The all singing and dancing new range of fixed rate bonds from Barnsley BS has certainly got the X-Factor.

The newly launched four year Online Bond is a fixed term internet operated account paying 5.00% yearly (4.89% monthly.

Sitting just below the leading rate in the market, it is sure to capture the judges' attention.,

Meanwhile, the two year version paying a rate of 4.00% yearly (3.93% monthly) nestles comfortably in the top third of two year bonds.

Both bonds offer the flexibility of allowing new additions while the issue remains open, although it should be noted that you won't be allowed early access to your money.

Not even Simon Cowell could argue against the four out of five Moneyfacts stars these new products have been awarded.
