Active savings

Has anyone ever taken a look into active savings, as an example we have Hargreaves Lansdown which seems to be quite good rates compared to others. Never really heard of active savings before coming across the HL accounts.

Here is the layout
Easy access0.55%
6 Months0.80%
9 MonthsN/A
1 Year1.20%
18 Months1.28%
2 Years1.60%
3 Years1.65%
5 Years1.72%

Wouldn't think to lock away money for such a long period of time such as 5 years but the easy access rate seems quite good and the 6 months one giving a 0.80% looks good when comparing to other savings rates I've previously had.
