Market-leading savings account added to Leeds online offering

Leeds Building Society will launch a new issue of its popular Online Access Account tomorrow, Wednesday 19th April.

The Limited Issue account pays 1.05% on balances between £1,000 and £250,000, and permits withdrawals without notice or penalty.

“This online-only account is market-leading among high street providers,” said Richard Fearon, Leeds Building Society’s Chief Commercial Officer.

“Penalty-free access, combined with the ability to open and operate it online, makes it particularly convenient for savers seeking an easy access account.

“Our previous limited issue online accounts have been really popular so we’d encourage savers to act quickly to take advantage of this new product.”
