If you're having less luck than Derren Brown in predicting the lottery numbers, the new online bond from Barnsley BS could give your finances a welcome boost.

A fixed term internet operated account, the new issue of the Three Year Online Bond pays 4.70% yearly (4.60% monthly), 0.55% more than its predecessor.

Minimum investment is £100, while additions are allowed whilst the issue remains open.

Early access to your funds is not permitted and with a maturity date of 28 February 2013, money needs to be committed for nearer three and a half years.

However, with the rate available amongst the best in the three to four year term bond market, this magic little product earns four out of five Moneyfacts stars.
