Chelsea BS has added to its notice account portfolio with the Bonus 60.

The product is a 60 day notice account that pays 2.65% yearly (2.62% monthly) on a minimum investment of just £1.

The competitive rate, which sits just below the market leaders, includes a 1.00% bonus for the first year. Early access is subject to 60 days' loss of interest.

After one year withdrawals become instant access, meaning moving funds after the bonus period will be penalty free.

Investors will need to review their finances after 12 months, however, to ensure they continue to receive a competitive rate.

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