Barclays Savings Reviews

A wise thing to do.

by Matayoo, 2 days ago
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.

Saving with Barclays

by Seajay, 2 days ago

As with all the banks if you have one saving account, If another account comes along at a later date which is better, Barclays do not tell you. I would not recommend any savingsa account with any bank as there is no consistency with the customer service. However I will say that the Barclays customer service do respond promptly

Barclays savings account and management

by ibby22, 3 days ago
Ease of account management, online security and easy access
Recommended by ibby22

Might not have the best rate but their services including online and account management are great. The security level offered compared to my other savings account with another lender are brill. Gives you that peace of mind. Have been with for years and will stay with them. The customer service is great and you can also mange your account via an app which again is securely protected. Miles better than other lenders

All been said,no more left to tell

by SLL57, 3 days ago

Low bank rate low return.
I have yet again to type ad nauseum.
I cannot give details on the least interesting experience in my life.
Some money in a savings account,very small amount added,the end.
This now very quickly becoming as tedious as anything I have done in a very long time.
Another sentence,this starting to take on the appearance of a sentence, a punishment for beginning this folly.

Savings Accounts, always check the interest rates

by mbcomper, 3 days ago
That face to face contact has great benefits over online facilities
Digital has some advantages but is still lacking a human touch
Recommended by mbcomper

I was unaware of the specific interest rates on my savings accounts. For some reason, banks don't always advertise interest rates to their existing customers with their online banking facilities, albeit I have requested that my bank ought to do this for their online customers. However, banks do advertise interest rates heavily when they wish to attract new customers or offer new products.

However, my current interest rates on some of my savings accounts were unknown to me until I visited my local branch, which can I say I haven't done for a very long time due to other commitments and the use of online or telephone banking facilities, which tend to suit my hectic lifestyle.

The lady cashier was very helpful in advising me that the promotional interest rate on one of my savings accounts had now just expired and if I wished, she could close this savings account and I could apply for the same savings account again and benefit from another promotional interest rate for the next 12 months, rather than just receiving a nominal interest rate which had now been applied to my savings account.

I thought that was excellent customer service provided to me by the lady cashier, it is a shame I don't receive the same excellent service from my bank when using their telephone and online banking facilities. Where I am normally transferred to a call centre overseas and no-one has the time or inclination to listen to your request and or needs, I just feel like I've been put on a conveyor belt and been processed like an online order. There appears to be no concern for customers nowadays when we are dealing with overseas call centres.

Barclays Savings Accounts

by katrin11, 3 days ago
Online Banking
low interest rates

Ease of access to the account, great online banking and also the mobile app.
Customer service always good and calls answered fairly quickly.
The savings account itself has low rates but ok for small rainy day fund which can easily be transferred via online banking/standing orders or a direct debit.
If you bank with Barclays then you can easily transfer between accounts.
The mobile app has recently been updated and very easy to use.

by evieturner, 3 days ago
Shorter qs for the machines
Long qs for a human teller
Recommended by evieturner

Reading is automated one teller on, human!! but lots of help to use the machines, once you get used to it it will be fine ,except what about the poor staff ? are they all going to loose their jobs to machines ,!! whilst in the q heard many people saying they would be closing their accounts .feel sorry for the oldies that havnt got a clue how to use the new machines ,they want the human touch they enjoy the personal touch

by HannahLeanne, 1 week ago
ease of use, local branch, good account managers
Recommended by HannahLeanne

I bank with Barclays and have my savings with them too!
If I have any problems I can either call them on the FREE phone number or pop into my local branch and speak to a friendly advisor!
I've always had a fast, reliable and efficient service from this bank and currently get a great savers rate too! I'd definitely recommend this bank for savings and everyday banking.

Barclays Saving Account Review

by trinbuty, 2 weeks ago
Good customer service
very poor interest rate

They pay very little interests I would not recommend it . I would advise that they shop around for a better paying interest account. I feel my money is safe and I have easy access to it when I need it. I also have an ISA with them but I don't think that they pay the best interest , but what I like is that I don't have to thigh up my money for a given period of time to make more interest
Customer service was good .
