5% easy access savings so close now... what a difference a year makes! :crazy:

MSE currently lists this Furness BS account paying 5% at the top of their table, while acknowledging it's really a triple access saver.

A difference is interest rates but just like the bad old days savings are worth less due to inflation despite higher interest rates

i saw a headline on Stocks that The Times were reporting this rate Mac, but i couldn't see beyond their paywall. i wouldn't want to tie up cash for a full 12 months, but it's a handy rate, no doubt.

Santander Easy Access Saver Limited Edition (Issue 3) 5.2%
MSE wrote:Urgent. Ends 11.59pm tonight (Tue). Top 5.2% easy-access savings. The huge top-paying easy-access saver, ie, you can put money in and take it out when you want, Santander's 5.2% AER account (min £1) will see its rate cut to a paltry 2.5% at 11.59pm. Apply before (you can put money in later) and you should earn its full rate for 12mths.

Marcus
If you hold an Online Savings Account or Cash ISA and you have already added the bonus rate of 0.34% gross, your total rate will be 4.60% AER / 4.50% gross.
This change takes effect from today.

No change today at BoE.
In a surprise move, UK interest rates have been left unchanged after the Bank of England said price rises were slowing faster than expected.
