Maybe you need a little encouragement to save up for your holiday; I know I always get tempted to dip into my spending money a few months before. But luckily Halifax are here to help, they offer a variety of savings accounts so you don’t blow through your money as easily. You can just move little bits of your monthly wage into your savings account via your internet banking.
Don’t have a Halifax bank account? Not to worry, just to sweeten the deal, they actually offer you £100 just for switching your current account over to them.
