The new issue of Citibank's Flexible Saver instant access account looks set to create stir amongst savers.

Paying 0.19% more than its predecessor, the new rate of 3.25% monthly is available for a minimum deposit of just £1.

While now being a market leader amongst no notice accounts, the rate does include a 2.25% bonus for 12 months, making it essential that savers reassess their options in a years' time.

However, with a cash card available with the account adding significantly to its appeal, four out of five Moneyfacts stars are well deserved.
