Summary Box

Account name: Premium Saver

What is the interest rate?

With bonus interest: no withdrawals made in any month

Without bonus interest: one or more withdrawals made in a month

Interest is paid on a tiered basis which means you'll earn one rate on your entire account balance. If, for example, you hold £150,000 in your account and you have satisfied the bonus condition, your interest rate for that monthly bonus period will be 0.85% AER/Gross p.a. on your entire account balance. You can find details of the bonus condition in the Additional information section. Interest is calculated daily and paid on the first business day of the month and at account closure. You’ll be able to see and access the interest in your account on the following day.

Can Isle of Man Bank change the interest rate?

Yes, these rates are variable. They may be changed for any of the reasons set out in Term 10.3 of the Personal Banking Account Terms and Fees, e.g. to take account of Bank of England base rate changes or changes in the rates paid by other banks. If the rates are going down we’ll give you at least 60 days’ notice. If they are going up, we’ll inform you before the change or shortly afterwards. Term 10.4 contains details of the notice we’ll give you.

How much could I earn?

Estimated balance after 12 months based on a range of deposits.

No withdrawals made in any month: bonus condition is met

One withdrawal of £50 made each month: bonus condition is not met for the whole year

These are only examples and do not take into account your individual circumstances. They assume that no further deposits or withdrawals are made; there is no change to the interest rates; and any interest earned stays in the account.

How do I open and manage my account?

  • You must be aged 16 years or over to open an account.
  • You must already have a current account with us, or apply for a current account with us at the same time as opening your savings account. 
  • You can only have one Premium Saver account in your sole name, and only one Premium Saver account in joint names with another person.
  • You can open and manage your account in branch, online and by telephone.
  • No minimum deposit is required to open the account; no minimum deposit needs to be made on a regular basis; and there is no maximum balance limit.
  • However, to earn the bonus rate of interest in each monthly bonus period, your account balance must be between £25,000 – £1,000,000 and you must not make any withdrawals in that month.

Can I withdraw money?

Yes. No notice is required. You can withdraw money:

  • in branch
  • by transfer to any other account based in the UK (online, by telephone or on the mobile app)

There are daily limits on the amount you can transfer from your account online, by telephone or mobile banking.

The current daily limits and how to withdraw more than them can be found on this website or by contacting telephone banking.
