"The bank also says it is "aiming to offer UK savers a consistently competitive interest rate".

But all that is just pre-promotion. When the bank's first savings account launches next week it will succeed or fail purely on the interest rate it offers.

When a pilot account was launched to staff last month, the rate offered was 1.5%.

If the same rate is offered to the public, that will be enough to catapult it to the top of the best-buy tables, ensuring instant demand from savers."

yes, as discussed elsewhere.. it's all about how competitive they are.
i still have a marcus account, but there's very little in my account as i've pushed funds into Midlands Co-ops.

Marcus savings interest rate is now down to 1.35% for new customers; they appear to have discontinued the 0.10% bonus. I gave up waiting for a better incentive and joined last month, so still have 11 months bonus remaining, however it's another little squeeze on savers.
