    Really? You mean Lloyds didn't reveal it themselves by publishing it on their website last week?
    Did you really mean to put loose?
    Lose: no longer possess, not to retain, unable to find
    Loose: not firmly or tightly fixed in place

    The changes, announced in the small print on the banks' websites and first spotted by sharp-eyed MSE forum users

    This is at least 10 characters long even if MSE doesn't recognise it as such!

    I thought that. Seems very odd to say they can reveal something that is effectively in the public domain by virtue of being published quite prominently on the main current account page of financial institutions.

    To be absolutely fair (and I know its good fun to notice how the forum gets bored of a subject before MSE launch it as breaking news), this other forum thread did appear at 9.29pm on Friday.

    Not working weekends would be a pretty good reason for them to be late on this one.

    Hi niktheguru,

    Many thanks for alerting us to this news.

    I have just checked and I see that Tesco Bank has reduced the 12 month bonus but not the underlying rate. Hence it is 0.55% plus a bonus of 0.63%

    Existing account holders will not be affected and I am still hoping that the BOE will increase the base rate soon and Tesco Bank will likewise increase their underling rate.

    The link below shows the historical rates for the bonus. You will need to scroll down to the internet saver and then click on introductory bonus.
