What is Newcastle Building Society's best savings account with the highest interest rate?

The best savings account depends on what you want from your savings. If you're after fast access to your money, then an easy-access account should suit you. However, if you're happy to lock your money away for a time to access a higher rate, then a fixed-rate bond is a good option.

Finally, if you're looking to maximise your returns and shield them from income tax, consider an ISA. Below, we've listed the different types of accounts Newcastle Building Society offers, plus the highest interest rate currently available.

How do I decide which account is for me?

Firstly, you need to decide what you’re looking for in a savings account. How often are you planning to draw out money? How much money can you afford to save each month?

You need to work out what you need before comparing the different offers available for certain types of savings accounts. Once you’ve done that, it’s useful to look at:

  • Interest rates.
  • Fees (if there are any).
  • Access to cash (if you need quick access, for instance).
  • Rewards and loyalty schemes (if you’re into add-ons or switching bonuses).

What are the pros and cons of banking with Newcastle Building Society?

Pros

  • Online banking. Even if you’re not based in the North East, you can open an account with the Newcastle Building Society online.
  • Choice. Newcastle Building Society offers a whole range of savings accounts. Whether you’re looking to save big or small.
  • Easily accessible. It lets customers manage their accounts in a branch, online, over the phone or by post.

Cons

  • Better rates elsewhere? It’s not market leading for all its savings account options. It’s always worth shopping around.
  • Remote. If you prefer face-to-face banking and you don’t live in the North East of England, then you may have problems with this Building Society.

Frequently asked questions

We show offers we can track - that's not every product on the market...yet. Unless we've said otherwise, products are in no particular order. The terms "best", "top", "cheap" (and variations of these) aren't ratings, though we always explain what's great about a product when we highlight it. This is subject to our terms of use. When you make major financial decisions, consider getting independent financial advice. Always consider your own circumstances when you compare products so you get what's right for you.
