What is Savings Account Interest Calculator
Savings Account Interest calculator is a free online calculator that helps you to calculate interest in your Bank’s Savings Account. This will help you to make an estimate about how much interest you can expect from savings account based on your balance, interest rate and number of days you are able to maintain balance in your account.
It is important to note that Interest in your savings account is calculated daily on the lowest balance using simple interest.
So in case you make a debit (withdraw money) on a particular day, the lowest balance in your bank account will be realized and interest will be calculated on lowest balance on that day.
In case of credit (Deposits), the lowest balance will be before the credit was made and hence the new balance after deposits will be considered from next day for interest calculation.

How Calculator works
Most important question is how Savings Account interest calculation works? Is there anything you need to know apart from the information I have given till now.
So if you are curious to understand how interest is calculated in your savings account, you need to do some math so that we can learn it in a better fun way!
2 points to consider:
- Interest is calculated daily in your savings account
- Lowest balance is considered for that day’s interest calculation
Let’s take an example: Let’s say your Bank Balance is Rs. 1 Lac, interest rate is 3% and number of days = 10 for which you want to know how much interest you’ll get with these numbers. Below are the steps to perform:
- Divide your annual interest rate by 365 to get 1 day interest rate
- So 3% / 365 days = 0.00822 (day’s interest rate)
- Now since we have day’s interest rate, we can easily calculate one day interest using below formula
- Interest = Balance * Day’s Interest Rate / 100 = Rs. 1,00,000 * 0.00822 / 100 = Rs. 8.21
- This amount can then be multiplied by number of days to get total interest amount for those days – Rs. 8.21 * 10 = Rs. 82.1
And this is what we see in our calculator as well: Amount rounded off
Tips to increase Savings Account Interest
So now you have understood how to calculate interest in your savings account, you would be wondering is there any tips or tricks to maximize interest amount in your savings account?
There is one! Thank me later when you implement it in your real life.
The tip to maximize interest amount in savings account is to keep the balance for more number of days and withdraw only when it is required. Let’s say you want to withdraw Rs. 1 Lac and need it after 2 weeks, then you should delay the withdrawal process to at least a week or more so that you get interest amount on the money you are supposed to withdraw for those extra days.
It looks like it will be small interest money for small amount of withdrawals, but in case you plan to withdraw amounts in lacs, you can delay it for sure until it is required to gain additional interest money for few more days 🙂
