    The Tesco site says 1.28% not 1.3% has it gone down?

    Yes it changed today, the 1.30% was only available for 7 days. You gotta be quick with Tesco, they've changed the rate 11 times this year already

    After only 7 days Tesco have raised the rate on the Internet Saver to 1.30% again. Might be of interest to some but I wouldn't hang about

    People who are deciding to open the Tesco Internet Saver, what will you be using it for? Trying to distinguish a purpose if I do open it

    Getting one fifth of one percent more than the previous offering, ain't that enough?

    Bear in mind that the bonus will drop off after 12 months which will bring it down to 0.55%. Also note that the interest is paid annually with the basic rate (currently 0.55%) paid in March and the bonus paid 12 months after opening.

    Regarding the post office online saver 1.33% gross for a year, i applied on line,was given an account ID etc. When i logged back in there was no sign of an online saver just a statement saying balance on accounts 0.

    Does it take some time to set up?

    Thanks
    Feudal Britain needs land reform. 70% of the land is "owned" by 1 % of the population and at least 50% is unregistered (inherited by landed gentry). Thats why your slave box costs so much..

    I'm well aware of the issues many posters have with withdrawals, and the interest rate is irrelevant to me. However, it serves a purpose

    Why would there be problems with withdrawals? I used to have an online saver with them a few years back and didnt encounter any issues? The only thing i dont like about the PO and Tesco is that they dont seem to use FP or at least not instant,usually 24 hours..

    I believe the Post Office use the Bank of Ireland, which presumably isn't in the Faster Payments scheme.

    Don't try transferring from Tesco late at night, eg c.23:30. Payment doesn't go through, and gets returned to your account by the next morning!

    For some reason even for existing customers it takes a few days before you can move any money out of the account. You have to wait for them to complete their checks. Tried ringing them tonight to speed it up but gave up after 30 minutes in a queue.
