    First Direct Regular Saver 13th Oct 16 at 8:28 PM
    Just looking at opening a new Regular Saver account. What do you think of the First Direct Regular Saver? It seems to pay a 5% rate but can't see any mention of it on the MSE pages?

    You need to hold another qualifying account (i.e. Current account) with First Direct to be able to open the regular saver.

    I was also interested in this account. It seems like a good option should you not want to withdraw money for a year. Frustratingly I need the money in 6 months and if I was to take th money out I would only get a SHOCLING
    0.05% interest.

    So open another 5% paying account which doesn't penalise you for withdrawals/early closure.
