This is true. still listed as available till Sept 2017 on their site.

Plant - As for switching Accounts - i would move quick of any switching incentives on offer as no doubt they will be next in line when they have stripped every percentage point they can off savings rates.

Didn't you get a warning from the kennel Club about that?

TSB Classic Plus interest rate & balance changes now in effect; so it's time to withdraw at least £500 from these accounts...

good reminder Sarah.
i will just knock it down with my round robin. i don't need to leave £250 for the regular saver or £100 for spending behind either.. in effect it's just a £1500 Savings Account now.

when I go to account benefits currently on my accounts it says
Change to Classic Plus and earn an attractive rate of monthly interest on balances up to £2,000.

With the TSB balance reduction, plus my Lloyds and Ipswich regular savers coming to an end soon, I've got an excess of cash without any "high" interest places to stick it.

All my money needs to remain instant access (or near instant) as possible - I'm (still, three years later) looking to buy a house - living in one of the most expensive cities outside of London hasn't helped with this search.

The highest instant access I have open is 1.05% (which will probably drop soon anyway).

I have the following regular savers open (with staggered maturity dates, to cycle the money), not sure if anyone is aware of anything I may have missed (above 2%)?
Nationwide 5%
Lloyds 4%
Halifax HTB ISA 3.5%
Ipswich BS 3.25%
Leeds BS Issue 3 2.3%
Leeds BS Issue 4 2.3%
Virgin e-Issue 1 2.25%
Virgin e-Issue 2 2.25%

Also, I'm thinking about putting the excess money back into Premium Bonds. Anyone thought about the same?

Thanks Kev, but I have all the current accounts, well:
Lloyds
Bank of Scotland x3
TSB x2
Tesco x2
Halifax Reward

Also had Nationwide, but my year ended. No Santander, for various reasons.
