West Bromwich BS has given savers a reason to cheer by launching a longer term issue of its popular E Bond.

The fixed term internet operated account matures on 30 April 2011 and pays 4.05% yearly on a minimum investment of £5K.

Early access and further additions are not permitted but this is in line with most fixed rate products and it should still appeal to those that are happy to carry out their banking online.

At 4.05%, it pays just below the top rates for two year bonds, earning the E Bond four out of five Moneyfacts stars.
