What is best savings account in Hertfordshire?
I need to save enough to buy a new amp for my band.
Totally understand where you're coming from Danny - new equipment is worth saving for, and it's to your credit (so to speak) that you haven't succumbed to the easy method of putting the amp purchase on a credit card. The amp will sound better when you know it's yours and not on tick.
Anyway. I presume the reason you want an account in Hertfordshire is because you want a high street branch rather than internet banking? Or maybe it's because you want to support a local business? If the latter, the Harpenden Building Society might fit the bill, but their interest rates are nothing special.
For a decent independent comparison of savings rates from most if not all banks and building societies, you could check out the Money Made Clear website at http://www.moneymadeclear.org.uk/tables/ and click on Savings. | 12.16.10 @ 20:02
You'll also need to check for any "local" requirements as many smaller building societies increased their minimum savings balances to deter carpetbaggers and others will only accept an application if you live within X miles of a branch or in a certain postal code area | 12.22.10 @ 22:49
