Sainsbury's Finance has reviewed its fixed rate accounts, improving their rates and their standing within their respective markets.

The 1 Year Fixed Rate Saver account now pays 3.40% (+0.05%), while the 2 Year pays 3.95% (+0.10%).

Monthly options will also increase, while all other terms and conditions remain unchanged.

At 3.40% for one year and 3.95% for two years, both options move into the top six for their respective terms.

As is common with many fixed rates, no earlier access or additions are permitted.

Four out of five Moneyfacts stars have been awarded.
