If your bank offers you nothing, here are two great options to get a little more on two already good current accounts.

TSB Classic now offers 5% cashback

I’m a big fan of the TSB Classic account as it offers 5% interest on balances of £2,000, worth £86 over the next 12 months (£6.50 a month until March after 20% tax, then a tax free £8.15 a month from April).

On top of that you can now earn up to an extra £60 a year by using the contactless debit card to spend. Until December 2016 you can get 5% cashback on the first £100 pounds you spend each month.

I only use my TSB account for savings, and I’m sure many others do, which is why they’ve introduced this offer to get more people using it as a bank account!

You don’t have to switch from your current bank to get these offers, you can just open up a new account.

First Direct ups switching offer to £150

If your bank is poor and offers you nothing,  then switching can be a quick cash finder.

First Direct always does well in customer service polls, so this chance to get £150 for switching via MoneySuperMarket is a great way to max what you make.

Once you’ve joined First Direct you can open a 6% Regular Saver. If you pay in the max of £300 each month you’ll make £117 at the end of 12 months! There will be no tax to pay as new rules from April 1st mean everyone can earn £1,000 in interest each year before paying tax on it.
