Personal experience. Is it possible to replace the contribution of the savings account?

Igor D. from Moscow enjoys savings accounts for several years. First it was the Bank account "the Messenger" (stripped of his license in 2015), who became a pioneer in this segment.

In 2012, Igor became a client of Tinkoff Bank. When this Bank appeared a similar product, he also began to use it. Interest is accrued on the average monthly amount in the account. The Bank rate on such savings account is 4%. Compared to savings accounts in major state-owned banks, this rate is slightly higher.

Igor does not like to "freeze" the money on Deposit therefore, such a storage format of media suits it. Money it is often right at any time and in unexpected volume, therefore, the savings account, he keeps the amount of one million rubles and more. However, if it appears the amount it has guaranteed not to use in the next year or two, he periodically chooses a classic Bank Deposit. The main reason for deposits you can find rates higher than savings accounts.

Since last year, Igor keeps the money in the savings contribution of Gazprombank. It has no differences from a savings account, only a minimum balance of 15 000 rubles. The rate is 3.7%. As a major Bank, in this Igor is stored more than a million rubles. On account of Tinkoff Bank, a few hundred thousand rubles.

the Experience of using a savings account Igor was and Alfa-Bank. However, the system of accrual of income it is more difficult. The rate increases as finding money in the account. That is, the first three months, she may be one, even after some time increases, and then increases again only after 12 months becomes maximum. If you withdraw money from the account, and then again to replenish it, this calculation starts from zero. Interest is charged on the minimum amount that was on account within calendar month. If 29 days you have in the account was 100 000 rubles, and the last day of the month was 1,000, then the interest will be charged 1 000.

In the end, the main convenience of the savings account for Igor is the ability to Deposit and withdraw money, many times without restrictions. Most importantly, he believes, to ensure that the percentage charged is transparent.
