I really do find it a pain in the arse that if I want to get any sort of worthwhile interest on my savings I have to move the bloody money around every twelve months or so. Turn your back for a couple of months and the bank makes that nice saving account you did have about as useful as keeping the money in a pot under the stairs. Meanwhile new savers get much better deals on the same accounts!

I know why they do it but it’s still damn annoying. I suppose I could haggle with the bank and tell them I’m shifting my finances somewhere else unless I get the same deal they are offering new savers but is that less hassle than opening another new account at another bank?

So time to open an Egg account I suppose. Least I won’t need to do it again for 12 months. Well, until ISA time in April anyway…
