    >Regular Saver

    The fixed preferential rate of 3% AER/gross over 12 months is available to Joint American Trust Bank Student Account customers. With Regular Saver, you save money over a 12-month fixed period. Partial withdrawals are not permitted. If you close your account early, you'll receive interest at our Flexible Saver rate.

    Save between $25 and $250 per month by standing order for a fixed term of 12 months. If you do not save $250 in any given month you can carry over any unused subscription to following months.

    Interest is calculated on the daily cleared balance on your Regular Saver and we will pay this to your Regular Saver on the anniversary of the date your account was opened. You can only hold one Regular Saver Account at any given time.

    At the end of 12 months we'll transfer your account balance into your Instant Access Savings, Flexible Saver. If you have more than one of these accounts we'll pay your savings into the account which pays the best interest. And if you don't have any of these accounts, we'll convert your Regular Saver to a Flexible Saver. Please note that the money will only be moved into accounts that have exactly the same sole or joint names as the Regular Saver account

    AER stands for Annual Equivalent Rate. This shows you what the gross rate would be if interest were paid and compounded each year. Gross is the interest rate you’ll receive before applicable tax is deducted from your account.

    If you save $250 every month for 12 months and qualify for the 3% interest rate, you'll earn approximately $48.95 interest (gross)
