Grab Santander’s Best Rate Now!

Starting at midnight tonight, the percentage rate for the account will decrease from 5.2% to 2.5%. However, you still have a few hours left to take advantage of the higher rate if you are considering opening the account. But time is of the essence, so you need to act quickly. As long as you open the account before midnight tonight, you should be able to enjoy the higher rate for a whole year.

The bank is offering a great interest rate, which happens to be the highest they've paid in 14 years. Plus, you only need a pound to get started with this account. The interest payment happens once a year, but if you prefer monthly payments, the rate will be lowered to 5.08% AER.

You can enjoy a special starting interest rate for a year. After this period, your funds will move to a Santander Everyday Saver or a different account that you pick.
