Manchester Building Society has launched a new 35-day notice account sure to set savers' pulses racing.

Paying a rate of 3.11%, Premier Instant is a market leader in the short term notice account field.

Requiring a minimum investment of £1K, savers will need to act fast to obtain the high returns as additional investments are only allowed until 30 June 2011.

Four withdrawals per year are permitted, but early access to funds is not allowed.

With the rate including a 1% bonus for 12 months, savers will also need to review the account's competitiveness in a year's time.

Four out of five Moneyfacts stars have been awarded.
