The Post Office has launched a new issue of its Reward Saver, paying improved rates.

The Reward Saver Issue 2 pays 3.00% yearly (2.96% monthly) including a 1.25% (1.22% monthly) bonus for 12 months.

This new issue of Reward Saver sees an increase in the overall rate of 0.25% to 3.00% achieved by way of an increase to the bonus to 1.25% for 12 months.

The new rate offered is a market leader in the 30 day notice sector, however it can be beaten by no notice accounts with an introductory bonus.

The monthly option at 2.96% should also appeal to those looking to supplement their incomes.

A review will be required in 12 months when the bonus expires.

Four out of five Moneyfacts stars have been awarded.
