adding some diversity to the market, which is welcome.
it's all about the best deal with a platform though.

Marcus savings interest rate is now down to 1.35% for new customers; they appear to have discontinued the 0.10% bonus. I gave up waiting for a better incentive and joined last month, so still have 11 months bonus remaining, however it's another little squeeze on savers.

Good move. Contact support to ask them how to close the account.

I see Marcus Bank are stating: "Applications are currently closed" :think:

Marcus have a 1 Year fixed rate (1.00%) available now instead of the easy access account.

NS&I Direct Saver pays the same, so could be a better option if you need that type of account.
