    Savings Champion 20th Mar 17 at 1:01 PM
    I used this website to look at best savings rates and the Rate Tracker section to consolidate all my savings. I thought it was very good but 7 months ago my Rate Tracker login stopped working soon after I had added a new savings account. I spent all my working life in IT before I retired and immediately thought that I had blown a limit in the program for the number of accounts. I was told that other people had the same problem and that the IT system was being upgraded in approxiimately 6 weeks. However, despite many emails to and from the company I am still not able to get into the application and am still locked out! Does anybody else use Savings Champion Rate Tracker and had a similar problem?

    I've seen Savings champion mentioned many times in articles and it seemed a bit pointless to me as it didn't show any of the accounts paying the best rates which appeared to be the whole purpose of it. Unfortunately as a result I've not used it since.

    Remember the saying: if it looks too good to be true it almost certainly is.
