    Best short term investment??Help needed? 29th May 07 at 8:14 AM
    Hi, I am borrowing 1bout 15k on my CCs, with 0% interest, I can pay off 700/month, but shall I pay minimum every month - about 100 and put 600away in a high interest account? I would put it away every month for about 2 years? I already have an ISA, so whic should be best? what highest interest accounts are there available, and how much can of extra interest can I get?

    If it's 0% interest on the cc, you may as well invest it to get some returns, as long as you can be strict with your finances!
    There's a "stooze" board on here with info on this.

    hi yes it will be on 0%, and I have been stoozing for a while, my question is where to put 600 rather than just pay the CCs off, I may as well put in somewhere to get that extra little bit?

    IceSave? ICICI HiSave? a combination of regular savers eg Yorkshire Building Society RS + others? all high paying accounts.

    If you early repayment is likely/possibly required go with one of the first 2, otherwise the 3rd will pay better but with less flexibility.
