    I couldn’t see how to get the £25 welcome bonus-does anyone know how to get that please?
    Click on the '£25 cashback for some' link in this MSE table. Before you do that though, you might want to have a look through the forum for threads on Raisin ;)


    Thanks for the info. I might be off the mark but I’m guessing they’re an absolute shower?
    I've had no problems with them and if you open an account, you can then refer someone for £50 each so big win win for a couple. Just follow Rosie's example of how to do it.

    Noticed that the Atom fixed rates have dropped today. Are people locking in now because of this? 
  • Some will be, some wont. Some won't be driven by what Atom have decided to do.

    Their rates weren't that high to start with, but they're now way off the best. It may only be a matter of time before others drop too though so if you were in the market for a fixed rate now, it could be an idea to do as the article suggests - open one now, hold off funding it and see what happens. I think I'll probably be doing that with some longer fixes today.

  • Hi, if you want multiple bonds with NS&I, do you need different passwords for each bond, or is it the same login details for all bonds.

    All NS&I accounts use the same login
  • I have a fixed rate account which will mature on 6th October with Ford Money.  I've just opened a new fix with Ford as it has a 21 day funding window, so I feel like I've covered my bases.
    Don't wait for your ship to come in, swim out to it.
