Compare Co-operative Bank savings accounts

The Co-operative Bank markets itself as an “ethical bank”, which can make it an attractive option for savers with a strong social conscience. They have a range of savings options which are worth considering to see if they make a good match for your saving goals. Make sure you are familiar with all of the options the Co-operative Bank offers before making a decision.

Current Accounts

Current accounts often pay very good interest rates, so it is worth keeping as much of your savings in your current account as you can, up to the account limit. 

Although you can usually let your account balance go over the limit, you will generally earn no interest on the excess. This means you will be better moving it to an account designed specifically for savings.

Instant Access Savings Accounts

If you are keen to have an account that offers you flexibility, an instant access savings account could be just the thing. You will normally be able to put money in and take it out straightaway, whenever you want to, although there may be a yearly limit on how often you can do this.

Many instant access accounts now offer online and telephone access for making transfers, and you may also be offered a cash card allowing you to take money out at ATMs.

Fixed Rate Bonds

Savers who have a lump sum, which they don't immediately need, could see a good return by investing in one or more fixed rate bonds. These pay guaranteed rates of interest over a set period in exchange for not being able to access your money during that period. The longer you are willing to lock your money away, the better rate of interest you will normally receive.

Cash ISAs

If you are UK taxpayer, putting some of your savings into a cash ISA is likely to be beneficial. This allows you to earn interest without paying tax on it for deposits up to a yearly allowance set by the government. For the 2017/18 tax year that amount is £20,000.

You will usually be offered one of two key types of cash ISA – instant access or fixed term. These work much like instant access savings accounts and fixed rate bonds, respectively, but with the extra bonus of not paying tax on your interest.

Cash ISAs normally offer slightly lower interest rates than some other forms of saving, so make sure to weigh up the savings you will make in tax against the extra interest you could earn with alternative options.
