    LISA - Peoples view?

    Yup, up to £40k in a pension in one year. Current lifetime limit is £1.03M but may vary with future governments. Agreed I won't be troubling those sort of figures for quite some time!

    LISA - Peoples view?

    @Jon I think the received wisdom from people like Paul Lewis of MoneyBox etc, is if you're unsure then just open one up and stick £1 in so that you don't miss the boat. That way you can always go back and pay in your allowance until you're 50 if you decide you want to.

    Deposit £1000 Receive £100 Bonus Fineco Bank

    Glad to see that this has returned, @bobcat2010. I know that last time it wasn't particularly smooth for everyone, but I was one of members who benefited from this offer, so can confirm it's real. My observations: 1. You need to opt-in for the bonus via a pop-up which will appear between...

    LISA - Peoples view?

    Apologies if late, but I disagree with @homie if you're a higher rate tax payer. 25% is a fantastic return, but you effectively get a return 40% (or 45% if upper tax rate payer) thanks to tax relief on your pension. The other advantage is that you can (currently) access your pension at 55, but a...

    Do you pay more for sustainable products?

    Are there not tax breaks that (potentially) make it worthwhile for companies to switch to electric vehicles? Agreed on the biking thing. I really need to sort a £50 fixie to start commuting into work. Speaking more generally, I've switched to a green energy supplier and probably wouldn't switch...

    Plum Saving Messenger Bot - £25 for 3 referrals

    @SuperJonesy If you mean the investments part then yes. I've got about £350 quid split between the Tech fund (slightly down) and the Emerging Markets (up enough to take me into a positive overall).

    Plum Saving Messenger Bot - £25 for 3 referrals

    @Katwoman28 Did you get your Valentines day message from Plum yesterday telling you how much you'd saved? I hadn't realised but it had put away over £1k in 8 months. (Probably would have just spent that on beer instead.)

    Trading 212 - Free stock worth up to £100 - Deposit minimum £1 (<24 hours cashout)

    Biggest single one I've seen is @Ar_ 's at about £90. Everyone now seems to be getting around £10-15, which is still not bad, but I wonder if they've limited it to minimise their costs?

    Trading 212 - Free stock worth up to £100 - Deposit minimum £1 (<24 hours cashout)

    Hi @jollyjelly , Yeah, I've got one now. I little disappointed that it's not quite at the same price level as @Ar_ 's but I'll take my tenner quite gladly. Thanks Trading 212!

    How do i improve my credit rating?

    Ironically you may need to create more of a credit history to improve the rating. The easiest way is to take out a low value credit card and set up a direct debit to pay it off in total every month (but seriously do make sure you pay it off). Also, are you registered on the electoral roll as...

    Trading 212 - Free stock worth up to £100 - Deposit minimum £1 (<24 hours cashout)

    I've not received mine from Trading212 yet either despite the Saturday sign up. *Fingers crossed*. @Jon, I think it's not seen at gambling as: 1, On average Gambling has an expected negative return, whilst Investing is expected to have a positive return. 2, You are actually buying something...
