Celebrating two years of giving your savings a lift

We’ve been helping you to give your savings a lift for two years, in which time we’ve launched 18 new partner banks (and counting) on our marketplace, a whole heap of savings accounts featuring competitive rates and quite a few bonus offers.

To celebrate, we’ve put together a collection of some of the stories shared with us by the people who have helped us to make Raisin UK what it is over the last two years; our customers. The pandemic means that we can’t do anything special in person and we wouldn’t ask you to take part in an awkward Zoom party, so get yourself comfy, grab yourself a slice of cake and some fizzy pop while we get this celebration started.

Saving for the things that matter

Money is an essential part of our lives, but what really matters is what we do with our money. For some of our customers, saving for something special is important to them, and at Raisin UK, we’re happy to say that we’ve helped many of our customers to achieve their savings goals, including these customers:

“Mainly looking for a safe home for money, prior to building a house extension”

“Following a recent house move, funding work required in the new property.”

With the COVID-19 pandemic affecting us all in different ways, it’s crucial to make sure that your finances are healthy, something highlighted by this customer:

“A couple of projects coming up in the next couple of years and wanted to protect my savings from collapsing interest rates, didn’t foresee the pandemic though.”

We all have our reasons for growing our savings, and while some save for a particular purchase, for many of our customers, it’s essential to build their personal wealth, including this customer:

“Although rates are generally low within the banking industry, I do try and build family wealth with my savings”

Treating yourself with our welcome bonus

One of the many incentives to join Raisin UK is our welcome bonus. Some of our customers see it as a way of getting a better return on their savings, but for some customers, it’s an opportunity to treat themselves to something soon while they wait for their savings to grow. The following bonus spending stories from our customers are some of our favourites:

“A new waterproof jacket – very warm and very waterproof, and being purple, is sort of raisin coloured!”

“I lost a lot of weight last year and dropped three sizes so treated myself to some new pairs of jeans….which I can still get in!”

“I used the Raisin UK bonus of £100 to have additional funds available for my last Christmas celebration, making it a more memorable occasion than the Christmas celebrations of previous years.”

“Some wonderful colourful velvet cushions! I broke my arm badly in November and these have cheered up my sad sofa! Thank you”
