Leeds Building Society has launched the Bonus ISA, a competitive variable rate account aimed at those yet to invest this year's ISA allowance.

The basics…

The Bonus ISA pays an annual rate of 3.00% including an introductory bonus of 1.70% to 30.9.13 to savers with a minimum investment of just £1. Transfers in are not accepted.

The finer details….

Funds can be accessed without advance notice; however, those looking for short-term access to money must be aware that a maximum of two withdrawals are permitted during the introductory bonus period. A third withdrawal during this time will result in account closure.

The account is available to savers aged 16 and over and can be operated in branch or by post.

Why we like it…

This variable ISA offers savers the attractive combination of a decent return and flexibility with accessing funds. Sitting comfortably within the cash ISA top ten, this account has been awarded four out of five Moneyfacts stars.
