Compare Monmouthshire Building Society savings accounts

Finding the right savings option for you will depend on your personal circumstances and your savings goals.

Monmouthshire Building Society have a variety of savings accounts that could help your savings grow quickly.

Instant Access Savings Accounts

If you are likely to need your savings in the near future then an instant access account may be suitable. Instant access savings accounts allow you to make a withdrawal whenever you need it and earn interest on your savings.

Notice Savings Accounts

A notice savings account might be a good option for you, if you are unlikely to need your savings in a short period of time. Notice savings accounts require a number of days’ notice to make a withdrawal, but often provide higher rates of interest.

Monmouthshire Building Society’s Bonus 60 account offers slightly higher interest than their instant access account, but requires 60 days’ notice for a withdrawal.

A tried and test method of growing savings quickly is putting aside a certain amount each month. By opening a regular savings account you could access impressive rates of interest, providing you deposit the minimum amount each month.

The Saver Plus account from Monmouthshire Building Society provides competitive interest and a relatively low monthly deposit requirement.

Fixed Rate Bonds

By locking away your savings for a prolonged amount of time, you could access higher interest. Fixed rate bonds offer some of the best interest on the market, providing you do not make a withdrawal from your savings over the course of the bond.

There are a variety of fixed rate bonds with Monmouthshire Building Society, which have different fixed terms and interest rates.

Cash ISAs
