Leeds Building Society's Diamond Saver instant access account, which pays a highly competitive rate of 2.65% gross/ AER, has been very popular across the Society's branch network and there is just a week left to take advantage of this great offer.

The Diamond Saver account will be available until close of business on Friday 29th June 2012. This product, which was launched to coincide with the Queen's Diamond Jubilee celebrations, sees £1 donated to the Woodland Trust's Jubilee Woods project for every account that is opened.  Furthermore, all customers that open an account receive a Union Jack themed jute bag.

The Diamond Saver account pays a variable rate of 2.05% gross/ AER, plus an additional bonus of 0.60% until 31st May 2013, giving a current interest rate of 2.65% gross/ AER. The minimum investment is £100, with a maximum investment of £20,000 (£40,000 for joint accounts). 

Kim Rebecchi, Leeds Building Society Sales and Marketing Director said, "We are very pleased with how popular this account has been across our 65 strong national branch network. It offers unlimited, penalty free access along with a great interest rate.

"Existing Diamond Saver Account holders can add further funds to their account up to the maximum limit of £20,000 (£40,000 for joint accounts).

"There is just one week left to open this account, which pays a current rate of 2.65% combined with the option to open and operate via branch, post and online. I would urge people to take advantage of this offer before it is withdrawn at close of business on Friday 29th June."
