The main rate, which for the standard payment package, increases from 1.95 per month to 2.95 euros† In addition to an account at the bank, you also receive a debit card and the option of digital banking.
Customers who want a second bank card, for example for their partner, will pay almost 30 percent more. The rate will increase by one euro to 4.35.
The reason for the rate increases is that the bank is investing a lot to make banking easier and safer. Another reason for asking more money from customers is that the bank spends a lot of time and money tracking down money from criminal customers.
There is even more bad news, on top of the rate hikes. The so-called savings card will disappear. This allowed customers to withdraw from their savings account and log in to bank online. To keep doing this, do they have to take a payment packageif they didn’t already have it.
That applies to about 80,000 of the approximately 300,000 customers with such a savings card, says a spokesperson.
Limit contactless payment up
Even more changes at the bank. From today it is possible to pay contactless for amounts up to 50 euros without having to enter your PIN code. The limit for this was 25 euros.
