Newcastle BS has launched a pair of new fixed rate bonds that are likely to tempt consumers who prefer to carry out their banking online.

Its fixed rate E-Bond (Issue 2) is a fixed term internet operated account maturing on 25.5.10, paying a yearly rate of 3.61% (3.30% monthly) on a minimum investment of £5K.

The E-Bond (Issue 3) is also a fixed term internet operated account. Maturing on 24.5.11, it pays a yearly rate of 4.11% (3.80% monthly) on a minimum investment of £5K. With both products, no early access is permitted, although additions can be made whilst the issue remains open.

Both E-Bonds from Newcastle BS have been awarded four out of five Moneyfacts stars.
