PureSave Account: Same product, better features

A savings account is ideal if you want to keep your money for your future needs, but it’s even better when it helps you grow your money and lets you use it for whatever you need today. When you open a PureSave Account, you get the best of both worlds: transacting and shopping today and savings and earning interest for tomorrow.

A PureSave Account is an all-in-one money management solution that helps you earn interest on your savings and gives you the freedom and flexibility to use it for your day-to-day purchases and payments, like buying airtime and data or sending Instant Money. All this and you don’t have to worry about a minimum opening deposit.

How does a PureSave Account work?

Usually, you’d only use your transactional account for your everyday payments, and if you wanted to grow your money by earning interest, you’d have to open a separate savings account.

A PureSave Account lets you do both: saving and transacting within the same account, without having debit orders or paying monthly management fees. It also helps you grow your money by earning a competitive interest rate of up to 2.5%*, and you have anytime access to your money without penalties. Putting you in control of what your money is doing and where it’s going.

A PureSave Account is easy to open. You don’t even need a minimum amount to open it and you can get your salary paid directly into so that you can safely and conveniently use it for all your daily banking needs.
