UK Current Account Sweeteners That Can Turn Sour / Personal_Finance / Current Accounts

By: MoneyFacts

Current accounts can offer some fantastic perks for switchers or savers, but if consumers failed to grab a top deal last year they would be disappointed to know that some banks have clawed back their perks.

Additionally, using the overdraft facility on some of these accounts over a long period can turn upfront cash sweeteners quite sour. The Current Account Switch Guarantee is well established, following its launch in 2013, but the latest research by Moneyfacts.co.uk can reveal that cash switching incentives, which could be a big enticement to switch, are in fact being cut down.

Rising UK Inflation Means it’s Still a Dreadful time to be a Saver / Personal_Finance / Savings Accounts

By: MoneyFacts

Data from Moneyfacts.co.uk can reveal that rate reductions in the savings market have now outweighed rate rises for 15 consecutive months.

In December, Moneyfacts recorded 21 savings rate rises.

Luckily for Tevez, his lucrative deal has been signed, sealed and delivered before the caps are to be instated. At this stage, Tevez stands to earn £1 every second for the next 2 years.

How to Beat UK Savings Crisis with Child Junior Cash ISA, Pension's and Life-time ISA / Personal_Finance / Savings Accounts

By: Nadeem_Walayat

Britain's spanking new Chancellor, Philip Hammond recently threw some scraps at Britain's hard pressed savers with his 2.2% savings bond due to go live early 2017 by which time the CPI Inflation will be nudging 3% and RPI 4%, which illustrates its just a smoke and mirrors exercise, and even then will be limited to a measly £3k investment fixed for 3 years.

UK inflation is set to soar as I covered in my earlier analysis. And so the chancellors announcement does nothing to prevent the inevitable stealth theft of purchasing power of peoples hard earned savings and wages.

New NS&I 2.2% Savings Bond Ahead of 2017 Stealth Inflation Theft of Purchasing Power / Personal_Finance / Savings Accounts

By: Nadeem_Walayat

Yes 'currently' with RPI at 2%, 2.2% whilst not great sounds reasonable given the desert like landscape of today's savings market. But by the time it actually goes live and becomes available to UK savers, the now near decade long trend of the stealth theft of the purchasing power of peoples earnings and savings will continue which this propaganda bond will not provide any protection against, especially since its capped at just £3k!
