What is an easy access savings account?
An easy access savings account is essentially what it says; a savings account that gives you easy access to your money.
With such an account you can access your savings without giving prior notice, and without forfeiting any interest.
There are some caveat’s however: there may be restrictions on the number of penalty free withdrawals you can make in any specific time period and, although you have easy access to your savings, unlike an instant access savings account there might be a few days’ delay before you have the cash in your hand.
