    Regluar savings or top up easy access 2nd Oct 17 at 11:45 PM
    Hi, is it better to put £250/month into a regular savings paying 2% or put the £250/month into an easy access paying 1.3%? There must be a calculator and/or spreadsheet somewhere. Thanks ~ Mike

    Well 2 is bigger than 1.3 so you don't need a calculator for that. There are 5% regular savers available

    Here's a calculator anyway

    Only one calculation needed. Is 2 a larger number than 1.3? Put it in the regular saver!

    Start the 2.0% regular saver.. feed it from the 1.3...

    Where is the 1.3%?
    There are 24 bottles of beer in a crate. There are 24 hours in a day. Coincidence? I think not....
