Best savings accounts: Top 4 regular savings accounts paying over 5 percent

Daily Express logo Daily Express 25/11/2022 Temie Laleye

The Bank of England has been raising its base rate in a bid to stop soaring inflation and encourage people to save. Sitting at three percent, the base rate rise has been reflected in a number of savings accounts across the market.

Britons are urged to shop around to find the best deal available to them.

There are a number of different savings accounts suitable for differing circumstances and offering a range of perks.

With a regular savings account, people commit to paying in a certain amount each month.

In return, the bank or building society gives someone a higher interest rate than they would get with their current account or ordinary savings account.



Rules vary between accounts. Some allow individuals to take money out but might give them a lower interest rate for that month or for the remainder of the term.

Other accounts don't allow any early withdrawals.

It's important to check the rules carefully before choosing a regular savings account, if people think they might need to access their money during the term.

Money comparison site Moneyfacts has pulled together the top regular savings accounts available right now.


Top four regular savings accounts

Ranking top of the list is Monmouthshire Building Society Christmas Saver Bond - Issue 5.

Savers can benefit from 5.5 percent on balances up to £2,400 in 12 months.

Britons can open an account with minimum of £10 and each month can deposit up to £200.

Next is Lloyds Bank's Club Lloyds Monthly Saver with an AER of 5.25 percent.
