I think it’s fair to say that when packaged accounts come up, Nationwide’s Flex Plus account is pretty much universally acknowledged as the leader of the pack. And there’s been talk about how it must be a loss leader given cheap it is.
But with the 3% interest vanishing, along with some other terms and conditions changing, I thought it might be interesting to see if £13/month (or £156/year) can be beaten for the services it provides. Either for individuals (assuming the account holder is single) or for families (if they’re not).
So, can we come up with a package that gives broadly the same benefits at around (or below) the same cost?
