The Money Box Saving Challenge, the lowdown on IFA costs, cutting your credit card limit and court ruling on mobile charges

The Money Box Saving Challenge. We throw down the gauntlet to banks and building societies to match or better NS&I who announced this week that it would move customers on a 0.5% ISA to another ISA offering 2.25%. We talk to Anna Bowes from savingschampion.co.uk about this surprise decision and the best and worse buys around at the moment.

How to get the best out of your IFA: We investigate concerns that changes introduced at the beginning of the year to the way that IFA's are paid might not always be to the benefit of the customer. We speak to Gill Cardy, Managing Director of the IFA Centre and Justin Modray, founder of Candid Money.

Notice on your credit card limit: How much notice should your credit card provider give you if it decides to lower your credit limit. One Money Box listener was sent a letter by his bank this month which effectively set his new limit below his balance. Bob Howard investigates and we'll hear from Peter Tutton, Head of Policy at Stepchange.

Victory over a monster mobile phone charge: We speak to Angela Walsh who took her mobile phone company to court after she received an unexpectedly large bill. Find out how she got on in Saturday's programme.
