    Nottingham BS - no overnight access?
    If you managed to grab NBS 1.55% ac. note it apparently isn't accessible between midnight and 6:00 am...from log in page:

    "Sorry, our eSavings system is not available at the moment.

    Our eSavings system is usually available daily between 6am and 12 midnight."

    I transferred in some additional funds* earlier and was about to test their w/d process for the first time to find it unavailable after 12:00am...
    Just saying.. for info.

    *BMids 1.44% inc 12 mth bonus ending.

    2.7% easy access account ?
    The MSE weekly email makes a big thing of a 2.7% easy access account - but where is it ?
    The link takes me elsewhere ...

    It is clearly a mistake as there is no easy access account offering 2.7% but I am surprised that MSE would make a big thing of it without the report being proof read.

    PS: The 2.7% is for a 5 year fixed rate account which has the capital sum locked away for the full 5 years.

    Don't know if there was a previous problem. But the link works fine now

    As RG2015 stated. This is not easy access. It's a fixed rate for 5 years

    Tesco are not the only ones playing that game. The Post Office is up to 1.45%, no notice to existing customers on lower rates.

    Look at it this way: each time they increase the rate, you close your old account and get the interest earned to date added to the new account you open, thus compounding early. So the APR is actually higher...

    Unless things have changed recently, to close an account with Tesco, you have to phone them up to do so.
    A bit of a pain in the a------------------

    You should be able to do this online with internet banking.

    It would have been nice to have seen a response from 50Twuncle though.
