    MSE showed some good ones from Skiptons not so long ago.

    My ISA dropped from 5.5% last year to 0.5% this year, fail. Lost out on like £250+.

    what is a good rate? i see some offering like 6% you have to pay in 10-100 per month or rates like 2.2% which are supposed to be good too?

    is the 2.2 one better than the halifax in terms of putting in a bulk amount e.g 500 at once?
    or should i do the 100 per month with halifax after a year switch to another?

    well the 6% one is 0.5% a month

    1st month its 0.5% on £100
    2nd month it 0,5% on £200
    3rd month its 0.5% on £300 etc,etc

    other is the full 2.2% on the £500 so ide say the halifax unless i got that completely wrong

    my mistake

    GentleTouch;7607429

    so the 2.2 would be 2.2 in a year = 500 to 610not bad for a yearanyone … so the 2.2 would be 2.2 in a year = 500 to 610not bad for a yearanyone maths better than mine decide which is better? just saying 500 100 per month first 5 months then 10 per month after for arguments sake which would be better?



    No, 2.2% of £500 is £11. so £511. You did 22%.
