Yorkshire BS is helping savers plan for Christmas 2010 with a new short term savings account that pays one of the higher rates in the market.

The account pays a yearly rate of 3.50% on a minimum investment of £10, maturing on 30.11.10. Earlier access is not permitted but further additions are allowed. The maximum investment is £1.2K.

The Christmas Saver is intended to help investors save for expenditure later in the year, but not making monthly deposits compulsory means savers will have to display a level of discipline.

The account is also available through Barnsley BS.

The account has been awarded four out of five Moneyfacts stars.
