I have had an account with Halifax ever since I was a child and my parents opened a children’s savings account with them, but as an adult I decided to keep my savings account with them, and I have been impressed with them for a number of years. I opened an online ISA saver with them, which I deposited a sum of money into, although you can open it with just one pound, so it’s great if you want to build up your savings too. The interest rate I was offered was very competitive in a market that, being mid way through a recession, was really not very healthy, so I was pleased with the interest I got from them.
The staff are always very helpful and friendly in my local branch, and if I ever need any advice they are very quick to offer it to me, but I don’t find they’re trying to sell me products I don’t really need, or that I am going to pay too much for. I always trust their advice and so far it has always served me well, so I will continue to use them to keep hold of the savings I have accrued and what I am able to add to it each month.
