FirstSave Savings Products
Firstsave first came to my notice when i was looking to diversify my savings between a few banks and building societies and i came across the very good savings rates they were offering. Having used them to make a savings investment online i also found them to be far more efficent than a few of the more well known companies i have opened savings accounts with.
as of 17/11/2011 they offer
12 month fixed rate bond requiring a minimum investment of £1,000
An easy Access account requiring a minimum investment of £100
Firstsave 90 Days notice savings account requiring a minimum investment of £100
Firstsave 30 Days notice savings account requiring a minimum investment of £100
With the recent reduction in savings products it is nice to see a new entrant setting the benchmark for the highest savings rates.
