By: Nadeem_Walayat

The British arm of Toys R Us has been teetering on the brink of collapse for several months now following it's american parent company filing for bankruptcy protection in September 2017 that triggered a downsizing programme through rapid store closures that are likely to see at least 200 of it's 866 US stores close in an attempt at reducing its $5 billion debt mountain which dates back to its leveraged buy out of 2005 that costs Toys R Us $400 billion a year in interest payments and thus acts as a huge noose around Toys R Us's corporate neck.

How to Top Up Your Vauxhall Zafira's Brake / Clutch Fluid Reservoir / Personal_Finance / Money Saving

By: HGR

If when driving your Zafira the brake symbol starts coming on and off randomly on the dashboard, then that's a warning that your brake / clutch fluid may need topping up, as the brake symbol light should only come on when the hand brake is on. When driving there should be no warning symbol appearing. So even if your car appears to be driving perfectly well, you should never ignore the brake / clutch light symbol i.e. if ignored your brakes may fail!

Big Banks Finally Raise Savings Interest Rates, But was it worth the wait? / Personal_Finance / Savings Accounts

By: MoneyFacts

As we enter the festive month of December, savers will finally see some positive change in the variable savings market as many of the biggest brands have decided to increase their savings rates, but has the wait been worth it?

While many may assume it’s worth celebrating, the latest research from moneyfacts.co.uk can reveal that not all savers will be delighted, as some of the more popular deals have not had the full 0.25% Bank of England rate rise passed on. In fact, the average easy access rate has risen by a pitiful 0.07% in the last month, from 0.39% to 0.46%, and even those banks that do offer the full 0.25% rise can still be easily beaten by alternative brands, as challenger banks continue to dominate the Best Buys.

Christmas Cashback Credit Cards Analysis / Personal_Finance / Credit Cards & Scoring

By: MoneyFacts

The cost of Christmas is officially on the rise, as inflation sits at a five-year high of 3%, and food and energy prices are rising, which means running the boiler and buying those all-important Christmas groceries will cost more. With around five weeks left to go until the big day, consumers are likely to be concerned about how much the festive season will dent their bank balance.

Unfortunately, shoppers will find that interest-free deals on credit cards have been shrinking over the past six months, giving consumers fewer months to spread the cost of Christmas. At the same time, the cost of withdrawing cash using a credit card is on the rise and cashback cards are becoming far less rewarding. The latest research from moneyfacts.co.uk compares some of the best deals around, which could help shoppers make the most of rewarding credit cards and current accounts throughout the festive season.
