From Monday 14th March 2016, Santander's new range of savings accounts and Cash ISAs will be available to savers keen to make the most of their money and tax free savings.
All new and existing Santander customers can benefit from a new fixed rate Regular eSaver paying 5 per cent AER/Gross (variable). Customers can open the account in branch or by telephone and can access their account online or using the mobile banking app. There are no penalties for withdrawals and there is no minimum opening or monthly deposit. Customers can save up to £200 each month in the Regular eSaver by setting up a standing order from their Santander current account. After 12 months the account will change to an Everyday Saver.
The latest 2 Year Fixed Rate ISA pays 1.35 per cent AER tax free (fixed) for new and existing Santander 1|2|3 customers, customers with either a 1|2|3 Current Account or 1|2|3 Credit Card, and all Santander Select customers. The standard 2 Year Fixed Rate ISA pays 1.10 per cent AER tax free (fixed).
Santander's new eISA will also be available to new and existing 1|2|3 and Select customers offering 1 per cent AER tax free (variable) for 12 months and 0.80 per cent AER tax free (variable) to all other customers. It allows access via online and mobile banking. Both the 2 Year Fixed Rate ISA and the eISA require a minimum opening balance of £500.
Santander also offers an Inheritance ISA (formally the APS ISA) paying up to 0.75 per cent and available in branches, as well as the Junior ISA offering a rate of 3.0% per cent AER tax free (variable) for new and existing Santander 1|2|3 customers and all Santander Select customers. The standard Junior ISA pays 2.5 percent AER tax free (variable)
Helen Bierton, Head of Savings at Santander said: "Helping families save and make their money go that little bit further is something we are committed to and we have a range of products available to all different types of savers."
As in previous years, all Santander ISAs accept transfers in from existing cash ISAs and can also be topped up in the new tax year, helping customers keep all their ISA savings in one account.
Customers can access the preferential deals by being part of the 1|2|3 World; having either a 1|2|3 Current Account or 1|2|3 Credit Card. These products give customers cashback on their household bills, cashback on spending and interest up to 3% AER on balances between £3,000 and £20,000.
