I have an Online Saver account which is cumbersome inasmuch as it requires a feeder account and takes 5 days for money to be transferred in or out of the savings account. My main criticism, however, is the complete lack of customer service. I emailed a query to the website 9 months ago (August 2012) and, despite receiving an automated reply promising action within 5 to 10 days, I am still waiting for their answer.

In addition, the recent "improvements" to their Telephone Banking service mean that you now spend double the… Read Full Review

For an 'internet bank' they are hilariously slow to respond to their so-called 'secure messages' which you can send when you're logged into your account. There are also a variety of things they aren't able to do through that, because apparently it isn't secure enough O.o I didn't really know how to respond to that. 2 days is really not an appropriate wait time when the whole idea of an 'internet bank' is that you should be able to do everything electronically. Overall, I would not… Read Full Review
