Halifax Internet banking review.

Great internet banking facility and really helpful on phone and in branch. The internet banking is second to non you can move funds around accounts and make payments with ease and check up the minute your balance to prevent over spending. I would recommend to anyone even with limited internet experience its a great service. I am yet to experience any problems with Halifax

A proper bank with actual standards

We are all sick of the 'big' banks. Quite apart from the selfish behaviour they have displayed recently my experience of them has left a nasty taste in my mouth. The Halifax are a totally different set up. They don't leave traps for you to fall into and charge you masses for sending you letters instead they treat you as a customer.

honest, quality, service

Halifax Current Account

I currently have the Halifax Reward Account, which gives me £5 reward every month as long as I pay in a minimum of £750 and hold two direct debits. This is quite simple to understand, and I like receiving the same monthly sum rather than annual interest as it means I can budget accordingly. The customer service in-branch was fantastic - I was talked through the various options and really felt like my needs were listened to. I'm also a very big fan of the quality of their on-line banking service linked to this - really easy to navigate and understand. Highly recommended.

Halifax current account

Good product - has lots of good points ie pays £5 a month to you if you put your salary in to it. You do have to have 2 direct debits coming out but this is fairly easy to arrange. They have a good account changing service which will do everything for you.

They also give you £100 when you open your account or move from another bank.

Better than a savings account, but watch out for steep overdraft fees

I transferred my main current account having been with my previous current account for decades. It was the £100 cash back offer that tempted me over to the other side :)

The transfer itself was painless. I was a bit worried, as I had heard some fairly negative reviews. But all was well, and speedy.

I also upgraded my account to take advantage of their '£5 reward every month' offer, so am pretty happy. The only thing I think they are a bit sly on is steep overdraft fees. As a result, I'm more than paranoid about going overdrawn, and check my account daily at least once!
