    Our verdict

    JN Bank currently only has a fixed-term and instant access savings account, so its offer is pretty limited at the moment. Read our savings reviews to see how it weighs up against other savings providers and check if it’s the right choice for you.

    We show offers we can track - that's not every product on the market...yet. Unless we've said otherwise, products are in no particular order. The terms "best", "top", "cheap" (and variations of these) aren't ratings, though we always explain what's great about a product when we highlight it. This is subject to our terms of use. When you make major financial decisions, consider getting independent financial advice. Always consider your own circumstances when you compare products so you get what's right for you.
