For example if I save 10000 pounds at 2.89% I would get 289 at the end of the year, so if I get interest monthly would I get 289/12, 24 quid every month? Read More

How is interest calculated? I think you would get about £293 extra as you are earning interest on the sums in the account. Therefore if they pay you interest monthly that interest is added to the account and you earn from that also.

depends on the account - which one is it?

I see, so the interest will show after 1 month will it?

It will if it is calculated and added monthly. You will need to see the details of the saver. If you send me a link of the saver you are looking at I am happy to have a look.

If you are talking about the Natwest e saver, don't forget after 12 months the interest falls to 1%
