Barnsley BS has launched a couple of new accounts, both of which pay a cracking rate of 3.00%.

The 1 Year Online Bond and the 1 Year Fixed Rate Bond are operated online and by telephone and post respectively.

Both require a minimum investment of £100, which pays 3.00% yearly (2.96% monthly). No early access is permitted on either product, although additions can be made whilst the issue remains open.

As with most fixed rate bonds, there is no flexibility for withdrawals so investors will need to be certain they can commit to funds for the full term.

Four out of five Moneyfacts stars have been awarded.
