    A Brace of Decent Regular Saver Accounts

    I don't think we are going to see the volumes of traffic seen in the Glory Days on this site but I will make a general post pointing out a couple of good accounts.

    The Principality have a 4% Fixed for one year Rate Regular Saver which will take up to ?250 per month. Only catch is you have to have been a member for a year to open one. Supposedly limited edition but it has been around for a while.

    Next best rate (that I am aware of) is the Saffron paying 3.5% Fixed for one year Regular Saver which will take ?200 per month. Anyone can open an account in a Saffron branch or existing members can open it by post.

    The third best is 2.85% at the Ipswich for existing members and locals but that is a variable rate. You can stash ?500 a month though.

    Another catch is that you can only open this account in a branch or agency.

    You are able to apply by post. I did so, because I live miles away from Wales. No problems at all, as long as you are an existing member.

    The need to have a current account with the HSBC, M&S, Nationwide rules them out for me.

    Tell you what. I absolutely, definitely, no doubt about it, 100% guaranteed only pressed "Post Quick Reply" once and yet a double posting? It's not me doing anything wrong!
