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. Disappointingly, rate reductions over the same period outshone this figure, with the number of rate decreases standing at 84 – which translates to four cuts to every rate rise – and some deals falling by as much as 0.60%, much higher than the current Bank of England Base Rate of 0.25%.

Morrisons Cheap £10 Battery Powered 200 LED Christmas Lights Review / Personal_Finance / Shopping

By: Anika_Walayat

Just how good are battery powered christmas lights as sold by Morrisons and many others? The obvious attraction is that there is no mains wiring involved so should be relatively easy to put up sets of lights all over the place.

This is a review of a string of 200 LED lights bought from Morrisons for just £10, though don't forget the cost of the batteries (£4), so total cost is £14 which Morrisons promises should last 60 days when on their 6 hour timer. Find out in our test if they at least last for the festive season or not and what do they actually look like in our comprehensive review.

The Sad Truth of Saving for the Future / Personal_Finance / Savings Accounts

By: MoneyFacts

Savers are no doubt aware of the struggle to earn a decent return in the current market. Interest rates are at record lows and there is little incentive for consumers to put money aside, particularly if they have a short-term savings goal. As a result, savers may be facing a savings shortfall for the future.

The latest research from Moneyfacts.co.uk shows the significant difference in the amount of interest on offer today compared to previous years, and how much savers are losing out on.

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

With my forecast for CPI inflation expected to accelerate to over 3% per annum during 2017 and RPI perhaps nudging above 4%. The chancellor Philip Hammond in his first and last Autumn statement took the time to announce a 3 year fixed rate NS&I savings bond paying 2.2% available to all over age 16 from spring 2017. 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!

Consumers should not bury their heads in the sand over debt / Personal_Finance / Debt & Loans

By: Submissions

To coincide with the first ever Financial Capability Week, the Credit Services Association (CSA) has issued some simple guidance around debt, and particularly how to avoid becoming a case of ‘mistaken identity’ and how to resolve the matter should it occur.

·       Keep creditors up-to-date with current contact details: If you move, change phone number, email address, or even change your name, inform all of your creditors, including your Local Authority. Most problems start when a creditor is unable to reach the customer at the last known contact address. This means that vital correspondence might never be received.
