Barclays let me know which is the best savings account when the interest rates change, they are always helpful and friendly

easy to deal with
low interest
Recommended by suegaz

good basic savings account-easy to manage but low savings rates
barclays easy to find on the high street
you get what you expect

Flexible easy
Poor interest rate

Very flexible easy to use Internet based savings account easy transfer to and from other Barclays accounts but interest rate is tragic

Ease of use
Unable to rename cash payments made into my account at a branch
Recommended by catbroom

It is very useful to be able to rename various online savings accounts so that the names are meaningful to the account holder. This also makes it very easy to transfer money between accounts without having to remember account numbers.

Local staff extremely good. Good on-line banking system
Directors remunerations. Low rate of interest for savers.

It appears that Barclays, together with nearly all the major banks, have forgotten that they need themedium size investors & savers!!!

Good interest rates and instant access if you need it
Only downside is you can't put more than £250 in to start or mon
Recommended by seljones

I have a regular savings account and a monthly saver. The monthly saver gives 3% interest and you can pay £50-250 a month into it. Its a great way to save and gives a nice little bonus if you keep squirreling away money for the year. One of the best currently on the market.

I have account only in Barclays bank and in Postoffice account for benefits.
I had not any problem with Barclays bank only the last year 07.06. 2012 I lost £ 99.98 with strange tel call when man asked my cards number,exp.date and security 3 numbers.I didnt answer,after I received 3-4 calls and I thought they were calling from bank and said numbers and I did mistake.The next day I arrived to bank and skope with managers and they said:We cannot to do something!I asked to stop money transfer for somebody...but they didnt do something and didnt call and didnt ask fraud police agency.I lost this money vry fast nobody to return back something so long time and fraud police agency didnt answer to my complain because the sum was under £ 100.I called many times this Orchid studious ,I had written so a lot e-mails and sms but they didnt answer and dont want to return back money.Here is not mistake- THEY ARE FRAUDERS and BARCLAYS BANK MANAGERS didnt do something to stop it all.

Ease of management with online services
Customer service
Recommended by RLF

Online service great - very weel designed and easy to use.

Mobile app really helpful

Card Key a bit inconvenient - but happy that they seem to be addressing safety issues.

Customer Service is terrible with people on the other end of the phone half the world away that have no real understanding and don't seem to really want to help

Excellent Internet banking & customer service
They haven't got the best rates
Recommended by cabrah

It is a decent account, it's interest is 1% a year which isn't the best on the market, but it also isnt the worst. Barclay's make up for this though, with what I believe to honestly be the best internet banking and customer service between all the banks. Their 'pinsentary' service provided is excellent- easy to use and gives you that extra feeling of sercurity- furthermore I've often found with other internet banking, their website doesnt function efficiently- I don't know if thats because alot of people are using it or something.. but with Barclays I never have this problem. Moreover within actual banches I've often found the staff to be just a bit more helpful, perhaps its because they often have the self service machines which takes pressure off them and makes them a bit happier

They did give me a loan
The loan has shocking interest rates

Even though I have been a Barclays customer for over 12 years, when I approached them for my first personal loan, the best interest rate they could give me was 22.5%, which is awful and no better for me than if I just picked some random company for a loan.
I honestly thought staying in their good books and proving myself to them over the years, would result in a more rewarding attitude, when I finally required a loan.
But apparently, I am just another customer like everyone else, no-one gets offered special rates and it's based on how well you've kept your finances wihilst being with Barclays, is what I was told on the phone. Ok, fair enough if that's your policy, but I don't know what else I could've done to make them happy/happier.
