Published: 7/9/2010,p>The Alliance and Leicester current account offer that has a credit interest rate of 8.5 percent gross is being extended until the end of September according to a recent announcement.
The move has been made to encourage more consumers to save regularly, the high interest rate being a real eye catcher designed to highlight the benefits of saving. The accounts that are included in this Alliance and Leicester promotion are the Premier 50 and Premier Direct current accounts.
Younger savers also have an extension on their own promotion. The Alliance and Leicester Premier 21 account is a current account specifically for those aged between 16 and 21 which is offering a 10 percent interest rate during the promotional period.
