Compare Darlington Building Society savings accounts

Getting the most out of your savings may depend on your savings account. If you want to find the best way to get more from your savings, you might want to review the savings options on offer with Darlington Building Society.

Instant Access Savings Accounts

Instant access accounts can help you stay flexible with your savings, by giving you the ability to make a withdrawal at any point and earn interest on your savings.

The Emerald and Instant Access accounts from Darlington Building Society both allow you to earn interest and access your savings whenever .

Notice Savings Accounts

Notice savings accounts can give you the opportunity to earn higher interest than instant access accounts. The trade-off for the better interest rate is that notice is required to make any withdrawal.

If you are willing to compromise access to your savings for the chance to get higher interest, you could open Darlington Building Society’s Member Exclusive 45 Day Account.  This provides slightly better interest than their instant access account but requires 45 days’ notice before a withdrawal.

Regular Savings Accounts

Putting money into your savings every month can help your savings grow quickly.

Darlington Building Society offer their Special Occasions Saver, which provides competitive interest but requires a certain amount of savings deposited every month.  

Fixed Rate Bonds

Fixed rate bonds provide higher rates of interest, providing no withdrawals are made for the life of the bond. The majority of fixed rate bonds run between 1 and 5 years; the longer fixed rate bonds often offer the better interest rates.

Darlington Building Society offer two fixed rate bonds, which pay monthly or annual interest at a competitive rate.

Cash ISAs

Cash ISAs provide the chance to earn up to £20,000 tax-free interest.

Darlington Building Society have two ISAs on offer:  their Cash ISA and Help to Buy ISA. Neither ISA offer the highest interest on the market, but the opportunity to earn tax-free interest up to £20,000 should not be ignored.
