Barnsley Building Society is standing tall in the savings market with the launch of two market leading short term fixed rate bonds.

Both the One Year Online Bond and the One Year Fixed Rate Bond pay 3.05%, or 3.01% if the monthly option is selected.

The former is operated online, while the latter can be serviced by telephone or post.

As with most fixed rate bonds, early access to funds is not permitted, so savers will need to be certain they can commit funds for the full term.

Four out of five Moneyfacts stars is Barnsley's reward.
