My partner wants to start saving around £10, whats the best way ISA or just a savings account.

Hopefully all done online through DD from her standard bank account.

Any suggestions please?

    Probably an Abbey Postal ISA is as good as anything for her -- if she's a taxpayer. If not, she would do better with cahoot savings at 5.5%.

    She should set up a standing order so it goes to savings automatically, and then she isn't tempted to spend it instead.
    I have five stars! This doesn't mean that I know anything about any of the things I post. I could be a raving lunatic, or a brilliant genius, or just some guy on the internet. In fact, I could be all three at the same time.

    If anything I say makes sense, then do it. If not, don't. Don't blame me or my stars if you do something stupid because I suggested it. I'm responsible for my own stupidity only. You are responsible for yours.

    Why, I don't even have five stars anymore! Aren't you glad you aren't responsible for my stupidity?
