Anything Better Than Ing Bank ?

Recommended Posts

I use First Direct, they pay out 5%, but if you make a withdrawal during a month you lose interest. So I still have my ING account which is used as a rainy day account, the First Direct holds my deposit.

I suspect 5% is a promotion and they will go down to 4.75% or less in April 2006. Mind you, it is easy to shunt money around from one internet savings account to another to pick up the best rates at any one time !

Cahoot are giving 5.25% for the first 6 months but then it slides down during the rest of the year.

ICICI are offering 5.15% variable.

Any idea off the top of your head what the rate slides to?

Scottish Widows offer something above 5% i think.

surprised not to see it mentioned here. perhaps i'm missing something.

They do a 5.01% (£50k minimum, although the rate only drops to 4.96% for £25-50k) including a 0.75% bonus for 6 months. Cahoot's account offers a better rate at 5.25% (£15k minimum) including a 0.75% bonus for 6 months, 025% for the next 3 months.

true. still cahoot allow a maximum of 100k. i believe scottish widows has no upper limit.

my point being it's a close second and nowhere to be found on any of the best buy surveys like www.moneysavingexpert.com.

I'd check these guys out first. Fair enough a certain amount of money will be safe under FSA rules but ICICI have a poor S&P credit rating.
