Increasing the maximum limit from £25,000 to £35,000 on its personal loans, Sainsbury’s Bank is the only provider to offer loans of this value to both new and existing customers.

The supermarket bank is offering a headline rate of 6.9%(2) APR Representative with repayment terms of up to five years.
