    Santander 123 accounts

    Santander 123 accounts 12th Oct 16 at 4:39 PM
    Just seeing if there's a simple answer on here before I chase it with Santander but,
    I have a joint account and a single 123 account. Both have about 22000 in them yet for some reason one has about 50 a month interest and one 48! They're the same account and interest is supposed to be 3% up to 20000 so how can it be different when there's always over 20000 in them?
    I'm not talking about any other interest other than the 3% on 20 grand!
    Thanks

    I suspect your anniversary dates on the 2 accounts are different. On a 30 day month the interest is 48.xx and on a 31 day month the interest is 50.xx
    I assume the interest varies on a monthly basis on each of the accounts?
