Madrid, May 16, 2023 - Today, the digital bank N26 announced the launch of its new N26 Instant Savings account in Spain, offering eligible customers with a Spanish IBAN 2.26% AER (2,26% NIR) on deposits with no conditions of permanence, no minimum deposit amounts required, no additional fees, and no need to have salaries paid directly into the account.

Customers will be able to earn interest on their deposits held with N26 if they hold a personal N26 Standard, N26 Smart, N26 You or N26 Metal account with a Spanish IBAN and meet local eligibility requirements, including being a resident of Spain with a registered local tax ID number. Easily accessible via the Spaces tab within the N26 app, the new N26 Instant Savings functionality will be rolled out to eligible customers in the Spanish market progressively, starting today.
Gilles BianRosa, Chief Product Officer: “As more and more customers choose N26 as their primary bank account over traditional banks, it’s been our priority to expand our product portfolio to offer a more comprehensive range of benefits that help empower customers to have a better relationship with their money. Interest-bearing savings are an important part of this, and it’s exciting to be launching a product that offers one of the most competitive rates in the market today.”
Pablo Reboiro, General Manager for Spain & Portugal: “We’re really proud of how well our Spanish customers have received the N26 product, where we have made conscious efforts to invest in providing an even more relevant local offering over the last years. First we launched accounts with a Spanish IBAN in 2019, and then became the first digital bank to join Bizum last year. Today, we’re proud to launch an Instant Savings account, empowering our Spanish customers to make most of their money simply by using N26.”
Growing strong customer demand and primary account usage in Spain has led the German bank to choose the market as the first in which to launch its new savings offering. N26 intends to progressively expand the availability of interest-bearing savings in its other European markets.
