Save on autopilot with Round Ups

Introducing smooooooth saving. Turn on Round Ups to save money behind-the-scenes – without really trying.

What is Round Ups?

Save little and often, while you spend. Every time you buy something on your Starling personal, joint or business account, we’ll round up your spending to the nearest pound and add the spare change into your Space of choice. For example: spend £2.80 on a coffee and we’ll round it up to £3.00.

To reach your goals even faster, try multiplying the spare change you save – increase to x2, x5 or x10 in your app. You can also top up your Space with one-off or scheduled payments.

Once you’re ready to crack open your savings, just transfer money from your Space to your main account, and you’re all set for a Round Ups pick-me-up.

How do I activate Round Ups?

For existing customers:

Head to ‘Spaces’ at the bottom right of your app.

Create a new Saving Space or choose an existing one.

Click ‘Manage Space,’ then ‘Round Ups’ and switch the toggle on.
