No hidden surprises for Barnsley Online Savers

6th August 2012 Print

Savers wanting to manage their money online but not risk seeing their competitive return vanish in the future can choose Barnsley's Online Saver, with its rate of 2.50% gross/AER.

"A lot of the top-rated online savings accounts include an introductory bonus and limit or penalise the number of withdrawals customers can make," said Barnsley Building Society product manager Emma Golden.

"Barnsley's Online Saver has no limits on withdrawals and a competitive interest rate of 2.50%, which is not boosted by a bonus which disappears later - as a building society, and part of the Yorkshire Building Society Group, we want to offer our savers long-term good-value products which also are straightforward so they can be confident they know what they're getting.

"We've had a lot of publicity recently about the popularity of our Triple Access Saver passbook account but we want customers to be able to manage their savings in the way they prefer, including online.

"If your current account pays no interest on credit balances, using an easy access product such as Online Saver enables you to easily and conveniently move your money around and also earn a decent return on your savings."

A Barnsley Online Saver can be opened with £1 and allows up to £1 million to be invested. Savers can choose to have their interest paid annually or monthly.
