Saffron BS has made a grand entrance to the regular savings market with the launch of a new fixed rate deal.

The 12 Month Fixed Rate Regular Saver is a branch or postal operated regular savings account paying 4.00% yearly.

A minimum monthly investment of £10 (maximum £200) is required.

However, unlike many fixed rate regular savings deals, this account offers savers the flexibility to make unlimited withdrawals without penalty, and allows the size of the monthly deposits to be altered.

For being a flexible savings friend, this deal earns four out of five Moneyfacts stars.
