We’ve partnered with ClearBank to bring you an easy-access, FSCS eligible savings account, offering a 1.25% bonus on your savings up to £5,000 (on the ChipAI plan at £1.50 every 28 days) or £2,000 (on the free ChipLite plan).
Starting Monday, we will begin rolling out our Chip+1 accounts to our investors, before going live to all Chip savers.
We want to build the best savings app in the world, so we are diverting our advertising budget directly to our savers by paying this bonus directly, in return for recommending Chip to their friends.
We think you deserve it more than Facebook and Google do.
To unlock access to these accounts, we ask you to invite a friend, or simply be invited.
If you’re already a Chip saver, you can find your Chip+1 account in your accounts tab in your Chip app.
There’s two ways to get into Chip+1:
You can invite as many people as you like to Chip+1, but only one person can get access to Chip+1 using your VIP passcode.
This person is your +1, and will be the first person to sign up using your VIP passcode. You will be able to track their progress and nudge them from your app.
Once you are all set up, you’ll be able to choose to autosave straight into your Chip+1 account!
Of course. It is completely up to you whether or not you want to open a Chip+1 account.
To ensure an even and fair distribution, we’ve decided to take a gradual approach with the release of Chip+1 so everything goes smoothly and we don’t reach capacity on day one.
We’re giving our investors and Chipmunks access to the account before going out to our whole user base.
We have decided to use a referral mechanism to unlock access to this account to further control capacity levels, as well as allowing us to grow our Chip community.
We’ve (probably) answered them in our FAQs here.
