    Best place for cash? 31st Dec 17 at 11:28 AM
    I am getting my AVC in January. It's about £13000 and I intend to put about £9000 in my two TSB and Tesco accounts to earn 3% from that. Not sure where to put the rest. Possible choices are in my existing S&S ISA or perhaps premium bonds? Any other ideas?
    Cheers!

    If you want to keep it, or part of it, as cash you could look at Nationwide's FlexDirect, 5% on £2,500 for a year, You would also be eligible for the Flexlusive Regular Saver also at 5%

    I do have a Flexdirect though now onto its 1% stage. And have just renewed the Flexlusive regular saver! Typical they drop the amount you can put in it just as I have a bit more spare!

    How about opening First Direct (as long as you can feed the account)? They still have good rate on their regular savings although it's only £300 pm. Or Club Lloyds pay 2% on up to £5k balances and they have a 3% regular saver for £400pm. (minimum pay in £1500 pm and you'll need two active DDs for Lloyds)
