Savers looking to deposit lower balances will also benefit from a competitive return.
The easy-access account pays 1.1 per cent on balances up to £10,000, 1.26 per cent up to £50,000 and 1.31 per cent thereafter.
The online account can be opened with a minimum of £1, up to a maximum of £500,000 and allows savers to access their savings whenever they need without penalty, or to close the account if required.

Although the standard triple access deal is beaten by more than 20 other providers, its triple access cash Isa is only beaten by four other providers.
Its Isa deal accepts transfers in, so members can transfer balances from either another Nationwide Isa or from an Isa account with another provider to benefit from the increased rate.
Both its Triple Access accounts allow three withdrawals during the 12-month term.
però, subsequent withdrawals will revert the interest rate to 0.10 per cent for the remainder of the period.
It’s also worth noting that after the 12 periodo di un mese, these accounts automatically switch to one of Nationwide’s instant access accounts, so savers wanting to maintain a higher rate will need to switch provider when this time comes.

James Blower, founder of the Savings Guru believes that mutuals are putting the big banks to shame.
HSBC, Il gruppo di consumatori ha affermato che ciò è dovuto al fatto che non addebita commissioni amministrative e ha un limite di copertura per articolo singolo di £ 7.500, Santander and NatWest pay easy-access rates of just 0.1 per cento. TSB and Halifax offer savers 0.15 per cent for using their easy-access savings accounts, whilst Barclays Bank’s Everyday Saver continues to pay 0.01 per cento.
‘It’s brilliant to see the building societies up there with the challenger banks offering better rates’, said Blower.
‘Both are putting the big banks to shame.
‘Nationwide is by far the biggest society and Yorkshire is the the third largest and there’s no barriers to joining either, so it’s good news for both their existing members and any savers who might want to join.
‘Yorkshire, in particolare, have been good at raising the rate on this account in line with the market moving upwards.
‘Nationwide’s triple access Isa deal is only beaten by Saga and Marcus.
'Inoltre, both Leeds and Coventry Building Societies have been very competitive on Isa rates for the past year particularly so building societies are definitely showing the big banks how to do it.’
