    Bank account without direct debit 9th Sep 17 at 3:19 PM
    I was wondering if there are any bank or building society accounts which would allow you to pay a monthly amount into them, then put same amount back by standing order into my original santander account. But one that doesn't require direct debit payments but does pay interest.
    The reason I ask is because I'm due a redundancy payment and would like to use it as wages until I'm able to find new employment.

    Also TSB - 3% on up to £1500 - £500 credit PCM - register for internet banking
    - opt for paperless statements & correspondence.

    Depending how much capital you are talking about both TSB & NW have regular savers where you can drip feed monthly too.
