    I have a Club Lloyds Premier account. It would have been nice if Lloyds had bothered to inform their customers of this rather than let them read about it here first.
    I assume this has been verified as true as the website is still advertising the 4%. Rather misleading to potential new customers if the rate is to drop within the next 3 months.

    with tsb doing the same,5%>3%, and only £1500, I will just shut them all down, p*** poor rates, not worth the hassle.
    In all combined, the saving is peanuts, won't have to bother with all the dd's with other bank then, as they will be next,T, on their current a/cs.
    sign of the times
    updating.my paper work is going down drastically

    I suppose LLoyds A/c will have to be cancelled in writing, because of the fee, waived if monthly payment met??
    looks likes a new car instead.

    In one way it'll benefit me because I'll earn 2% per month instead of 1% like I am at present.

    However it's a massive blow for those who get 4% between £4-£5,000.

    Tesco Bank still offer up to 3% on balances up to £3,000-I wonder if they'll be next in line?

    Just what we need. I migrated to both Halifax reward and TSB from my interest-less HSBC account this year. This combined with the drop in the value of the pound is devastating for savers.

    Bank of England is rapidly becoming useless, cutting rates and printing money through QE like no tomorrow reducing the value of what little money we have left.

    Carney should be fired.

    Mark Carney backed remain and he and MPC decided to cut rates when there was absolutely no need. If they were doing their job as they should be with the pound down and inflation going up they should have raised rates as would have occurred in the past - but that might see house prices fall which now seems to be the only thing they care about.

    Carney should be got rid of ASAP - his policies have been a disaster and are destroying pensions and saving and creating a Ponzi scheme economy built on house prices and a bubble stock market,
    PS people were told rates would rise If they voted leave!

    How does that work? They send out a mailing to over a million customers phased over a few days. You get your letter in the first phase and rush to MSE to tell the world. I get my letter a few days later.

    You'll get two months written notice of the change. The press have just given you slightly more advance warning.

    Not a problem, is it?

    I'm sick of the bloody letters, telling me the rates are dropping.
    just had one this minute,halfax, isa, now 0.05% instead of 0.25%, which another letter told me yesterday.
    they come daily, just like junk.
    If only they were as good at dealing with your affairs.

    Were were pushing Thresea May to trigger article 50 - hardly evidence of 'stopping us leaving'.

    Had a German friend over the weekend and she said it was one of bemusement but they weren't that bothered either way. She said it's sometimes best to jettison the high maintenance lover...
