Your options when your Fixed Rate Saver term ends

As your Tesco Bank Fixed Rate Saver approaches maturity, you have a few options with what to do with your money. If we don’t hear from you before your account matures, we’ll send the interest you’ve made to your linked account. After this, your account will begin to earn our standard variable rate of 1.25% Gross/AER (variable).

        1. Reinvest for another fixed term

        If you want to keep saving with your Fixed Rate Saver account, you can reinvest for another fixed term. You can reinvest your existing balance with or without interest due up to a maximum of £5 million.

        You can reinvest up to 30 days before your term ends. Choose a new rate and term and keep earning interest right away.

        Remember, your funds will be locked away for the duration of your new term.
