Easy Access Saver (5) is a straightforward account designed to help you build up your savings and keep something set aside for a rainy day. There are plenty of ways to pay in and when you want to withdraw, simply transfer to your nominated bank account or another Coventry Building Society account. You can choose to have a statement or passbook to record transactions.
|Balance||AER*/Gross p.a.||AER*||Gross p.a.|
We calculate the interest daily and pay it annually, on the anniversary of the date you opened the account, or monthly, at the end of the last day of each month.
Interest can be added to the account or paid into another suitable account.
The interest rate is variable, so it can go up or down at any time.
For more details about why we may change the rate, as well as how and when we’ll let you know, see our Saving Accounts Terms and Conditions booklet (section4).
This would be the balance after 12 months if £1,000 was paid in, all interest was paid back into the account annually, there was no change to the interest rate and no money was taken out or paid in.
This illustration is just an example to help you compare accounts. It does not take into account any individual circumstances.
How to open and manage
How to put money into your account
This is an easy access account. You can take money out whenever you wish.
How to take money out of your account
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.
For full details, please see the Specific Terms for Easy Access Saver (5) and our Saving Accounts Terms and Conditions.
How to keep track of your account
If you choose not to have a passbook, we’ll issue you with a statement within a month of any money leaving your account. But don’t worry, we’ll never send you more than one statement a month.
If you choose to have a passbook and keep it updated, this will be your record of all transactions instead of a statement. If your passbook isn’t updated, we’ll issue you with a statement within a month of any money leaving your account.
You can receive your statements by post. Or, if you use Online Services, you can go paperless and we’ll send you reminders to view your statements.

If you’re not happy with our service
Please let us know. We take care to deal with problems quickly, thoroughly and fairly. If you’re still not satisfied when we’ve finished our complaints procedure, you can take your complaint to the Financial Ombudsman Service.

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.
