Increasingly, providers are launching linked products where customers taking out another financial product with the provider will get preferential rates on their savings.

Santander – Flexible ISA Issue 2

Current and new customers who use a Santander current account as their main account are being offered a rate of 3.20% on the Flexible ISA.
