SaveBetter, identified for partnering with smaller regional banks to supply excessive rates of interest on financial savings, cash market, and CD accounts; is “altering” its title to that of its mother or father firm – Raisin.
Raisin GmbH is SaveBetter’s mother or father firm. They’ve been working out of Europe since 1973 and have partnered with ~400 banks throughout 30 international locations. Once they expanded into america, they opted to make use of the title SaveBetter.
Of their present emblem, you’ll be able to see that it’s known as Savebetter by raisin.
It appears to be like like they intend to convey all of it below one model by utilizing the Raisin title.

SaveBetter Is Rebranding to Raisin
That’s the essential gist – the corporate is popping the emblem from:
And altering it to:
Savebetter as a model will successfully be gone.
What Will Change?
From the appears to be like of it, there gained’t be any vital adjustments to what you get as a buyer. You continue to get greater charges via accomplice backs through pooled deposit accounts.
Since that is solely a rebranding, the web sites you go to will change and the names and pictures will change. As a substitute of SaveBetter and its emblem, you’ll see Raisin and its emblem.
We’ve acquired phrase that Raisin might be constructing an app and that might be launched someday in the course of this (2023) yr. SaveBetter doesn’t have an app proper now, which places it just a little behind different banks, however because it’s strictly a financial savings account, not having an app hasn’t hindered it to date.
It might be good to have one although, as it will make it simpler to maximise your rate of interest.
Aside from the forthcoming app, this alteration is usually beauty. You’ll see adjustments within the web site URL, as an alternative of going to SaveBetter.com, you’ll be going to Raisin.com/en-us – all fairly customary adjustments in a rebranding.
Why Are They Doing This?
Raisin is well-known within the UK and Europe so I believe they needed to construct up a single model, fairly than construct up two names – SaveBetter in america and Raisin in Europe.
They’ve raised an incredible quantity (most lately a €60 million Sequence E in March) and it appears prudent that you just’d wish to put all of your advertising and marketing and funding right into a single model, fairly than splitting it up.
Personally, I just like the title SaveBetter over the extra generic title of Raisin however what do I do know? 😂
What Ought to I Do?
In case you are a SaveBetter buyer, there isn’t something to do. Your cash is with accomplice banks and incomes rate of interest. If you happen to’re proud of that, there isn’t something you want to do.
If you happen to aren’t a SaveBetter buyer, this alteration doesn’t affect our opinion of them as an organization, the protection of your funds, or the standard of their providing. In actual fact, with an app, the providing is trying to enhance just a little bit.
