Interest rate at 4.25%: what does the rise mean for you?

Be Clever With Your Cash

”Despite the increase, the BoE still expects inflation to drop significantly this spring (a year on since the war in Ukraine will contribute massively, as will the extension of the Energy Price Guarantee). And last week the Office for Budget Responsibility said inflation would fall to 2.9% by the end of the year.”

Are joint bank accounts a good idea in relationships?

Metro

”What’s most important is you don’t give full responsibility for your finances to one person, and definitely don’t let them have all the money in their account.

Even if that person has a better understanding, and perhaps interest, in money matters, there’s a risk this can turn into one person controlling, even unintentionally, all the spending decisions.”

Why you should get a better bank account

Reader’s Digest

”Moving your money could get you better banking and customer service, through to monthly rewards and higher interest rates. Plus there are some huge cash bonuses on offer for switching completely.”

Four expert podcasts to get your finances back in shape

The Sun

'CASH CHATS WITH ANDY WEBB: The seasoned saver founded becleverwithyourcash.com, and it is packed with vouchers, sales and tips.

Andy’s weekly podcasts are full of excellent titbits. But his top tip for this year is: “Earn money every time you spend with a combination of cashback debit or credit cards — be sure to pay off the balance each month — and cashback sites such as Quidco and TopCashback. Once you are in the habit, the small amounts you make each time can add up to hundreds of pounds.”

Petrol price tips - only fill half a tank and get rid of extra weight, drivers urged

Mirror

Consumer journalist Andy Webb said on his Cash Chats podcast: “Don’t necessarily fill up. You don’t have to wait until it clicks every time.

In fact, one of the things that can help you with fuel consumption as well is weight. Sometimes it is also not a bad idea to put half the petrol into the fuel tank rather than fill it all the way up because that means it will last that little bit longer because there is less weight in the car from that fuel.”

Yellow stickers: Secrets of cut-price food revealed

BBC News

'Andy Webb has an addiction. And he's not the only one. The 37-year-old Londoner can't walk past a supermarket without checking whether it's selling cut-price food.

"If £4 mince is reduced towards £1, I'll be far more excited than a grown man should be by the price of mince," he says.
He once got £30 of food for £7.50 and proudly put the photo on his blog.

"The most important thing is, don't just buy it because it's reduced. It's only a bargain if you want it." Andy Webb, becleverwithyourcash.com’
