Saga has expanded its range of over 50s accounts with the launch of a new internet account Online Savings, paying a best buy rate of 6.20%. While this rate is very competitive, Northern Rock are paying 6.30%, which doesn't include a bonus, like the Saga deal. Coventry's Sixty-Plus eSave offers the top-paying rate of 6.40% for the over 60's.

Don't always assume that these specialist savings accounts always offer the best rates. Better rates can often be found on accounts available to the whole market. For example, Sainsbury's 6.25% savings account tops the Internet savings accounts best buys.
