Barclays Savings Reviews

Saving for the future for the family

by mozida, 2 days ago
Easy access to money
Recommended by mozida

Interest rate is quite good if you are looking to earn interest but I like the fact that although it is a saving account you can get your money whenever you want
The bank always informs you if there is abetter product with them and switching is very easy and very quick
The account is very easy to understand and not filled with jargon which people find hard to understand

Reliable and easy to access account

by Chellebaby, 1 week ago
Acess online
Average interest rate
Recommended by Chellebaby

The account was easy to set up in the branch and I regularly access the account online using the Barclays app on my mobile phone. I can pay in at a branch or do a transfer online and can get a printed statement online.

The account accrues monthly interest and I can get a monthly statement or search transactions. The rate is not the best on the market but is easy to deal with any issues in branch.

by demaine, 1 week ago
Flexibility of their online solution

I used to use barclays for all my banking needs until the banking crisis. I had been unhappy for a while so switched after the crisis but find the flexibility of their online solution excellent for managing savings so have kept my savings with them while I try to find a comparable solution.You can create little pots of money for things you are saving for and can see them all when you go online at a glance. Easy to move money around from one pot to another. Everything can be done online and the also dip give you free anti virus software so you know you are safe online. Fortunately I never need to ring them as their customer service is outside this country. I feel I have compromised by staying with them and would definitely not recommend them to anyone else.

Barclays e-savings reward account

by aliona17, 2 days ago
easy to use
interst is not too high
Recommended by aliona17

I have been Barclays customer for years and have a few savings accounts with them. E-savings reward is an account that is easy to manage online. The interest rate is higher than on everyday savings account or on instant savings account, but lower than ISA and nothing much better than other banks have to offer. I normally use it as a place to keep that extra cash for which I have not yet found any better use, but when I had already exceeded my ISA limit for the year.

Barclays Savings - The Company to deal with and stay with

by RJS, 1 week ago
Use Online Banking - it's a snip
Barclays have closed many small branches
Recommended by RJS

Barclays have many savings accounts - so you will find one that suits your needs. A well established company that appears on many high streets. The customer service in the branches is excellent as you can always get an appointment to talk to people that know their company and its services back to front. Keeping in contact with Barclays could not be easier and you will constantly hear of new offers and experiences.

Long standing customer

by Janaki, 1 week ago
Great customer service at my local branch
Recommended by Janaki

I first banked with Barclays back in 70s when they came along to the hospital where I was a student nurse to 'help' us decide on banking our dosh. I'm still connected to Barclays after all these years though now It's more to do with my saving accounts. I've had helpful advice from their staff and the customer service at my local branch is excellent. I probably should shop around more but I'm so happy with their customer service I've stayed put.

ISA with Barclays

by romany, 1 week ago
Easy to transfer money
Recommended by romany

I set up my ISA with Barclays about 2 years after opening my current account with them. It was very easy to do and was completed in branch during a visit when I was paying in a cheque.

The Barclays mobile banking app lets me easily transfer money into my ISA from my current account so I never need to go into a branch to do this. It also lets me transfer money back to my current account should I need to.

The interest rate is low at the moment but that's the same everywhere and I don't make much money from it. I am able to withdraw funds without forfeiting interest though which I like as I know some ISAs essentially lock your money away for a year and it's good to know I can easily get to my funds in an emergency.

Barclays savings account

by michelle82, 1 week ago
Easy to use
Recommended by michelle82

Never had any problems with this savings account. Can transfer money in and out very easily. Even from my mobile phone. Would recommend it highly to anyone who wants a straightforward savings account. Can be accessed online and in branch. Customer service always second to none and friendly and helpful staff. Gives a great interest rate and money can be accessed immediately with very little penalty. The money can be transferred in and out through online banking and mobile app on an iPhone or tablet and can be transferred to other non Barclays accounts in the same way.

Barclays Current and Savings accounts

by vbandsbgirl, 1 week ago
quick, helpful, convenient
internet banking
Recommended by vbandsbgirl

Able to come from the USA and quickly get an appointment (same day) to set up a savings account and current account. They were helpful and gave us the time we needed to set things up.
When I first tried HSBC the soonest appointments were weeks off. The only difficult piece is the internet banking which is time consuming. Also I was not able to download the Barclay app until I switched my iTunes for my iPhone to the UK
