Misleading description of services offered, very poor customer service, you have 14 days cooling off period, however it took them so long to create the account that I could not cancel it, my money is stuck in this account for a year, would never have any dealings with them again. The website did not fully explain the procedure nor did the customer services, I emailed several times and could believe the time it took them to respond.

My experience of using Post Office Savings was almost identical to that of reviewer 'chrisg86'! I had an instant access account and was able to deposit monies and access statements however was unable to transfer monies out. I informed PO of this problem via their email which is accessed via the savings account but they failed to get back to me within their stated 3 days. I then phoned them only to be told by the rep that they could not do anything as it appeared to be a technical issue. 5 days later I heard nothing so phoned again only to have the rep tell me the only thing she could do was to again refer the matter to their technical dept. Despite this being an instant access account, the only option left was to close my account via letter and have my monies refunded in full. The Post Office was not even courteous enough to apologise for/ respond to any of the matters raised in my letter, simply sent me a closure statement - absolutely dreadful service; I advise that you avoid like the plague!

I was pleased to be able to buy this investment bond when it was available. It has inflation proofing and a good rate. The PO statements are easy to understand too.

The PO credit card is useful as there are no charges for using it when abroad. The down side is that you cannot ring up and pay your card off over the phone. Also, when you ring up for a query, it is quite tricky to get past the automated system and speak to customer services. I would recommend this card for holidays away.

Free to use abroad

Can't pay off over phone

The Post Office deals locally with my Saver Account, Credit Card, Saver Bonds,(NSU) & Premium Bonds. They give the best Foreign currency exchange, keep you up to date with information and offers. I find my local Post Mistress very knowledgeable and will readily offer up to date advice to ensure that you are getting the best rates for your deposits. THEY ARE GENUINELY FRIENDLY AND 10 x BETTER TO DEAL WITH THAN THE BANKS.

Excellent Value. Easy to deal with
