From 20 March 2013 Nationwide Building Society is launching a new issue of MySave Online Plus.
MYSAVE ONLINE PLUS (ISSUE 14)
New MySave Online Plus customers who make no more than one withdrawal a year will receive a rate of 1.70% AER* (1.69% gross p.a.) variable, including a fixed bonus of 1.19% gross p.a. payable for 12 months.
Customers can make one free withdrawal per annum. Those making further withdrawals, including closure, can do so, but will receive a lower rate and no bonus in the month they make a withdrawal.
Existing customers who opened previous issues of MySave Online Plus are unaffected by this change.
Notes to editors:
*AER stands for Annual Equivalent Rate and illustrates what the interest rate would be if interest were paid and compounded once each year. The gross rate of interest is the interest rate payable before any income tax is deducted (if customers do pay tax).
MYSAVE ONLINE PLUS (ISSUE 14) – RATES EFFECTIVE FROM 20 MARCH 2013.
¹ Rates include a fixed rate bonus of 1.19% gross p.a. payable for the first 12-months on the account.
² Customers can make one free withdrawal per annum. Further withdrawals are permitted, but no bonus and a lower rate of 0.10% gross p.a./AER (variable) interest will be paid in the month a withdrawal is made.
