Market Harborough Building Society has just launched a Bank of England Base Rate Tracker Bond offering an impressive rate of 6.25% gross/AER on its yearly account option.

If you don't want to fix your rate and have a minimum £2.5K that can be tucked away for a year, the interest is guaranteed to stay 1.75% above base rate.

If you find you need your money early, there is a 90 day interest penalty, so be sure you can leave the money alone.

This bond won't be around long in today's market, so act fast before it disappears!
