There are different types of bank account designed to meet different customer needs. Some customers want to save over a long period of time, to benefit from as high a rate of interest as possible and they don't need instant access to their funds. Other customers want 24 hour access to their money and never leave enough in the account to benefit from any interest.
The banks blend these two basic requirements in a variety of ways along with a host of other features to form different accounts. By matching your own financial situation to the accounts being offered it should be possible to find an account that works for you. For instance, if you are not always sure how much extra money you will have left at the end of a month but you don't want to miss out on savings interest there are accounts that will automatically sweep your excess funds into a saving account.
Some accounts offer discounts and benefits to holders on other products that the bank offers. By comparing the banks and their various accounts you can try to see which of the many options will suit you and your lifestyle.
