HSBC Online Bonus Saver

Enjoy a variable rate of 0.55% AER/gross with an Online Bonus Saver account in months when you don’t make a withdrawal – and if you do make a withdrawal, you’ll still receive 0.10% AER/gross.
  • Start saving with just £1. That's all you need to open an account. Please note that accounts are limited to one per customer.
  • Higher rate on balances up to £50,000. If you have more than £50,000 in your Online Bonus Saver account, we pay a lower interest rate on the money above £50,000.
  • Bonus interest, calculated daily. Make no withdrawals in the month and you'll earn bonus interest. Interest is calculated daily and paid monthly on the full balance.
  • Manage your account online. As the name suggests, this account is ‘online only’. That means you can access your funds anytime you need them and all your interactions with this account will be online.
