    Barclays Launching 7.75% One Year Fixed Rate Monthly Saver On 2nd June 28th May 08 at 1:24 PM
    "Customers can pay in between 20 and 250 per month, up to a maximum of 3000 over the 12 month term. After a year the balance will automatically switch to a savings account with instant access paying a competitive rate of interest.

    Monthly Savings customers are not required to open or maintain any additional products with Barclays, and they have flexibility to miss or change a payment. Customers have the flexibility to withdraw money, with interest rates reducing to 3.03% AER/2.99% gross p.a. in any month in which a withdrawal is made. "

    Thanks BLF. The E savings account looks good (BOE + 0.25% for 12 months) - as a home for HSBC/FD reg savings amounts - too...

    Thanks - looks a worthy addition to the cash portfolio seeing as how it has flexibility built in as well

    Is that genuine insight .... or a murky crystal ball

    After all their 7% rate has been unchanged for 4 years. But they must be seeing a big exodus as their Websaver, as a feeder account, is now a paltry rate.
    If you want to test the depth of the water .........don't use both feet !

    100% on the cards, TV advertising campaign is being lined up. No doubt there will be plenty of restrictions in place to achieve 10%.

    If that's the case - should I be close my existing RS (7%) now - which rolled over on 7 May? (I can postpone my 'June' payment anyway) in order to qualify immediately?

    Most likely they'll make you take out one of their crummy investment products at the same time.

    Could I suggest that you start a new thread for a new topic (in this case the Halifax regular saver).

    If posts appeared in appropriate threads with appropriate subject lines the forum would become even more useful and searchable. For instance, I get alerted via RSS feeds when a new thread appears.

    Full details are now on the Barclays site, though applying online is easier said than done as the same error message constantly appears at the confirmation stage...

    "We are having difficulty processing your form, please try again later....."

    Hopefully they'll get it sorted soon.
