Post Office is the bearer of spectacular news after increasing the rates payable on two of its savings accounts.

Its Online Bond is a one year fixed term internet operated account which now pays 3.00%.

Savers are afforded the ability to close the account early on the loss of 90 days' interest, helping it to earn four out of five Moneyfacts stars.

However, even better is the Online Saver account which now pays 2.90%, a rate high enough to make it a market leader amongst its peers.

As it includes a 1.25% bonus for 12 months, savers will have to review the account's competitiveness after a year.

However, certain to prove a big hit with savers happy to conduct their financial affairs over the internet, this account earns the maximum five out of five Moneyfacts stars.
