Barclays Direct Closing Down Inactive ING Direct Accounts

At Help Me To Save I like to write about good service from banks, not just about bad. I received a letter from Barclays Direct, who took over ING Direct, advising me that as my account had been inactive for some time, they would automatically close it down. If Barclays Direct hear nothing from me, …

Barclays Monthly Savings Account

As I trawled through savings accounts to find the highest rates of interest, I came across the Barclays Monthly Savings Account. It currently pays a fixed rate of 3.25% for a 12 month period. With the best one year fixed rate savings account paying 2.05%, the 3.25% paid on the Barclays account rate looks very …

Virgin Money Sponsor Edinburgh Festival Fringe

Virgin Money are sponsors of the “Fringe on the High Street”, part of the Edinburgh Festival Fringe. It’s great that sponsorship enables this outdoor performance event to be free. As it was virtually impossible to take a photo of anything without inclusion of at least one Virgin Money logo, brand awareness must be a large …

Norwich & Peterborough E-Regular Savings Account

I’m not that keen on regular savings accounts, where you commit to save a minimum amount every month, usually for a 12 month period, in exchange for a higher interest rate. I have three objections to regular savings accounts. The first is that the monthly deposit is often limited to £250, meaning that you’d end up …

Virgin Offering Higher Cash ISA Rates to Existing Customers

My husband’s Virgin three year fixed rate Cash ISA matures this month. Finding a new home for these savings feels like selecting the best of a bad lot. Virgin wrote to him in good time, offering three fixed rate options for the transfer/renewal of his maturing account: Virgin Fixed Rate Cash ISA Issue 49 (1 …

Review of Nationwide Flex Direct Current Account

I was attracted to the Nationwide Flex Direct current account by the 5% fixed rate paid for the first 12 months. Unfortunately the maximum balance for the 5% rate is only £2,500; you get no interest on anything above the £2,500 threshold. Plus you have to pay in at least £1,000 a month to be …

Review of Nationwide Flex Plus Current Account

I’m not a great fan of premium current accounts, where you pay a monthly fee in order to receive benefits; usually various types of insurance. I’d prefer a pick and mix approach, allowing customer to select the products that best suit their needs. However, when I was researching the Nationwide Flex Direct current account, I …

Is Santander Being Sexist?

I opened a Santander 123 Cashback Current Account a few months ago to take advantage of the 3% it pays on balances between £3,000 and £20,000, a lot more than most instant access savings accounts are paying. I also noticed that Santander started to introduce some savings accounts with pretty competitive rates, which are only …
