    MSE News: Got a Marcus savings account? Your interest rate may drop soon... 27th Sep 19 at 12:16 PM
    Savers who opened a Marcus account this time last year are starting to see their interest rate drop - but you can limit the impact through a neat little trick that lets you grab another year's bonus...

    I agree, it's not a 'neat little trick' at all. It is there plain to see for all, in fact Marcus even told me about doing it when I spoke to them recently.

    Hi all. This bonus rate extension "offer" has been withdrawn. I found out when I logged in today to extend my bonus at the slightly lower rate that was on offer a few weeks ago and found it was not available. I called them* and their customer service dept told me it would not be coming back.

    I wish they had warned account holders that this "offer" was about to be withdrawn.

    Many posters renewed the bonus rate on their Marcus account before the rate dropped to 1.45%.

    Some were apparently renewing every few days. Possibly a contributory factor to the withdrawal of that facility

    The rate is now 1.35 for new customers, or those with bonus expired
