“Stuck in the dark ages”

Written on: 15/08/2015 by djpreston (2 reviews written)

The rates may be attractive but their processes and procedures are out of the dark ages. Applied for a loan. Approved: "Documents will be sent out from our printers, please sign and return" Why not email populated documents to the email address on the application that you have just checked? "We can't do that." Why not use electronic signatures? "We can't do that" Sigh.... Why not send royal mail guaranteed overnight rather than charge £50 for a courier? "We can't do that". Wait… Read Full Review

“FANTASTIC AND SUPER QUICK 10/10”

Written on: 13/08/2015

WELL WHAT CAN I SAY applied on Monday and received the application on Wednesday and sent it back the same day and Tesco bank received it Thursday morning and money in my bank by 2pm the same day. That's what you call a top service and interest A.p.r over 10 years is by far the best. Thank you Tesco bank for such a fantastic service . Please ignore the bad reviews as it a load of nonsense… Read Full Review

“slow service”

Written on: 30/07/2015 by Corcoran416 (1 review written)

We applied for a loan on 16th July via internet and were accepted, then received a text on 23rd July to say good news, your loan has been approved subject to some final checks, please sign and return the paperwork. The same text came through again on the 30th July. But with no sign of any paperwork. In the end I cancelled the application as I really could not wait much longer. Also beware they charge 28 days interest before you even start to repay the loan. It would have helped to know how… Read Full Review

“Loan customer for 5 years rate quoted twice that of others”

Written on: 10/07/2015 by ybot1983 (3 reviews written)

10k Loan customer for 5 years after loan was coming to the end. I rang the existing loan line for a quote, usual BS about 3.9 %, real quote 9%. They sent paperwork. Out of curiosity applied to Sainsbury online not phone, same amount, quoted 5% with record as new customer. As these companies use computers rather than people, they have no loyalty so the customers dont. Also they didnt even chase for the paperwork when i didnt send it back, so they failed twice… Read Full Review

“Book well in advance”

Written on: 11/05/2015 by foxcraft (1 review written)

Don't expect efficiency from this bank. Paid £50 for the Tesco courier in the hope that it might speed things up. 48 hours later no contact from them, despite several phone calls from me. Pointless, might as well relayed on the Royal Mail . So, whilst it has a modern internet website the 1970's customer support undermines it all. I know the rate is low but if you're expecting normal standards of administrative efficiency look elsewhere… Read Full Review

“Fantastic Service. Would Highly Recommend”

Written on: 08/05/2015 by 367Smith (1 review written)

I don't normally write reviews however considering the negative reviews I felt that I should share my own experience. I applied for a £5,000 loan on Tuesday evening at around 5pm and received a call shortly after confirming I had been approved at the headline rate of 5.7%. I received the loan agreement Thursday morning which I signed and returned straight away (I wasn't asked to send any further documentation in). Got a call today (Friday) confirming paperwork received and the money would be… Read Full Review

“Great: Service, Application Process, Speedy deposit”

Written on: 27/03/2015 by tgMcCleary80 (1 review written)

As everyone out there, have a bit of Outstanding Balances . Namely, NW 2 credit cards with balances of 1) £280/1200 2) £1370/2500 + Barclaycard 3) £3270/8200 + Catalogues a) £190/1250 b) £220/1050 & Personal Loan £2570/4500 taken almost 3 years ago for a length of 5 years. The above, aside from 2 Mobile Contracts of £23 & £31pcm respectively. Without getting too much into details, you could imagine the average APR on them being between 18-22% PA. Thus, had to look for an alternative… Read Full Review

“Ab Fab”

Written on: 25/03/2015 by BraydenAllen1976 (1 review written)

Following a rejection from my own bank I was slightly concerned. As a household we earned more than 3 times the requested loan amount. We have open, long standing and well maintained credit cards with nominal balances. Pondering the refusal from my bank I therefore applied for a copy of my credit file from Credit Expert to find my score was 992 and Excellent. I Googled loans and Tesco came top of best buy tables. I therefore applied online and was given an immediate acceotance. I requested the… Read Full Review

“Tesco what a life saver!”

Written on: 24/03/2015 by brigitab (1 review written)

When after university I had £10k in credit cards debt charging me 34.9% APR I applied for a loan to refinance those and my own bank rejected my application even after I was managing my finances quite well for 6 months and got a rather well paid job. I had no hope as I was continuously paying off something that won't get paid off. I constantly felt under pressure. I started looking for alternative ways to borrow and Tesco Bank came very well reviewed. The process was very easy and… Read Full Review

“Excellent service!”

Written on: 20/02/2015 by KateO1234 (1 review written)

I applied for a loan on-line on 15/2/2015 which didn't take long to complete. Following the submission of my loan application I was informed that the loan was now complete and the good news was that they could offer me a loan at the rate offered at 4.1%. I opted for the courier service and Tesco rang on 16/2/2015 and arranged for the courier to bring the documentation for me to sign on 17/02/2015. The courier arrived as promised and took the signed documentation with them. To my surprise I… Read Full Review

“Pleasantly suprised”

Written on: 16/02/2015 by Ljaycarter (1 review written)

After seeing the interest rates had lowered I looked at transferring my current 12% apr loan to cut costs and came across this one for tesco for 4.1% apr. With nothing to lose and a potential saving of over £3,000 I decided to apply for a £14,500 loan to repay my old one. The application process was very quick and easy and took around 5 minutes to complete. I was a bit disappointed when after the home page promised an instant decision that I was informed that my loan had been passed to the… Read Full Review

“Tesco give you a chance ”

Written on: 05/02/2015 by DominikMarshall (1 review written)

After applying for a loan at lots of different high street banks, I was rejected by all but two - my own bank who offerred me a rediculous APR of 26.6%, and then Tesco, who offered me a fair APR of 9.5%. After applying online, Tesco approved my loan in principle. I then had to provide 6 weeks of bank statements. A few days after providing these, an underwriter called me to check what the purpose of my loan was for, and then transferred it - I received it about 30 minutes later. I couln't… Read Full Review

“Don't believe the negative reviews”

Written on: 25/01/2015 by Wilsonk386 (1 review written)

Applied for a personal loan of £7K on Monday via phone. Excellent customer service and application took approx 20mins. Loan was approved without any further information needed with a good APR of 5.7%. Papers arrived on Wednesday, signed and posted away. Money in my account on Sunday. Can't fault it at all and would recommend. This is second time taking out loan with Tesco and both times been really positively surprised as a lot of negative reviews in different sites… Read Full Review

“Fast and Easy”

Written on: 20/12/2014 by Zanderd304 (1 review written)

Applied for this loan to consolidate £8,000 of debt. paperwork was received 2 days after applying, returned documents next day (100% worth sending guaranteed 1pm next day delivery signed for to ensure paperwork doesn't get lost - that's £6 with royal mail, NOT the £50 courier service they offer) and they received my paperwork on Saturday and money was paid into my account that day. And that day was a Saturday. It was surprising how fast this happened considering it is also 5 days before… Read Full Review
