TSB PLUS Current Account : 5% interest on first £2500

This account does not appear to be available until 30 March 2014

There has been a recent trend of free current accounts having the best interest rates available to entice new customers. The catches usually seem to be :

You need to put a certain amount in each month, usually around £1000
The interest might be on a limited amount
You may need to add some direct debits to the account
Some charge a monthly fee (check for free ones)

TSB PLUS Current Account
This current account is of special interest because :
You only need to put in £500 a month. Probably the lowest amount of this type of account
You don't need to add direct debits to the account
The interest is only on the first £2500, but that's £125 a year (before tax)
Online account only

Many people will earn more in this type of account than having large sums in savings accounts
