Perhaps you should learn how to spell 'America' before you move here

Open a few online accounts because interest rates often change...... for instance First Direct, Smile, etc. Nationwide and First Direct have current plus savings accounts where you can easily transfer money from one to the other. I expect Abbey will have an online savings account too.

Check the Motley Fool or Money Expert for different accounts, rates and conditions.

Has to be Nationwide since ATM withdrawals attract no further charges if you need to dip in to the cash.

No charges from Nationwide....... but what about the ATM charges this side of the pond?
