Nationwide Building Society Savings Reviews

nationwide building society

by richum, 1 day ago
good accounts
Recommended by richum

good, fair and honest building society with a bank account feel. visa card given with even the most basic of accounts. i have been with then for over ten years and the only problem i have is that the balance of account don't always match account available. they say this is because of visa taking the money from your account before the companies take it.

savings accounts you need to keep watching

by gow, 3 days ago
Recommended by gow

they have a lot of different accounts - and are always changing them - so you need to choose carefully. They don't always play fair with their long time members. I have had conflicting information - sometimes wrong - from staff in the branch. Their rates are not very good on many accounts.
I hate having to make appointments to open new products - or switch to new products. Having to go into the branch is a bore.
They do now have a 'savings watch' which e-mails (probably texts too) when new products are coming in or rates are changing.
I like being able to swap between accounts by internet, which helps get the best out of the savings.

No Bother - easy to view and make comparison

by alantu, 4 days ago
easy to view and action
Recommended by alantu

Straight in to the internet - choice of accounts easy transfer of money in and out - excellent rates of interest when compared with competitors

Application is easy just follow the instructions - documentation arrives where necessary and is easily understood and very secure

Nationwide are one of the companies which should always be considered when considering savings options - they are so well known they don't need to advertise

Also when looking for different financial matters eg insurance they have those facilities in house - at least for comparison purcposes

Savings account

by dobste, 4 days ago
Recommended by dobste

With Nationwide, they are up-front, if you go to the high street and ask to speak to an advisor, invariably there will be someone available.
Beware of Santander - they tried to charge me £10 to take my own money out of a savings account. I don't think so!!
With on-line Nationwide you can see all of your savings and can transfer money easily in and out of any account.

good product - shame about the teaser!

by james24, 5 days ago
Recommended by james24

My savings account woith nationwide has just come to the end of its year long teaser rate and has just dumped me onto a low rate product - I knew this was to happen so nothing too unexpected, however from a brand that used to advertise not doing this I feel is poor. I knew this when i took the product so they havent let me down in any way, but now I need to go and find a new account for my hard earned pennies!

Nationwide Building Society

by greydo, 6 days ago
A book to see saving progress.
Interest rates.
Recommended by greydo

We regularly save by visiting a market town some 20 miles away. It gives us a nice day out, we can spend a bit and save a bit, and this is enjoyable! We like the savings book that this building society offers, so we can see our savings grow. Now we know the interest is awful, but we save here for short term items and holidays. The girls who serve us know us by name and are really interested in us, as we are of them! Very pleasant service!

Nationwide saving but only recently switched so no experience to date

by Itsme, 6 days ago
Recommended by Itsme

I have only recently been switched to Nationwide from another provider (merger........ So I havent a lot to comment on as yet regarding my long standing ISA. However I do have comment on their Savings Direct Flex? Account . I applied for a Flex Direct account online and it was lost . I got tot the end and got the confirmation. I rang the customer services two weeks later on a Saturday, they said I needed to ring on a week day (not helpful!??). So I ramg in the week, they didn't know if and account was open , and advised me to go to a branch to enquire..... So I did and they said they "think it's not gone through". No one seemed to know. Not great

A Review of the Nationwide Building Society's Savings Accounts

by MilnerHugh, 6 days ago
Not a limited Company
Current despisable interest rates
Recommended by MilnerHugh

Having opted to be with the Nationwide Building Society's Savvngs Accounts for a proportion of our savings, both short and long-term we are most satisfied with the results, except the current useless interest rates which, you may well know, affects all such financial institutions.

No. I am unable to provide additional information because it would be deleterious to my foregoing utterances.

Good investment in the current economic climate

by littst, 6 days ago
All options are clearly explained
No one has a great return on investments right now
Recommended by littst

There is very little between many of the savings accounts at the moment. As a saver you don't get a lot of interest wherever you save. However, at Nationwide you get a benefit of being a current account holder and are offered a preferential rate, which although not great, is better that offered elsewhere.
They are a secure company and you can be secure in the fact that you will be gaining on your investment.
All the products available were clearly explained to us with all the pros and cons, so that we could make the most informed decicion as to the best savings plan for us.
I would recomment the customer services and the investment advisors if you are looking to invest your money they will certainly give you the best advice around.

Got fantastic 4.25% rate at the time. Now its less than 1%

by ellyg, 6 days ago

Got lucky with a 4.25% flexclusive e-ISA during a bleak time of savings rates, for current account holders that could put £10,000 away (although can withdraw funds from it as many times as you wish for free). Now the rate has plummetted, the product is not worth it. I have since needed the funds anyway, so i've emptied the Account
