Consumers looking to open a savings account this week will find competitive rates available across the chart, however it should be noted that a number of chart-topping fixed rates that were available last week are no longer in the charts. However, there was some good news for those looking to deposit money into an easy access account, as Marcus by Goldman Sachs® did not follow Virgin Money in lowering its chart-topping easy access rate this week.

Consumers looking to open an ISA just before Christmas will find a number of competitive rates available in the ISA charts this week. The top fixed rate from last week was still available on a five year fixed ISA, while highly attractive rates were also available on short-term ISAs as well. Last week’s top-paying easy access ISA from Virgin Money was no longer available this week, but savers will still be able to find competitive rates currently available in the charts.

It should be noted that the rates below are the best rates available on Thursday and, although correct at the time of publishing, they may not be available on Friday. 

Today, savers faced more disappointment as Virgin Money cut its chart-topping easy access and easy access ISA rates. Nevertheless, those wanting quick access to their savings will still find some competitive rates available in the charts.

Here, we take a look at the three rates closest to those that were being offered by Virgin Money in both the easy access and easy access ISA charts.

Savers looking to put their money into an easy access account this week will be disappointed to see that Virgin Money has reduced the rates on its chart-topping easy access accounts. Saying this, there are still some highly competitive rates available in the chart. There was good news for those looking to fix their money into a long-term bond, with a new rate topping the chart this week. Last week’s top notice account rate was not available by the end of the week, however savers looking for a short notice account will be pleased to see that these charts continued to offer competitive rates.  

This week saw a lot of change in the fixed rate savings chart, with new rates topping the chart for all terms. Those looking for an easy access or notice ISA will also be pleased to see that these charts continued to offer a number of competitive top rates.

It should be noted that the rates below are the best rates available on Thursday and, although correct at the time of publishing, they may not be available on Friday.
