How much you got in though? If its a significant amount,Id start looking elsewhere unless you are happy to loose interest on it.

Depends what you think is significant. I would say approx. 15% of the maximum that your allowed. Problem with moving it, is that I quite like the chance of winning big

Once upon a time, I used to get a return of around a few hundred less than the interest I would have otherwise gained. Hence, I was really spending a small sum per week to win (hopefully) one of the 4 figure prizes. But alas, this has never happened and inflation has done it's damage. With interest rates so low, the stock market is looking attractive - but that is for another thread.

You'll get 3% if you have over 20k in a Santandar 123 Account.

January = 0
February = 0
March = 0
April = 0
May = £50
June = 0
July = 0
August = £25
September = 0
October = £25, £25

This needs to be the start of a strong end to the year if this annum's return is to look respectable

Another month another blank.

The return is getting dangerously close to sticking it under the mattress...
