🔔 New joint market-leading current account rate

02nd May 2018

Today, TSB has increased the rate offered on its Classic Plus Account to a joint market-leading rate.

This improved rate comes in the aftermath of an IT mishap, which has been widely reported over the last couple of weeks.


The Classic Plus Account has joined Nationwide's FlexDirect Current Account atop our high interest current account best buy table, both paying 4.89% gross / 5% AER .


Interestingly, Nationwide's Flex current account customers are also entitled to open a Flex Regular Online Saver, which again has a market-leading of 5% AER.


Amongst savings accounts, RCI Bank* and Kent Reliance continue to share the top spot in our easy access table, both paying 1.30% gross/AER. 

While Coventry Building Society holds the top two positions in our variable rate cash ISA table with its 30 Day Notice ISA (5) and Easy Access ISA (7), paying 1.35% tax free/AER and 1.25% tax free/AER respectively.


For further information on these accounts and other options currently available, please refer to our best buy tables.

†High interest current accounts often have a number of conditions attached to qualify for the headline rate. Please ensure you carefully read the terms and conditions before proceeding. Many of these current accounts do not require customers to switch their main account.

*We are occasionally paid by some providers if you click through from our Best Buy Tables and open a savings or current account with them. We will never accept a payment that compromises in any way our independent, whole of market approach to providing information on savings products. For clarity we will indicate those companies who remunerate us with an asterisk (*).
