1. KBC Extra Current Account

Important Information
Lending criteria, terms and conditions apply. Only one Extra Current Account can be opened in sole or joint names. If you don’t make the monthly lodgement of €2,500, you will have to pay the quarterly fees and charges as set out in the Fees and Charges Booklet. If you recommence making the monthly lodgement, you will be eligible for the benefits from the beginning of the next quarter.

2. Extra Regular Saver Account & Extra 12 Month Fixed Rate Account

Important Information

The Extra Savings Accounts can be opened in sole or joint names. The name(s) on these accounts must match the names on the Extra Current Account. If you don’t make the monthly lodgement of €2,500 or if you close your account, you will lose any benefits associated with these accounts. These accounts will become the standard version of the accounts and the applicable interest rate will apply (This is the rate at the time of investment in the case of the Extra 12 month Fixed Term Account).

If the balance on Extra Regular Saver reaches €40,000, the full balance will earn interest at the then prevailing Standard Demand Deposit Account interest rate. When the Extra 12 month fixed term account matures, the full balance will be reinvested in a similar product unless we receive alternative instruction from you. If you choose not to reinvest, the funds will only be paid into your Extra Current Account. AER is the Annual Equivalent Rate. Interest is subject to Deposit Interest Retention Tax (where applicable). For more information refer to the Personal Banking Terms and Conditions and Personal Deposit Rate Matrix.
