    A trick.?.

    Quietly enjoyed by so many for years.

    Until someone put it on the megaphone.

    Oh well. That will be in the new ISA season anyway so time to stick some cash in a robo fund or similar.

    Not surprised the interest has been cut but happy enough that the 2% is being applied up to £5,000, unlike others which have restricted the new interest to smaller amounts.

    Swings and roundabouts. Maybe it's time for me to spend some money!

    Doesn't bode well for the odds of the Tesco account coming back!

    You can get 2% at Atom Bank for a one year term without the hassle of minimum monthly pay-ins or direct debits. Can't see an upper limit either though you wouldn't want to risk more than the protected £85,000. You only have a 7 day period in which to pay in funds but as you can open as many of these accounts as you like that doesn't really matter.

    Three Santander accounts with £60,000 at 1.5% and a £5 fee or three of these accounts paying 2%? Seems a no brainer.
