ING Direct has made a positive move with the introduction of a 2.22% 12 month introductory bonus for new ING Direct Savings Account customers.

It means the new rate will be fixed at 2.72% for a year, before reverting to 0.50% at the end of that period.

At this point, a review of the competitiveness of the product is essential because of the dramatic drop in the rate.

Adding to its potential appeal is the option of internet or telephone banking.

Comparing favourably with similar no notice accounts with a short term bonus, this account earns four out of five Moneyfacts stars.
