Sainsbury’s Bank Continues To Offer Sub 5% Apr Representative Loans Post Rate Sale

18 November 2013


Sainsbury’s Bank continues to offer one of the most competitive personal loans rates even after its rate sale has ended, with an APR Representative of 4.9% on Standard loans between £7,500 and £15,000 taken over one to three years.

For customers taking out a Standard loan over four or five years, the rate is 5.0% APR Representative which is more competitive than before Sainsbury’s Bank’s most recent rate sale.

Simon Ranson, Head of Banking at Sainsbury’s Bank said: “We remain committed to offering our customers some of the best rates available in a very competitive market. Testament to this is the fact that our rates remain a best buy even when we are not offering a rate sale.”
