Britannia Savings Reviews

Britannia Savings Account

by JMD4, 1 week ago
Good product range
Low interest rate
Recommended by JMD4

Good customer service, easy access to funds. range of products available. On the high street. Just merged with COOP, not sure how that will affect feature services.
Poor rate of interest but no different to other savings providers.
Staff pleasant, have good product knowledge, open saturday mornings.Not used them for anything major such as mortgage, not quite as competative as some of other companies out there.

Britannia Direct Saver Reserve was OK for 6 months

by smithd, 9 Mar 2012
Kept my membership
Rate dropped after 6 months

Opened this account two years ago, noting that it gave a modest 2.0% variable for the first six months only. I wished to keep open my membership of the society, partly so it would be easier to open another Britannia account with better rates. It was limited to 12 withdrawals per year, which was more than enough for me. A snag was that the minimum withdrawal level was set at ?100. After six months the rate dropped by 1.0%. The account could be run by post phone or online. I chose online, which worked satisfactorily. I have now run down my balance to ?1.
