This rate applies to sole and joint savings accounts opened online or by telephone, providing customers maintain a balance between £1 and £100,000.
The Sainsbury's Easy Saver offers a rate of 2.70% (which includes a 12 month reward rate, reverting to base* after 12 months) providing the saver does not make more than five withdrawals in this period. If the number of withdrawals exceeds five during the 12-month period or the balance exceeds £100,000, the interest rate will revert to the account's standard interest rate, currently at 0.50% AER Gross.
All Sainsbury's shoppers receive double Nectar points on their shopping in store, online and in petrol filling stations for two years when taking out a Sainsbury's Easy Saver account with a minimum balance of £5,000. For customers spending £50 per week with Sainsbury's, this means £52 worth of Nectar Points a year, on top of highly competitive interest rates.
