In exchange for putting away your savings until the end of December 2020, we’ll pay you a competitive fixed rate of interest, so you’ll know exactly what you’re earning until 31 December 2020. And by opening a Poppy Bond (99) you’ll be helping us to help The Royal British Legion.

Account name
Poppy Bond (99) 31.12.2020
What is the interest rate?
  Annual interest
(Fixed until 31.12.2020)
Monthly interest
(Fixed until 31.12.2020)
Balance AER*/Gross p.a. AER* Gross p.a.
£0.01 plus 2.00% 2.00% 1.98%

The interest rate is fixed until 31.12.2020.

 

We calculate the interest daily and pay it annually (either into this account or to another suitable account) at the end of 31 December, or monthly (to another suitable account only) at the end of the last day of each month.

Can Coventry Building Society change the interest rate?

The interest rate is fixed.

 

No matter what happens to interest rates generally, we won’t change the rate until the account matures at the end of 31 December 2020.

What would the estimated balance be at the end of the fixed rate term based on a £1,000 deposit?

£1,064.76

 

This would be the balance after 38 months if £1,000 was paid in on 1 November 2017, interest is added annually to the account and no other money was taken out or paid in during the year.

 

This illustration is just an example to help you compare accounts. It does not take into account any individual circumstances.

How do I open and manage my account?

How to open and manage

  • Online Services 
  • Telephone Services
  • By post
  • At a branch (the account can be opened at a branch, but can only be managed using the channels above)
  • You must be aged 18 or over and a UK resident to open this statement based account

How to pay in

  • This is a limited issue account and you have a limited time to pay in. We must receive your initial deposit, and any other deposits, either within 14 calendar days of your account being opened or while the account is open to new investors, whichever period is longer.
  • By cash or cheques in a branch
  • Post us a cheque
  • Set up transfers from an account with another bank or building society or another account with us
  • The minimum balance is £1
  • The maximum balance is £250,000

 After you've opened the account, we won't contact you to let you know when it closes to new investors. To find out if its still available, please contact us.

Can I withdraw money?

This is a no access bond. After the 14 day ‘cooling off period’, you can’t make withdrawals (including any interest paid into the account) before 31 December 2020.

 

What happens when the account matures?

  • This Poppy Bond (99) will mature at midnight at the end of 31 December 2020.
  • We’ll write to you at least 14 days before the account matures with details of how you can re-invest your savings with us, withdraw some or all of your money. 
  • There’ll be a default option – another bond with us. The term will be no longer and your withdrawal options will be no more restrictive than those offered by your original account.
  • At maturity, unless you have asked us otherwise, the money in this account will be automatically re-invested into the default option. However, you’ll have the option to withdraw from or close your new bond without incurring a charge within 21 days following maturity.
Additional information

Our donation to The Royal British Legion (Registered Charity no. 219279) will be equal to 0.15% of the total balances invested in Poppy Bond (99) 31.12.2020 as at the end of business on 31 January 2018.

 

We pay your interest gross. The gross rate is the interest payable before the deduction of tax. 

 

*AER stands for Annual Equivalent Rate and illustrates what the interest rate would be if interest was paid and added each year.

Compare our accounts

We believe in being open and honest. We want you to make an informed choice. That’s why we've built this tool to help you compare our accounts with other providers.

This tool uses the latest data from moneyfacts.co.uk, an independent comparison service. Moneyfacts aim to include at least 95% of providers of UK-based personal savings accounts. 

What’s missing? Our tool omits any accounts with special conditions for opening (for example, you have to already hold an account with the provider).

Remember: there’s more to a savings account than just the interest rate. You can compare access terms, how to pay in and other criteria – then make your own mind up.
