We’re making some important changes: we’re planning for Barnsley Building Society to become Yorkshire Building Society from July 2016.
Read more about these changes.
The product terms should be read with the General Terms and Conditions booklet (General Terms). Together the product terms and the general terms explain how your account works. It is important that you read all the terms before you decide whether to open an account. Terms 10, 11 & 14 of the General Terms and Conditions explain the circumstances in which we may change the interest rates, terms and conditions and
charges relating to your account, and how we will tell you about the changes.
To open an Online Saver you must be aged 16 or over and must be a UK resident. An account can be held in your sole name, or jointly with one other eligible individual.
The Online Saver issue 4, is only available to maturing bond customers
You must maintain a minimum balance of £1 in your account at all times. The maximum balance is £1,000,000.
The rate of interest for the Online Saver is variable. Interest can be added to your account annually on the 31st March or it can be paid monthly on the last day of the month, but must be paid into another Barnsley Building Society account or an external account held with another bank or building society.
You may nominate twelve external accounts for withdrawals to be transferred to and you will also be able to choose up to three other Barnsley accounts to receive transfers from your Online Saver account.
You will be able to check your balance and interest rate and view statements showing transactions on your account whenever you wish. Whenever we change the rate of interest applying to Online Saver, we will inform you by e-mail within 30 days of the change. It is important that you let us know if your e-mail address changes.
As we will advise you of changes to Online Saver interest rate and terms, and generally communicate with you, via email, it is very important that you notify us if your email address changes.
You can change your contact details (postal address, email and telephone) when you are logged in. To change your name you will need to write, enclosing proof of the change, to Barnsley Internet Savings, PO Box 216, Bradford, BD5 5BE.
If you open an Online Saver account and subsequently change your mind within 14 days, we will either transfer your savings to another account with us (subject to the completion of the appropriate application form) or repay them to you with interest earned up to but not including, the day of closure. Contact us for more details.
