Two ways to always ensure you get the best savings rate

  1. Bookmark this page and regularly check our best buy tables, such as the one below.
  2. You can also sign up to the FREE rate tracker email alert which will monitor savings account rates for you. You simply enter your email address and the names of the savings accounts you currently have. Then not only will the system tell you if you are getting a good deal but it will continuously monitor the market for you and email you when there are better deals out there than your existing account. When using the tool make sure you enter the correct balance for each of your accounts as some deals out there offer tiered rates, whereby the interest rate paid is dependent on your account balance.
