Saffron BS has given the online savings market a real boost by markedly increasing the rates paid on two of its internet accounts.

A 0.30% increase on its e-saver Issue 3 and Goal Saver Issue 3 means both accounts now pay a top rate of 3.15%.

They now sit at the top of the table for no notice internet accounts and the e-saver offers one of the top rates for a monthly income.

A cracking pair of savings accounts, five out of five Moneyfacts stars have been awarded.
