As the key competition moves away from offering market leading cash Isa deals to new customers, Barclays pledges that it will continue to keep its Golden Isa - Issue 2 on sale to all customers at the best buy leading rate of 3.10% AER until the 1 June 2010.
Andy Gray, head of mortgages and savings at Barclays said: “We have maintained our best buy rates throughout the peak Isa season and we will continue to do so for the remainder of this month, as we know that this is still a popular time for customers thinking about opening Isas. To make sure customers don’t miss out on this great rate we would urge consumers who haven’t already taken advantage of a cash Isa for the current tax year to grab this best buy rate as its now a limited offer, they don’t need to be an existing customer, this deal is open to everyone.”
Barclays will be removing the 12 month fixed 1 per cent introductory bonus from 2nd June 2010 for new customers taking out a Golden Isa - Issue 2, any customer taking out the Golden Isa - Issue 2 up until 1 June will continue to benefit from this best buy interest rate with the 1 per cent bonus. Customers who bought Golden ISA - Issue 2 before 2 June will get 3.10% AER - this rate will include the fixed 1% introductory bonus which is paid for 12 months from the date of account opening. From 2 June 2010, new customers buying Golden ISA - Issue 2 will receive a core interest rate of 2.06% gross / 2.08% AER. These changes give consumers enough time to come and make their Isa arrangement during the period where Barclays are maintaining the best buy rate.
