The 1st Class Postal account from Coventry BS makes an excellent effort at living up to its name.

Requiring a minimum investment of £1K, this no notice postal operated account pays 3.00% yearly (2.965% monthly), making it one of the leading no notice non-internet accounts around.

Despite including a bonus of 1.00% AER for the first year, the underlying rate of 2.00% remains competitive and stands up to scrutiny.

Four penalty free withdrawals are allowed per annum, with any extra subject to the loss of 50 days interest.

Ideal for those still not comfortable with the world of the internet, deposits can be made by standing order or through transfers.

Delivering on so many fronts, this product earns four out of five Moneyfacts stars.
