Regular Savers with LBS rewarded with market-leading rate

The latest issue of Leeds Building Society’s popular Regular Saver account offers a market-leading rate of 2.55%.

The Society’s Regular Saver (Issue 10) incentivises people to put away their cash but offers flexibility about when they top up their account.

“Regular Saver is currently our most popular non-ISA savings account,” said Richard Fearon, Leeds Building Society’s Chief Commercial Officer.

“Unlike comparable products, there’s no requirement to hold other accounts with us and Regular Saver can be opened online.

“Supporting our members in the habit of regular saving remains really important to us - we were founded as a building society to help people to save and have the home they want.”

The Society’s Regular Saver offers members the flexibility of choosing then they make deposits, up to a maximum permitted balance which increases by £250 each month.

This means a saver can miss a payment for one month or more and catch up later. They also can make more than one deposit in a month provided they don’t exceed the maximum balance permitted.

This flexibility was included in the product in response to member feedback about the key features of a savings account.
