IF, LIKE many savers, you top up your current account from a long-term savings account to earn more interest, the Portman Building Society's Prestige Gold account may fit the bill.
Prestige Gold savers can use a pounds 250 cheque guarantee card and cheque book, and have instant access to cash of up to pounds 500 a day. The account pays tiered rates of interest, ranging between 3.5 per cent gross on sums between pounds 10,000 and pounds 19,999, to 5.25 per cent on deposits over pounds 50,000.
Savers can also obtain commission-free foreign exchange. Call 01202 560560.
