    It's no secret and well known to anyone with more than a passing interest in this forum. There's a very prominent and long-running thread about it.

    Anyone know if Birmingham Midshires, new top account, allows you to schedule payments from the account to a linked current account?

    Yes you can set withdrawals up 30 days in advance, so I set up mine for the whole month.

    Tesco have raised the rate on the Internet Saver again to 1.34%. They seem to be creeping up by tiny increments every week

    Coventry Building Society raised their Limited Access Saver interest rate from 1.35% to 1.4% today, 24th July. That's only 18 days after the last rate rise from 1.3% to 1.35% on 6th July. Each time they change the rate they send out a letter to the account holders, so they must have wasted some money on two changes in such a short time period.

    Best savings rates
    Have just found CASTLE TRUST paying 2.5% for one year and 2.5% for two years. Anybody else had experience with them? Just a bit concerned when it said "If becomes insolvent may lose your money"!
    Is this the same with all savings accounts? or just trusts-I don't know.

    Castle Trust is not a savings account and there is the potential for loss

    Opening a Birmingham Midshires Easy Access account should come with a health warning that it'll take at least a full month from application to account activation. Insane...

    I can't see anything to indicate they intend to apply the increase to existing accounts... or not.

    Interesting - CovBS CS has just informed that that they will apply the new rate to the existing LA savings accounts. Great for me, I'd opened one t'other day.

    When asked if I should wait until Sep 1 to open a 2nd as it will be at the new rate for a year from then - she said it is no longer available.

    A new version is to be launched ...... at 1.4%!

    Well... I suppose it rewards existing customers..

    Looks like it will apply to existing accounts. Limited Access Saver, Year 1: Currrent rate 1.40%, new rate 1.55%. That looks clear enough to me.
