    Which Bank Gives The Best Interest Rate On Saving/Current Accounts? 30th Aug 10 at 7:23 PM

    I don't own a credit card, or anything fancy, I'm only 23 and just recently picked up a min paying job, and hate banks to the limits and haven't really dealt with them in some time. (only to pick up my check of have instant money transfers.)

    I have some money stashed away (8,000) and I was just wondering which bank would offer me the best interest, let it be for a savings account or for a current account. I heard some banks can pay up to 10% a month. Is that true? If so, that means 10% of 8,000 = 800... That can't be right, surely.

    Can anyone enlighten me on the subject please? Thanks.
