Customers can sign up for the account online, over phone, or in branch. To benefit from the cashback and interest features on the account customers must pay in a minimum of £1,500 a month and set up two direct debits from the account.

Santander has also launched a new online calculator to help customers compare which Santander current account is best for them. The calculator also compares Santander Edge current accounts to 1|2|3 accounts.

“We know many people are experiencing financial pressures at the moment with the increased cost of the weekly food shop, high energy costs, and other bills going up. Our new Edge Up Current Account is all about making it easier for our customers to make the most of their everyday spending and help them make their finances stretch a little bit further. We have a strong history of providing our customers with innovative accounts and we are pleased to be able to continue this with our new Edge Up Current Account.”

Holders of the Santander Edge Current Account, which launched last November, will also benefit from no fees on debit card use aboard from today. Full details of the Santander Edge Current Account are available on Santander’s website.

The bank is also launching a new Private Current Account offering customers the benefit of all the Edge Up features alongside the continued support of a personal private banking contact. More information on the new Private Current Account is available online.

With the introduction of Edge Up and new Private current accounts, Santander has also announced that the existing 1|2|3, Select, and Private current accounts are being removed from sale today.
