Why should I switch savings account?

With savings rates at an all-time low, it’s more important than ever to make sure you’re getting the best return available.

Most money on deposit in Ireland is kept in demand accounts earning as little as 0.01%, or one hundredth of one percent. This is known in banking terms as "sleeping money" because it is not earning for the account holder. Finding the best savings account through bonkers.ie is quick and straightforward and you can begin improved interest within a few days.

Example: A customer with €10,000 in a standard demand account earning 0.01% will earn just €1 per annum. Switching to an improved demand account earning 3.10% will earn €310 per annum. €10,000 in a standard demand account earning 0.01% will earn just €1 per annum. Switching to a high yield demand account earning 3.10% will earn €310 per annum. If you are prepared to look.

What do I need to change savings account or open a new account?

Opening a new savings account is simple and straightforward and you can start your application through bonkers.ie for most accounts. Banks are required to verify the identity of a new account holder so copies of your personal identification may be required. A copy of your driver's licence or passport will generally be accepted.

You may also need to provide proof of address, which can usually be done with a utility bill, insurance statement or any document issued by the revenue commissioners.

Finally, you'll need to provide your PPS number along with a document that verifies it like a P45, P60 or a Social Services Card.
