Skipton's Senior Product Manager - Savings, Louise Halliwell, said: "Our Online Bonus Savers have always proved very popular and therefore we're delighted to continue catering for that demand with this latest product.

"We hope that the combination of a competitive rate with easy access will appeal to savers who are keen to make their money work hard for them, with the added benefit that they can get their hands on it if they need to."

This latest offering complements the wide variety of other good value savings accounts the Society has available, including our innovative goal-based My Savings range, which encourages people to save up for everything from holidays to bills through badged accounts which help them to keep their objective very much in mind. Skipton also offers competitive ISAs and bonds and was among the first providers to offer the new government-backed Junior ISA.
