Coventry BS continues to show its support for the Royal British Legion with the launch of a market-leading no notice savings account.

Not only does the Poppy Online Saver account pay a top rate of 3.15% (3.11% monthly), a donation of 0.05% of its average balance for each 12 month period is made to The Royal British Legion.

Savers are permitted to make four penalty free withdrawals each year, with a 50 day interest penalty being applied to any subsequent withdrawals.

The minimum investment required is a £1, while all transactions have to be carried out online.

It must also be noted that the rate includes a 1.15% AER bonus for the first year, so reviewing the account's competitiveness in a year's time is a must.

An excellent rate and an excellent cause, this account fully deserves the maximum five out of five Moneyfacts stars.
