Guardian Follows Daily Express And Tips IceSave

ICESAVE is dead. Britain is at war with Iceland. And the Guardain is scoring points on the Express, its pet target:

GUARDIAN – Hugh Muir:

“If you are lucky enough to have some spare money, now could be the time to cash in,” said the ever-informative Daily Express, addressing the credit crunch yesterday. “Icelandic bank Icesave pays 7.06% on £1,000 or more on its one-year bond.” Yeah, right – October 8, 2008

GUARDIAN:

Ten of the best … savings accounts

Hear ye, hear ye… Any idea what’s No.1?

1. Icesave’s easy access cash Isa

Really…

…Icelandic-owned bank Icesave’s Easy Access Isa currently pays a variable 6.1% on £1,000 or above. If you don’t have that much to invest you can earn 6.08% on balances of £1 or more paid into Barclays’ Tax Haven Isa. Bear in mind that this figure is inflated by a 1% introductory bonus which disappears after one year - September 24, 2008
