Savings round up - 24th June

Raisin continue to offer a £50 cashback bonus for June via this link which is on top of best buy rates in 1 and 4 Year Fixed, joint 3rd in 2 Year and second in 3 Year. This will make them more remunerative for those saving £10,000 or more who are not existing customers. However, this is the last week to grab this offer. The Bank of England voted to hold Base Rate on Thursday with 7-2 in favour of holding Base and the dissenters voting for a cut. While 1st August, their next meeting, isn't guaranteed a cut, the odds of it happening are favourable. We expect to see banks respond to this with rates falling back next month. Last week was relatively quiet with few moves in the best buy tables - as bank's waited to see what the decision and commentary from the Bank of England was. Expect to see some easing back on rates this week in response. Here's our round up of all the best buys and key changes from the savings market from the past week:

Easy Access

Chase stay top of the best buys courtesy of a bonus rate offer for six months - they are paying a 1% bonus on top of their 4.10% rate until 16th January.

Chip move up to third paying 5.01% on their app only easy access after the addition of a 0.17% bonus for 12 months. Monument's 5.01% rate is tied with Chip and is a straight forward savings account but does also have a high (£25,000) minimum balance.
