Earn monthly interest on your credit balance by adding Vantage.

Vantage is our free add-on for Classic and Platinum accounts that pays you 1.5% AER (1.49% gross) variable on balances of £1 - £5,000. Vantage can also be added to existing Bank of Scotland Silver, Gold, and Premier accounts.

No interest paid on balances over £5,000. To qualify, each calendar month simply pay at least £1,000 into your account, stay in credit (above £0) during the monthly billing period, and pay at least two different Direct Debits from your account. If in any month you don’t meet these criteria, you won’t earn any interest but you won’t be charged for having Vantage.

Please note: From the 1st October 2019, we will be changing the interest you can earn on accounts with Vantage. The current interest rate of 1.5% AER/1.49% annual gross variable, payable on balances from £1 up to £5,000, will reduce to:

  • 1% AER / 0.99% annual gross variable on balances from £1 up to and including £3,999.99 and will increase to
  • 2% AER / 1.98% annual gross variable on the part of any balance from £4,000 to £5,000

Provided you meet the qualifying conditions for credit interest. For details of this change please see the Vantage guide (PDF).
