Mods if this is not the correct place can you please move it for me.



I don't think it's worth locking your money away at this rate for 5 years, especially if there are 'green shoots' emerging. I think there's still an offer for 4.8% for a year which was posted on here last month, that might still be available

Agreed, locking your money at what would normally be a fairly standard rate, over a period of 5 years is, IMHO not a good move - but I'm not a fortune teller.

Better to stick with a good rate for a couple of years, and then see what rates are out there - hope in a 2 or 3 years rates will be nomalised again, and better interest rates should be out there.

It is an excellent rate - far higher than anything else on the market. Still - 5 years is a very long time and a bit of a gamble (though I wish I'd gambled on a 3 year rate this time last year - the rate then was 7.20%). For some people, to guarantee 5.40% for 5 years is great - and of course you would get this rate in each of the 5 years. At present, the best fixed rate available for a year is around 3.6%, accessible rates are far lower. This is a hot deal - but, sadly, not for me.

Hot from me but I do live in Barnsley :whistling:


Please note the Barnsley Building Society is now part of the Yorkshire Building Society which is better than what it was 12 months ago.
