    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!
