    Seriously, is it really worth it for a maximum investment of £3,000?
    It certainly doesn't excite me at the moment, but it might do others...........

    When you've put your £3k in the NS&I Investment Bond you might want another one for the rest of your life-savings. Handily, the top search result from Google is for an Investment Bond which will accept deposits of £250k courtesy of Castle Trust:eek:. Fantastic marketing for them.

    This gives a cracking return of £66 a year. Or £36 a year more than similar competing easy-access savers. :eek:
    I wonder who is the target customer for this.

    That will fund an extra pint of beer every month, nearly.

    My competing easy access account pays 3%, somewhat better than this as well as giving me full current account facilities with instant access, cash and VISA debit card.

    Maybe use Halifax? Then you can get £36 without tying your money up at all.

    People can wait until this time next year: by then the interest might look good or it might look woeful.
    Free the dunston one next time too.
