Leeds pays 3.05% on easy access account

A new online easy access savings account launched this week by Leeds Building Society pays interest at 3.05%.

For a minimum investment of £100, savers are offered unlimited penalty-free access to their cash, with no advance notice required.

Kim Rebecchi, Leeds’ director of sales and marketing, said: “A return of 3.05%, combined with the flexibility of online functionality and penalty free access, make this product absolutely fantastic value.”

The catch, however, is that the headline interest rate includes a 1% bonus that only lasts twelve months, ending on 31 July 2010.

Furthermore, the interest rate is variable rather than fixed, making liable to fluctuate either up, or – more likely in today’s climate of low interest rates – down.

Interest on the account is paid annually.

Established in 1886, Leeds Building Society has 70 branches in the UK, Ireland, and Gibraltar.

    Leeds bs have closed the 3.05 % easy access account effective form 22nd December 2012 because they state it is too popular.

    they shouldbe ashamed of themselves and this short notice has cost the ordinary working class a lot of interest loss

    however i dont suppose that they care

    they should be made to pay for this

    Dont trust this company
