With poor returns on most savings accounts it is hard to know where to save these days.There are some accounts such as Barclays regular saver that is giving 6%.Does anyone have any experience of this account or recommend any others?

Absolutely correct - was this not the man actively endorsing Icesave for many moons prior to it's collapse?

I'd also be wary of accounts like the new reward account at Halifax - any bank that feels the need to lob a fiver at anyone who can deposit £1000 a month has gone beyond desperate...

I can't tell anyone as it's a secret...but my mattress has now become more lumpy. Safest place I reckon

Might be a tad tricky if you need to claim on your insurance for fire or burglary?
"Yes, I had £100k in the mattress", am I covered?

As long as your under £35k your money is protected.
Buying Gold seems to be the "in" thing to do at the moment!

As cash Isa's are fairly useless now and if you would like to gamble on the world economy making a recovery within living memory then I suppose stocks and shares Isa's are one way to go.

The £35k ceiling for individual savings was raised to £50k back in October 2008.
