Interest rates and Clubcard points terms

Credit interest guarantee terms and conditions

3% AER/2.96% Gross variable credit interest on balances up to £3,000, guaranteed until 1 April 2019. To earn interest, each statement month you must pay in at least £750 and have at least three direct debits paid from your account (excluding direct debits to a Tesco Bank savings account). Although this rate is variable it will not drop below 3% AER during the guarantee period, provided you meet the interest conditions. Interest paid monthly.

A statement month begins the day after you open your account and will end on the day you opened your account in the following month.

Annual Equivalent Rate (AER) illustrates what the interest rate would be if paid and compounded each year. Gross is the interest rate paid before tax is deducted.

Clubcard points guarantee terms and conditions

Until 1 April 2019 we guarantee you will collect 1 point per £1 spent in each debit card purchase transaction (£1 minimum) within Tesco in addition to your standard Clubcard points and collect 1 point per £8 spent in each debit card purchase transaction (£8 minimum) outside Tesco.

Exclusions apply. Clubcard collection rates are subject to change. There are some products at Tesco you can’t collect points on, see the Tesco Clubcard Terms and Conditions below for exclusions. The Tesco Clubcard Scheme is administered by Tesco Stores Limited, Tesco House, Shire Park, Kestrel Way, Welwyn Garden City, AL7 1GA, who are responsible for fulfilling points.

This product is subject to availability and may be withdrawn to new customers at any time.

Personal Savings Allowance

Following the Government’s introduction of the Personal Savings Allowance, we will no longer deduct tax from your interest earned.

The current tax rules are subject to changes by HM Revenue & Customs and the value of tax benefits depends on individual circumstances.
