2% cashback at drawdown is paid into the customer’s mortgage paying account (which does not need to be a permanent tsb account) within 40 working days of mortgage drawdown. The qualifying period (11 January 2016 until 31 December 2020) may be extended as permanent tsb decides.

The following payments do not qualify for cashback: cash, cheque, bank draft, electronic funds transfer, debit/credit card, manual Direct Debits, Standing Orders set up by the customer, lump sum payments, and returned or arrears payments. If any changes to the billed monthly mortgage repayment are made they must be agreed by both you and permanent tsb to be eligible for the cashback monthly offer.

If either the Explore Account or the Mortgage is terminated for any reason then the monthly cashback will cease.
