Nationwide Building Society is today (Friday 1 March) extending the bonus period for a further 12 months on its Smart Junior ISA.
Until 31 January 2015, Smart Junior ISA will include a fixed introductory bonus of 1.15% tax-free for balances of £1 or more. This means the Smart Junior ISA will pay 3.25% AER* tax-free variable including the introductory bonus. The extended bonus period applies to new and existing accounts.
Loyalty Saver (Issue 3) was withdrawn from sale at close of business on Thursday 28 February 2013.
*AER stands for Annual Equivalent Rate and illustrates what the interest rate would be if interest were paid and compounded once each year. Tax-free is the contractual rate of interest payable where interest is exempt from income tax.
