Winners will be selected on 18 October and contacted by 20 October.
Mark Curran, TSB customer banking director, said: ‘TSB has a long and proud history of helping customers to manage their money better and that’s something we remain committed to today.
‘We’re delighted to give TSB customers the chance to win £10,000, to celebrate this important milestone in our history.’
If you have more than one TSB deal, such as a current account and a mortgage, you still only get one chance to win.
TSB customers will be excluded from the draw if:
- They hold an account on behalf of someone under the age of 18;
- They live outside the UK or are registered elsewhere for tax purposes;
- The account has not been used for the past 15 years;
- A TSB account has any legal restrictions or fraud concerns around it;
- The account is about to be closed;
- If you work for a company connected to the prize draw;
- If you only set up a TSB account to test its open banking features.
Last week rival bank First Direct launched a prize draw for current account switchers, with new customers in with a chance of winning one of five £12,500 sums.
The history of TSB
- TSB Bank was originally part of Lloyds Banking Group, formerly Lloyds TSB
- After the banking crash of 2009, Lloyds Banking Group was forced to sell off branches in order to qualify for European Union aid
- As a result TSB Bank was formed by spinning off and renaming several Lloyds TSB branches in 2013, as well as all branches of mortgage and savings firm Cheltenham & Gloucester
- Spanish banking group Sabadell bought TSB in 2015
- This led to a major IT disaster in April 2018 when customers were swapped over from TSB systems to Sabadell ones
- TSB customers were left unable to make payments, log in or contact staff, while some were able to see financial details of strangers and loved ones
- TSB was fined nearly £50million for the IT meltdown in 2022
