Compare Marks & Spencer savings accounts

Marks & Spencer’s financial services division is known as M&S Bank. They provide a number of different savings options for their customers, which might be a good fit for you. This will depend on your personal finances and saving objectives.

Below we explain the main types of accounts M&S Bank offers to savers.

Current Accounts

If your savings are relatively modest at this point, keeping them in your current account might be your best move. Current accounts generally pay good rates of interest, but only up to a certain deposit limit. 

When your savings exceed the deposit limit on your account, you will normally not earn any interest on the excess balance. This should be moved to an alternative account to ensure the best overall return.

Instant Access Savings Accounts

Flexible saving can be very appealing, especially to those who aren’t sure what their financial situation will be like in the near future. An instant access savings account lets you put money in and take it out when it suits you. However, bear in mind there may be a limit on how many withdrawals you can make each year.

Fixed Rate Bonds

If you want to get a guaranteed return on a lump sum, a fixed rate bond is ideal. These pay a set rate of interested over a pre-agreed period. The trade-off is that you cannot access your money during this period, so fixed rate bonds are generally best for long term saving. The longer you can afford to lock your money away, the better interest rate you will normally get.

Cash ISAs

ISAs allow UK taxpayers to earn tax-free interest on their savings, which make them very appealing. There is a limit to how much you can put into an ISA, which is set each year by the government. For 2017/18 this is £20,000.

ISAs will generally fall into one of two camps – fixed term or instant access. A fixed term ISA works like a fixed rate bond, giving a guaranteed interest rate for a set period during which you can’t use your money. Instant access ISAs give variable rates of interest, but provide the freedom to take your money out whenever you want and put more money in later if you can afford to.

ISAs often give slightly lower rates than other types of savings accounts, so this must be offset against the tax incentives on offer to see which type of savings account is the best value overall.
