    Agreed - what a waste of time and effort for all concerned. I will be transferring everything out on the 5th.

    I wonder if whoever came up with the idea will ever have to account for the administration costs and the loss of goodwill from all of us that see our time as being wasted.

    I know there was some confusion regarding closing these accounts. Nearer the time if they insist on writing in, this may be useful:

    Remember that there is a daily withdrawal limit of £20k so you might have to start moving money out earlier.

    Also, given that the interest rate can already be beaten it is probably worth moving your money now rather than waiting.

    [STRIKE]I'm leaving it for a potential switching bonus but [/STRIKE]near emptied my account last night into a 1.44%(nla* to new applicants) Birmingham Midshires.

    CBA earlier for 0.19% but, as I will when it cuts, may as well do it now.

    PS BM have updated their security... if it's been a month or so since you logged in, prepare to be locked out.
    Phone and if you then pass security checks they send you a procedure & token to re-set your security.

    Edit - it's a savings account...doh! Ta Derrick
    *NLA - No longer available

    Do you have any details on the Birmingham Midshire 1.44% account, I can't find anything on their website about it or anything that comes close.

    It's a savings account, not liable for CASS.
