Yes I bank with and hold shares in Santander & BARC. I find Sant quite good but ..........Barclays levels of service are appalling !! eg They never, ever answer the phone. I was in line waiting to be served the other day for 12 minutes !! There were 10 to 15 people waiting , only 2 windows open BUT low and behold in the foyer area there were 5 staff waiting to pounce trying to sell something or sitting on their ar**s poking at a screen !
Just seen we both posted the same link - great minds and all that!! ATB.
RE: Re Looking good
In a recent survey Santander came second behind first direct, with 72% of customers rating them as great - a figure only beaten by first direct's 92% - and only 6% of customers rating them as poor. http://www.moneysavingexpert.com/news/banking/2014/08/first-direct-comes-top-while-barclays-gets-the-wooden-spoon-in-mses-latest-banking-service-index I have two bank accounts, one with first direct and the other with Santander, and I rate them both as excellent with great online platforms and excellent customer service. I now have my rainy day money with Santander earning 3% on instant access, and earn £8-£10 a month cashback on my council tax and utility bills - something no other bank offers.
RE: Re Looking good
Even that seems to be going up a bit: http://www.moneysavingexpert.com/news/banking/2014/08/first-direct-comes-top-while-barclays-gets-the-wooden-spoon-in-mses-latest-banking-service-index
Re Looking good
It might also help if they had a better reputation for service!
