Halifax have been advertising their new current account recently – their website has the details here. They’re offering 10% interest on credit balances, a full 6% more (according to them) than is offered by AIB for example.
I was very struck though by the pretty restrictive terms on the account. You must deposit €1500 at least per month, but cannot have a balance greater than €2000, in order to get this interest.
This seems pretty ridiculous really. If you don’t meet either of these criteria, you get a whopping 0.1%.
