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

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.

Easy to save money

None that I can think of.

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

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

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.

I have banked with Barclays for 40 years and have found them always to be reliable and trustworthy. I have a deposit account with them which I can add to when I want and although the interest rate is not brilliant, I use this account as a rainy day fund, therefore I can withdraw without penalty and without giving notice. I feel sure that should I need a long term account Barclays would be able to advise me on which one to have

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!

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

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!

I saw this product online when looking for a savings account. I wanted something that was easy to transfer money into on a regular basis but without having to commit to a fixed amount each month. I also wanted something that I could use online and in conjunction with my other accounts as it was to be used as a general savings account where the savings were fora specific short term purpose. The customer service was great in branch and they were helpful in advising me based on my requirements.

Easy to use online and in branch
