Compare AA savings accounts

Finding the right savings account can affect how quickly your savings grow. Of course, the savings account that works for you will depend on the amount of savings you have, how long you are prepared to put your savings away for and the amount of interest you are looking to receive.

To find the best savings account for your set of circumstances, you should review the accounts available through the AA below.

Current Accounts

A number of high street banks have recently increased their current account interest rates to encourage more customers to switch accounts.

It should be noted that high interest current accounts often have a ceiling over which they will not pay interest. Therefore, for smaller amounts of money a current account could be a good option.

Bear in mind, if you have a substantial amount of savings, you are better off moving anything over the interest-paying limit to a different savings account.

AA do not provide a current account.

Instant Access Savings Accounts

AA currently offer two savings accounts with instant access: the Easy Saver account and the Member Saver account.

The Easy Saver account offers competitive interest whilst giving you the flexibility to withdraw your savings at any time. It should be noted that the interest reverts to an underlying rate after the first year.

The Member Saver account provides a slightly higher rate than the Easy Saver account, however it is exclusively available to AA members.

Cash ISAs

If you have a substantial amount of savings and you are looking to benefit from £20,000 tax-free interest ISA allowance, you could explore the AA ISAs.

The Easy Access ISA from the AA offers the ability to withdraw from your savings and earn tax-free interest, in exchange for a lower interest rate than their other products.

AA also offer 1 or 2 year Fixed Rate ISAs, which offer their highest rate of interest. However, the Fixed Rate ISAs prohibit you from making any withdrawals. Therefore, you should only consider the AA’s fixed rate product if you are confident that you will not need your savings for the duration of the term.
