What is a 'cash ISA'?

A cash ISA is a savings account where you don’t pay tax on the interest you earn. That’s it! The tax-free bit is the only real difference.

Does Sainsbury’s offer online or mobile banking?

Sainsbury’s offers online banking through its website, but does not have a dedicated mobile app.

Here are some of the basic features of Sainsbury’s online banking service:

  • Check balances for any type of account.
  • Transfer money between accounts
  • Pay bills and people

How do I decide which account is for me?

You need to work out what it is you need from your bank account. Are you looking to put a bit of money away each month? Do you want to put some money away and restrict access to it? Are you after rewards or hoping to maximise interest?

You need to work out what you need before comparing the different offers available for certain types of bank account. Once you’ve done that, useful guidelines to compare include:

  • Interest rates
  • Fees (if there are any)
  • Access to cash (if you need quick access for instance)
  • Rewards and loyalty schemes (if you’re into the add-ons or switching bonuses)
