    In the Too late ! Now closed to New Savers section, how about the Target Saver from Ipswich ?
    I have two months left to maturity on mine and had a browse through the T + Cs after reading this post. Under the section entitled, "What happens at the end of the year ?" is the following, "Unless otherwise notified, your Target Saver will remain open, so if you wish to, you can continue with your regular savings on the same terms for a further year."
    To the best of my knowledge, I haven't been "otherwise notified" and as the gross is still in the region of 8.45%, I think I may have another 12 months worth.

    Just spoken to a knowledgeable CS rep at Ipswich in light of what you wrote.
    I have the 8.45% Target Saver, plus the 7.35 and 6.9 as well My last payment goes out on July 2st. At maturity they will notify you, but you can keep the SOs going but effectively it will become a second Target Saver 3 at 6.9%. It is only permitted for maturing accounts. In short you will have 2 x 6.9% accounts. However, you cannot walk in off the street and open up a 2nd account, it is only for those who already have a maturing account. Your lump sum of £3,000+ will automatically go into a Premier 30 account and you can take the money out, do what you want with it from then on.

    how many regular saver accounts do people have?
