Sainsbury's Bank

3 Lochside Avenue, Edinburgh Park, Edinburgh, EH12 9DJ

Sainsbury’s was the first major British supermarket to open a bank, commencing trading in February 1997.  In 2014, J Sainsbury plc bought the Lloyds Banking Group share and the bank became 100% owned by Sainsbury’s.

Sainsbury’s Bank offers a range of financial products which includes credit cards, savings and loans, mortgages, and car, home, pet, travel and life insurance.  The Bank also has more than 250 Travel Money Bureaux at Sainsbury’s stores across the UK and a large, free to use ATM estate.  Integration with Argos Financial Services is well underway following Sainsbury’s Bank’s acquisition of the business in September 2016 at the time J Sainsbury acquired Argos (Home Retail Group).  The business adds storecards and warranties to the Bank’s product suite.
