Compare Harpenden Building Society savings accounts

Opening the right savings account can affect the way your savings grow. Of course, the savings account you choose will depend on how much savings you have, how long you are prepared to lock up your savings for and what kind of interest you want to earn.

Instant Access Savings Accounts

Instant access savings accounts give you the freedom to make unlimited withdrawals and earn interest on your savings.

The Instant Access – Escalator account from Harpenden Building Society offers easy access to your savings, as well as tiered rate of interest.  

Notice Savings Accounts

Notice savings accounts often have slightly better interest rates than instant access accounts, but they need a number of days’ notice before a withdrawal can be made.

The 30 Days’ Notice from Harpenden Building Society provides competitive interest and requires 30 days’ notice to make a withdrawal.  It should be noted that Harpenden Building Society’s 30 Days’ Notice account is only available to existing members prior to 1st December 2013. If you are not a member, or have only just become a member of the Harpenden Building Society, then you will not be able to open their notice savings account.

Cash ISAs

Cash ISAs have the ability to provide up to £20,000 tax-free interest. This may suit your set of circumstances, if you have a substantial amount of savings and you want to benefit from the tax-free interest allowance.

The Cash ISA – Simply ISA from the Herpenden Building Society offers the ability to receive up to £20,000 tax-free interest, in exchange for a lower interest rate than their other products.
