A cash ISA might be a good idea too and a current account with Santander ?
Their 123 account pays interest

Re: Premium Bonds

Maybe you'll be lucky, Mark, but it's dead money isn't it.

Just as long as you have enough savings in case you need dosh in a hurry.



Anyone know how long it takes for them to pay up if you cash in any bonds ?

My father used to say that if premium bonds had been in for years, they needed 'refreshing' and he said it was better to have them all in one block.

He had researched this as far as possible at the time
You can't buy 12 worth now - has to be 100 minimum

If anyone can take the money out of my wallet and remain unhospitalised then they are welcome to it

Better as premium bonds than in my current account. Lot safer because of it I should think.
