1 Year Triple Access Online Saver

What is the interest rate?

Your rate depends on how many times you take money out in the 12 month term. After you take money out 4 times, the lower rate applies for the rest of the term.

Withdrawals Interest rate AER/gross a year (variable)
3 or fewer 1.21%
4 or more 0.10%

Receiving your interest

  • We work out your interest daily, and pay it into your account at the end of the term.
  • If you close your account early, we’ll pay your interest on the day it’s closed into another Nationwide current or savings account, or a current account with another UK provider. This account must be in your name, and be able to accept payments.

Can Nationwide change the interest rate?

Yes, the rates are variable. That means we can change them, up or down.

The following sections of our Savings General Terms and Conditions explain when we can do this, and how we’ll let you know:

  • ‘Variation of your interest rate and other account terms and conditions’
  • ‘How will we tell you about interest rate changes?’

You can also check our current rates in your branch, or online at nationwide.co.uk/savingsrates

How do I open and manage my account?

  1. Check you can have this account

    You need to:

    • be 16 or over
    • be a UK resident
    • have a valid email address, and
    • be able to open and manage the account online.

    You cannot open this account in trust for the benefit of another person.

  2. How to open your account

    You can open an account:

    You need to pay money into your account within 28 days or the account will close. You can pay in any amount up to £5 million.

  3. Manage your account

    • This is an online account - you can manage your money through the Internet Bank or Banking app.
    • You can’t pay in or withdraw cash or cheques and you’ll find your statements on the Internet Bank.

Can I withdraw money?

Yes, and you can take money out three times in the term without losing interest. If you take money out more than this, you’ll get a lower rate for the rest of the term.

You can use our Banking app or Internet Bank to transfer money to any Nationwide savings or current account that’s in your name and accepts payments. You can also transfer money to a current account you hold with another UK provider as long as it will accept ‘Faster Payments’.

At the end of the term

A year after you open your account, we’ll move your money to a Triple Access Online Saver account which pays a lower rate of interest. We’ll be in touch before this happens to explain your options and next steps.

Additional information

  • This account does not come with a card, passbook or certificate.
  • We’ll usually contact you about your account by email, unless we need to send you a letter.
