Compare Sainsbury’s savings accounts

Sainsbury’s Bank is wholly owned by the supermarket chain Sainsbury’s. It has a range of financial products for savers, with their various products aimed at different kinds of savers. Knowing which is the best fit for you requires some research, so we have laid out the key types of savings accounts Sainsbury’s Bank offers below to make things easier.

Instant Access Savings Accounts

For savers with a lump sum that they want to be able to add to or withdraw from at their convenience, an instant access account is a good choice. You will normally be able to make a large deposit when you open the account, then make additional deposits and withdrawals whenever you need to.

You may be issued a cash card, which gives you the freedom to make withdrawals at a cash point. Most instant accounts now come with phone and telephone banking making it quick and easy to carry out transfers. Some instant access accounts will place a yearly limit on how many withdrawals you can make and there may be a penalty, such as loss of interest, if you exceed this limit.

Fixed Rate Bonds

If you have a lump sum that you do not need to use in the near future, a fixed rate bond (sometimes called a “fixed term account”) can help you maximise your return. In exchange for agreeing not to touch your money for a set period (often 1 to 5 years), you will be given a guaranteed interest rate for the duration of that set period. The longer the bond lasts, the better interest rate you will receive, making this a great deal for long term savers.

Cash ISAs

For most UK tax payers it is likely to be worthwhile placing at least some of your savings into an ISA. ISAs allow you to earn interest without paying tax on it, but only for deposits up to a yearly limit set by the government. For the 2017/18 tax year that amount is £20,000.

ISAs generally fall into two main camps – instant access and fixed term. Instant access cash ISAs pay variable interest rates, but allow you to put in and take out money whenever it is convenient for you. Fixed term cash ISAs generally pay slightly higher rates which are fixed for the life of the ISA. However, like with a fixed rate bond, you cannot take money out of a fixed term ISA until it reaches maturity.
