How LOQBOX works

Build your credit history while you save.

Here’s how it works.

1. LOQBOX is a secure way to build your credit history

You choose to save between £20 and £200 each month, and buy a LOQBOX worth a year of those savings.


2. Your monthly savings become finance repayments

Instead of buying your LOQBOX up front, you use our interest-free finance to pay for it over 12 months. Each repayment (effectively, what you’re saving each month) gets added to your credit history, showing lenders you can responsibly manage finance and boosting your chances of getting better-priced credit.


3. Take control of your finances

While your savings build your credit history, our regular emails help you get to grips with all aspects of the financial system and improve your overall money management.


4. Don’t miss a payment

If you change your mind – or if you think you might struggle to make a payment – you can ‘unlock’ your LOQBOX any time and get back everything you paid so far. We’d rather you did that than miss a monthly payment, which would harm your credit history.


5. Getting your money

When you unlock your LOQBOX, we’ll help you keep saving. We can help you open a bank account or ISA for us to pay your money into. We get paid by our partners for this, which is how we can make LOQBOX completely free for you. Or you can go premium and pay your savings into an existing account for £30.
