Barclays Savings Reviews

Online accounts are easy to use

by GeorgeW, 2 days ago
Easy Access
Poor rates
Recommended by GeorgeW

I've had various savings accounts & they have always been simple to set up and use.

Access is fine, some have limited access but that is made clear.

Online you can name your accounts so you can have one called "Holiday" & one called "Christmas" etc so you can keep savings pots separate & labelled.

It's easy to transfer money between savings & current accounts.

The branch staff have always been professional & friendly.

no good at all, leave

by no1nonblonde, 2 days ago

very friendly staff if or when you get in touch with them at the call center, hard to find the phone number as they have that many to choose from and you always get asked stupid questions like i have a special offer for you today always trying to sell you insurance or something else .when you just want to ask a simple thing.

Ive been with them for over 14 years now and im thinking of leaving them for a different bank.

Barclays bank review

by clarestar, 3 days ago
low charges
Recommended by clarestar

I have so far found them to be fantastic, I have been with them for over a year, with 2 accounts, and I am on my 2nd free year of Kaspersky protection for all my computers, which you get free when you are with Barclays!

If I have gone overdrawn it has only been for a matter of hours and I have not been overcharged, other banks I have been with I have had constant charges for being overdrawn and they have been extortionate! This is why I switched to Barclays because if I ever do make this mistake it is only about £8, rather than £25!

Barclays Monthly Saver

by pwalker65, 3 days ago
Recommended by pwalker65

I have found it very useful to have an account which takes a set amount each month and puts it aside at a good rate of interest. I foudn that Barclays did this and my local Branch was very helpful in helping me to set it up. I had to open a current account in order to do this, but this has also been useful at times ( I used to have a current accoutn with Barclays some years ago but found that other banks gave better interest rates so I changed)

The account was very easy to operate and I paid into it for a year until the rate came down and made it not such a good account to keep.

I would recommend this to anyone wanting to save on a regular basis and I am looking forward to when Barclays starts their next monthly saver (I was told that this may not be until the start of next year)

I love Barclays, the customer service is always excellent, I cannot fault the friendliness of their staff and the advice they are always willing to give. Having had a savings account with them for some time, on a recent visit they were quick to advise me of a better savings plan and the best way to go about saving and interest rates

ease of use
interest rate
Recommended by claire55

Easy to access your account online, on phone or in branch. Great customer service.

Interest rates could be higher! I've always banked with Barclays so it seemed natural to have my savings there too.

I have no qualms, they're a reliable reputable company. I'm regularly updated by them and I actually got a letter last week saying that their rates are increasing!

easy to use
they make alot of changes to site.
Recommended by wjow

Easy to access, funds and the online banking is useful. Transfers and payments are easy to set up and change. The tellers are helpful in-store an they have many products they are willing to help you find what is best for you. Our mortgage was easy to set up and they give lots of advice on product options when it's time to renew. They've always been helpful when we have questions, no matter how small. They contacted us immediately, the time they discovered someone had gotten a hold of my husband's card details and were able to sort the problem straight away.

A wise thing to do.

Easy to save money
None that I can think of.
Recommended by Matayoo

Barclays offers customers the chance to open up accounts to which no tax is payable on and these may include ISA's that are easy to set up and to understand. The members of staff do a lot more to advise customers on how they can access their money when they need it and they offer advice on how to transfer money from one account to another via online banking.
