    I hope everybody's applications get sorted eventually...

    The 1.45% has just been pulled.

    It now pays tiered rates of interest - 0.2% AER variable on amounts under £1,000, 0.55% AER variable on £1,000 - £25,000 and 0.9% AER variable if you've £25,000+.

    The new rates DO NOT apply to the 1.45% variable if you already have it and it remains at 1.45%.

    Thanks, I guess they were probably inundated but those new rates

    It still appears on the website and allows you to initiate the application process (which it wasn't doing for a while last weekend).

    One more step down the road....letter arrived today requesting cheque and no need for further documentation to prove who I am. I should think not seeing BH is owned by BoS and my linked a/c is also BoS!
    Plan to get the cheque in the post tomorrow, so there will the w/e delay for starters!!
    and then seemingly I am going to be waiting to actually get into the a/c...

    Just realised I have actually been in the right place at the right time, for once! (as far as interest rates are concerned)
    Being polite and pleasant doesn't cost anything!

    If you found my posting helpful please hit the "Thanks" button!
    Thank You

    I guess it cant be as no-one would be daft enough to use one that is (and behave in this odd manner) for fear of identification of their behaviour on here and that institution taking umbridge and them starting account closures.

    Received letter today confirming my account number. Sent back a cheque with my opening balance.

    Now the fun should start.
