Been a user of their savings accounts for many years. They usually offer both instant access and notice accounts with competitive interest rates. Although their online access is not as slick as some of their competitors, they have a large branch network (at least around the north of England) where most transactions can be done.

Skipton Regular Saver - gave me 5% on up to 6000

Recommended by smithd

I put ?500 per month into my Skipton Regular Saver for 12 months all at 5.0%, and it matured late 2011. This is a great rate - the account was opened via the post with an initial cheque, and subsequent payments were by standing order. Near to maturity the Skipton sent a letter outlining the options - of a fixed term bond or the balance can readily withdrawn. More recently it was necessary to go to a Skipton branch to open this type of account, and in the last few days the account has, I think, been closed to new applications. We have to hope it will be offered again in the future - similar accounts do seem to be launched periodically by the Skipton.

Excellent rate of 5% gross

Only lasts for 12 months

Recommended by Cheesyman

I needed an internet account where I could transfer money in and out completely flexibly and preferably with some interest. This account does the job brilliantly. I use it for home improvements and transferred a lump sum into it and have been transferring money out when required. It pays 2.5% interest and I plan hopefully to use it as a flexible savings account in the future. Once set up, the internet access makes it so easy to use and it works really well for me.

Complete flexibility of money movements and earning good interest.

The web site is not as good as some other banking sites.

Skipton Online Bonus Saver Issue 3 promptly displays payments in

Excellent

Recommended by pimms

This account was simple to open and very straightforward to understand. Payments in are displayed immediately so an accurate balance is always to hand. My only negative is that the description of payments in states only "bank payment" and does not define the specific bank or account from which the credits are sourced. As I potentially make standing orders from different accounts this poses potential confusion.

Simplicity of operation

Insufficient description of source of payments in.

Skipton My Savings accounts 2.5% variable : no bonus-period, no penalties

Satisfactory

  • Customer Service

  • Value for Money

  • Flexability & Fairness

  • Product Features

This account gives a straight 2.5% variable - so there is no sudden drop in rate after some time period - simply because there is no bonus.on this account. Numerous such accounts may be opened, with a specified choice of names, such as "car saver", "holiday saver" etc. I do not think there is any significance to the actual names - they merely serve to distinguish the accounts if you have several. The account can be operated online, can be opened with just ?1, and any withdrawals are penalty free. I opened a MySaver account in the first place because I had some maturing funds from some other Skipton investment, which I could simply transfer to a My Saver account. I could then access this cash, as and when I wished - and transfer some of it to my bank account at some later date. The account does what it says, but at 2.5% the rate is not the highest available for an account with the given features.

Reasonable 2.5% variable. SImple, no-bonus, esy access account

2.5% is not a particularly high rate
