Manchester BS has expanded its variable rate savings range with the launch of a new 60 day product.

The Premier Notice Issue 31 pays 3.21% yearly including a 1.50% bonus for the first 12 months, and can be operated by post and in branch.

The account requires 60 days' notice to withdraw money, with no earlier access permitted.

Four withdrawals are permitted per year, with additions allowed until 31 October 2011. Money must be new to the institution and the account has a minimum investment of £1K and a maximum of £75K.

At 3.21%, the Premier Notice Issue 31 sits in the top five of notice accounts and just below the market leader in the 60 day notice field.

A review will be required after 12 months when the 1.50% bonus expires.

Four out of five Moneyfacts stars have been awarded.
