When you save with us, you are building a savings history showing what you can afford to save every month. This makes it much easier for you to see what you can afford to borrow.
With the Save & Borrow Loan you could borrow up to 4 times what you have saved after 6 months.
Step 1 - Build your savings
Save into any regular savings account in PTSB.
Step 2 - Borrow if you want to
After 6 months you could borrow up to 4 times your savings. This is subject to the normal lending criteria and terms and conditions.
Even if you don’t plan on borrowing money, that’s no problem. It is just good to know you have a great back up plan should anything crop up.
You may be thinking that loan seems great, but what is a lien?
It’s simple. It’s the amount of your savings that are held by the Bank as security against the loan. While the loan is still outstanding, no withdrawals can be made from those savings.
Once the loan has been repaid then the lien will be lifted and the savings will be available. If the loan is not repaid then the savings held in lien can be offset against the balance due.
The minimum savings amount is €70 a month. The minimum loan amount is €1,500 and the maximum loan amount is €6,999 based on needs, savings history and lending criteria.
If your loan application is successful we will lien your savings for the duration of the loan as security for the loan.
Once the loan is repaid in full, the deposit lien will be removed.
The rate is 13% APR variable for loans under €7,000.
Our Save & Borrow loans have a variable rate which means that the rate can change from time to time under this credit agreement. This means that your loan repayments could go up or down during the term of your loan.

Warning: If you do not meet the repayments on your loan, your account will go into arrears. This may affect your credit rating, which may limit your ability to access credit, a hire- purchase agreement, a consumer-hire agreement or a BNPL agreement in the future.
