    Santander123 As A Savings Account? 14th Nov 12 at 11:03 AM
    Given the low rates on easy access accounts I've been thinking of converting our Santander current account to a 123 account.

    As I understand it we can get interest of 3%, paid monthly, on credit balance up to 20000, with a 2 a month charge.3% seems pretty good at the moment.

    The only problem is we don't use this account for direct debits and I think you are supposed to have two direct debits set up on it.

    Anyone any experience of opening one without having any direct debits?.
    Waddle you do eh?
