Tesco is standing by its motto that 'every little helps' by increasing the rate on its Internet Saver account by up to 0.75%.

The rise is more than welcome, given that savings rates have hit historic lows in recent months.

As a result, it now pays 3.00% on balances of up to £100K, making it one of the top paying no notice accounts in the market.

However, it does include a bonus rate of 1.75% that will end after 12 months, making it essential to reassess the account's competitiveness in a year's time.

If this seems like the account for you, don't head for the supermarket, as it's an account that can only be operated via the internet. Check our internet savings accounts best buy chart and introductory bonus best buy chart for other great variable rate offers.

the Tesco Internet Saver account has been awarded four out of five Moneyfacts stars.
