interest rates on savings?

Post Posted: Fri Jun 10, 2005 2:22 am

Hi all
Does anyone know of a bank that gives any interest on savings (for a rainy day!)
It seems to me the interest rates are pretty dismal unless somebody knows better Smile
And I dont mean offshore

I've done far better with Premium Bonds than any interest rate out there.

Hi Treeca

I looked at

www.thisismoney.co.uk/savingsfinder

www.moneysupermarket.c...00&Lender=

Moon...we did quite well from Premium bonds...perhaps they are a good option, then.

I was wondering whether the banks in Portugal give better interest rates...does anyone know?

Hi Piglet
The trouble is the few pennies are in euros, there are lots of money saving web sites in uk but nothing much for pt
Are there bonds similar to premium savings bonds

Laughing Laughing Sorry Treeca

Looked at your location and wrongly assumed UK. Interest rates and savings in PT are something I am currently investigating...although might be worth investing in property/land in an up and coming area potentially for real returns.

Please let me know what you discover and I will do the same.

Kind Regards
Carole
