• Looking for a safe, easy & flexible way to save for Christmas?
• Worried about running out of money for last minute presents?
• Do you dread starting the New Year with a hefty credit card bill?
A FAIRshare Christmas Saver Account is an easy & safe way to save for the Christmas season. Saving something each pay day will spread the cost of Christmas and help make next Christmas hassle free.
To encourage you to save, the account is ‘locked’ until November 1st, when you can withdraw your savings and do your Christmas shopping*.
Save from just £1 a week or £5 a month, and we’ll look after your money safely. You will be pleasantly surprised to see your savings grow & make a real difference at Christmas. Use our handy Weekly or Monthly Christmas Saver Charts and see how much you can save for Christmas and perhaps even the January sales too!

* One “free withdrawal “ before the 1st October is permitted. There is a charge of £5 per withdrawal for 2 further withdrawals before 1st October, to encourage you to save for Christmas.
Peace of Mind
In 2006, thousands of people lost all their Christmas savings when Farepak Hamper Company collapsed. Many Hamper Companies, Christmas Clubs & local saving schemes with pubs & societies aren’t secure.
FAIRshare members’ money is protected by the Financial Services Compensation Scheme (FSCS) currently to the value of £85,000.
