    I applied for a ICICI HiSave account and am growing moss waiting for it to be up and running! Does it do everything it's meant to once it's finally open? As well as the delay, the slightly unclear emails don't fill me with confidence. I'm thinking of abandoning the idea and putting my savings somewhere else.

    Just read (paper post) that Coventry BS is dropping the AER on their Easy Access Saver from 1.30% to 1.15% from 18/3/2018.

    I don't really understand why the best buy section of this article doesn't include the first direct regular saver with 5% interest - locked in for a year but I've had one of these every year for the last few years and it beats most other options...

    Max 300 per month and can carry over "allowance" if not used that month - so max saving of 3600 with 5% interest after 12 months.

    That'll be because it's about easy access savings accounts and the First Direct Regular Saver Account is a regular savings account and not an easy access account. Technically you can access your savings quite easily but since you lose most of the interest it's not much use in that department

    It is however the top account in the regular savings account section
