If you're looking for a higher rate of interest than you would normally find with an easy access account and you don't need access to your funds in the short term, then the 35 Day Notice Saver could be the account for you. 

The 35 Day Notice Saver key features are:

  • Save from £1,000 up to £250,000
  • Add to your savings* by post, direct credit from your bank account or by visiting our Epsom branch
  • Withdrawals available with no access charge after 35 days’ notice
  • All withdrawals will be paid directly into your bank account
  • Interest paid annually on 1 June each year or monthly at a reduced interest rate

* You can add to your savings by debit card using our Online Service, by bank transfer, by cheque or by cash at our Epsom branch. To send additional savings directly from your bank account the banking details you’ll need can be found on the back of your new account Certificate. To add to your account using your debit card you will need to register for our Online Service if you are not already a user for an existing account with us. You can register once you have received your new account Certificate. For security reasons the activation code required for your first log-in after registration is sent to you by post.
