– SUPERMARKETS’ Christmas savings schemes are aimed at shoppers who put a little aside each time they visit a store – but the bonuses are paid on a fixed date each year regardless of how long you've been saving.

This means you don’t have to lock your money away for long to gain the incentive. The level of bonus depends only on the amount in your account by the cut-off date. With Asda, for example, you could pay in the minimum £30 by 5pm on November 21 2021 and qualify for the lowest £1 bonus payout by 9am the following day. Deposit the maximum £280 and you’ll receive the maximum £15 bonus, equivalent to 5.35 per cent interest overnight.
