Northern Rock Savings Reviews

Cash ISA with a good rate

by smith37, 2 days ago
informative, good atmosphere, friendly staff, good products
rate reduction
Recommended by smith37

I know Northern Rock, now Virgin Money has a cloud over them for things that have occurred in the past however I have enjoyed doing business with them. My cash ISA was one of the highest accessible cash ISAs available in this current climate. They recently reduced the rate which was expected but I was kept informed of my current rate and what the new rate will be and the steps I can take if I don't want to leave it where it it. I wasn't happy about the rate reduction but that is something I can't change but I love how they kept me informed.

Northern Rock Regular Saver - 4% for a year

by smithd, 3 Mar 2012
Fixed 4% for 1 year. Withdrawals without penalty
Recommended by smithd

My Northern Rock regular monthly saver will mature in August 2012 following more than a year at a fixed 4.0% interest. This account was started well before Northern Rock was sold to Virgin Money, but my account is still in place under the new management. Unlike many other one-year regular savings from other providers, this account allows withdrawals at any time without penalty, so should I need the money, I can get at it readily. The monthly maximum is ?250, and it is possible to accumulate up to ?3500 by August, when the interest rate changes to an unspecified value - presumably a low value, so I expect to withdraw the balance at that time. Currently, it seems that Northern Rock is not offering a regular saver, but hopefully, it will do so in the future.

Northern Rock Fixed Rate E-ISA

by glow, 26 Feb 2012
Recommended by glow

Ihad a couple of ISAs from previous years which were making very little interest so decided to transfer them to one with a decent rate, fixed for 1 year. Northern Rock's on-line application was pretty straightforward and once I'd provided them with the requested proof of identity and address, everything was settled and as I hadn't added any new money to the old amounts it meant I could open another ISA using the current year's allowance later when I had the funds.

Virgin Easy Access ISA (Northern Rock 2012)

by biz234, 25 Feb 2012
Easy Access and Choose either yearly or monthy interest.
More feedback when transfering in an Isa from another provider.
Recommended by biz234

This is an excellent product. In these uncertain financial times, I needed an Isa that would give me flexibility with a decent interest rate and this delivers.

My Welcome Pack must have got lost in the post and I only found out when they sent me a e-mail, asking for more information about myself! My Accounts still on "read only Access" for nearly 3 weeks now. I sent them electronic communication 4 days ago and a letter by post 3 days ago, but no reply from them yet, so customer service could do better.

Northern Rock 'Online E-ISA'

by flipside, 23 Feb 2012
Very easy & efficient product to open & receive supporting documents
Recommended by flipside

The information given before and after with regard to this product was very clear. There were absolutely no difficulties in opening the account and it has been one of the easiest products to deal with. There was a very easy enrolment on the internet and they came back very quickly with the supporting documentation. I would recommend the product to anyone wanting to open an online ISA account at this time.

I needed to invest some money and Virgin finance sent me some details of their new ISA which is in conjunction with Northern Rock. It was easy to set up, easy to put the money in the account, and easy to retrieve money from the account. No complaints at all.
