The deal that’s a steal…

Looking for a treat or something to do?

Groupon* are currently offering up to 25% off sitewide.

If you only do one thing…

Review your savings accounts.

A number of banks have announced that they will be reducing the interest rate on their savings accounts in the next couple of months, including Virgin Money and Santander.

So it’s a good time to check whether your money could be doing better elsewhere or put in a calendar reminder to make those changes closer to the time.

More generally though, it’s a sign that savings interest rates might be about to drop across the board.

That might not have a bearing on how you manage your money but then again, it might.
