £150 limit. Any amount over this limit may be automatically moved to your current account. If you repeatedly try to pay more than £150 each month into the account, you will be given 60 days’ notice to close the account.
- There's no minimum deposit to open the account, however you'll need to set up a standing order from your Royal Bank of Scotland current account of between £1 and £150 each calendar month into the account. If you wish to put extra money into the account, the combination of this and your standing order cannot exceed the £150 per calendar month limit. There is no maximum balance limit, however, the higher interest rate will only apply to balances up to and including £5,000.
- Extra money can come from a current or savings account in your name held with us or held with another bank (online, by telephone or on the mobile app) as long as it doesn't exceed the £150 monthly limit.
- You can only have one Digital Regular Saver and it needs to be in your name. Joint accounts aren’t allowed.
- If you close your account, you will not earn interest for the month of closure.
Can I withdraw money?
Yes, you can withdraw your money at anytime. Simply move the amount you want to your current account held with us using your Digital Banking, mobile app, in branch or by telephone.
If you close or switch your current account with us in future, you will only be able to withdraw money from your account in branch.
