Bonus for Regular Savers with Leeds

Anyone with a regular savings habit can enjoy a competitive return of 2.30% if they put away money every month with Leeds Building Society.

The Society has launched Regular Saver (Issue 4), which can be opened in branch, by post or online.

The return of 2.30% includes a 1.80% bonus, payable if one single deposit of at least £50 is made into the account every month.

Up to £250 can be added to the account each month, up to a maximum investment of £6,000.

“As a building society, it’s important to us to support a culture of regular saving,” said Richard Fearon, Leeds Building Society’s Chief Commercial Officer.

“We were created to help people save and have the home they want and this account rewards monthly deposits with a bonus to encourage savers to keep up a longer-term habit of putting away money every month.

“Unlike comparable products, our Regular Saver offers a higher return without the requirement to hold other accounts with us, and it can be opened online.”

Interest is paid annually on 31st August and a maximum of one withdrawal is permitted in each bonus period.
