    Santander 123 current account 15th Jan 20 at 4:00 PM
    The above account interest rate is going from 1.5% to 1% in May, yet the monthly fee is staying at 5, and the cashback is getting capped to 5 in each category. Are there any better alternatives out there?

    Have had a good look, and it depends. If you've maxxed the account out (20k), get the cashback from your direct debits then no there aren't really any alternatives, unless you really want to be arsed moving money about 3/4 accounts every month for minimal gain.
