After Lloyds and TSB cut the rates on their current accounts, Sarah and her guests look at where to get the best rates for current and savings accounts. With rates generally tanking since Brexit, are the high-interest accounts still worth it, and are there any alternatives to the high street banks? Is there any point switching accounts when rates across the board are so low? Sarah is joined by young money champion Amelia Murray, Hannah Maundrell of money.co.uk and Anna Bowes from Savings Champion.
According to a study by the FCA, 1.6 million people only make the minimum repayment on their credit cards each month. Research released this week by savvywoman.co.uk this week bears this out; it found that 4 in 10 adults grossly underestimate how long it will take to pay off credit card debt if you only pay back the minimum every month. Sarah discusses the findings with her guests, Jane Clack from Pay Plan and the freelance finance expert Martyn James.
Four months after the referendum, Sarah and her guests look at what we know about Brexit and how this might impact our money.

Welcome to This is Money, the podcast, presented in partnership with NS&I. Editor Simon Lambert and Personal Finance Editor Rachel Rickard Straus join Share Radio’s Georgie Frost in the studio to go through the week’s biggest money stories.
And this week it’s all about inflation, and the news is leaving us all a little … deflated. Yes, that nebulous indicator, inflation has jumped to its highest level in 2 years - hitting spenders and savers alike. Blame Brexit if you like, and a lot of people have done, but is that really it? Michael O’Leary of Ryanair certainly is blaming the referendum as he hikes prices in even more obscure ways. And then, we’re looking at the banks: they’re slashing rates, deceiving switchers, and worst of all; this week it seems they don’t even know how to keep our money safe!
Meanwhile, we take a look at the treasury's U-Turn to allow retired savers to cash in their annuities. Is Chancellor Hammond just doing all he can to obliterate Chancellor Osborne’s legacy, or dare I say it, could there be an actual plan in place? Surely not, that’s madness.
At the other end of the show, Simon reckons we need a tax break on savings interest, what little we have, someone’s bought a car with Apple Pay and everyone’s amazed for some reason, and the new Churchill fiver sees even more inflationary trading.
This is Money is presented by Georgie Frost, in partnership with NS&I.
