Virgin Money launches Manchester United themed savings account for children
If your child is a Manchester United fan, then they’ll certainly be attracted to Virgin Money’s new savings account for children.
In a partnership with Manchester United, Virgin Money has launched ‘Fred the Red Young Saver’ account, which offers an interest rate of 1.75%.
Virgin said as well as the competitive interest rate, easy access to savings, children would also benefit from a Manchester United benefits pack, which includes Manchester United merchandise, newsletters, priority access to match tickets and a range of club discounts.
Account trustees will benefit from the “United Rewards” scheme, which includes a monthly chance to win a range of prizes including match day tickets for the Theatre of Dreams, signed Manchester United replica shirts, hospitality tickets to enjoy the game in style and a range of other prizes. The more customers save, the better their chances of winning.
The account can be opened with as little as £1 with a maximum balance of £25,000.
Fred the Red Young Saver account is named after the popular Red Devils mascot Fred the Red.
Virgin said it hopes the account will encourage children to save.
Reduce your grocery bill by 70% this summer!
The kids are off school and they are going to be hungry – inevitably, the next few weeks will see the cost of your weekly shop shoot up.
To help families keep the costs of food shopping down, MMM put Approved Food to the test, which can help slash the cost of shopping by as much as 70%.
There is of course one catch – the food is past or close to its sell-by date, but perfectly safe.
With a £30 budget, MMM managed to bag a fair amount – cereals, tinned food, sweets and treats, drinks and even laundry detergent and dishwasher tablets – the sort of things where you can generally ignore the date stamped on the product.
If you’ve tried reducing the cost of the grub by switching brands or shopping at discount stores but think you can do better, then try Approved Food – you’ll be surprised at just how much you could save on some store cupboard essentials.
New products are available everyday and there are some real bargains. For example, Sprite Zero 330ml for just 29p or a 2kg Reeses Peanut jar for just £2.99. There’s even stuff for pets, at more than 50% off.
MMM was really pleased with service and surprised at just how at just how much £30 would buy (see pic above/ instagram).
Although we would like to see Approved Food cut down on the cardboard packaging, the items arrived well packed and in excellent condition.
So, if you’re looking to save a few more pounds on your groceries, take a look at Approved food – you’ll be surprised at just how good the bargains are.
