“Average, average, no complaints but no big shakes...”

Average, average, no complaints but no big shakes either. Went in to the Halifax bank, was seen within 5 mins although was reminded 3 times i should have made an appointment, i was supposed to feel guilty i think but didnt!!! After all i was giving them money and encouraging my daughter to save.

I find the Halifax Childrens Savings Account really straight forward but was not told that the maximum was £5,000.00. I wanted one account for my baby until he gets older. Soon I will have to change the account as he will have maximum money in… Read Full Review

“My experience with Halifax Buildings Society has...”

Written on: 03/12/2004 by Minal (2 reviews written)

My experience with Halifax Buildings Society has always been good, therefore it was a natural choice when finding a savings account for my child. This was further encouraged by good financial reviews of childrens savings accounts. The interest rate was quite high at 5.05% and the Save4 it card (which accesses the coin bank) for my child is excellent in making a child understand that money just doesn't come out of
'a hole in the wall' and that it has to be saved.
Although, I do worry at times… Read Full Review

Disappointed in the service I received from Halifax. Initial enquiry to open two childrens savings accounts was made prior to the Easter. Took 10 days for appropriate paperwork to be sent out. As I was ill I was not able to get to a local branch to verify identification so Halifax 'closed' the account as no funds had been paid in, when in fact the account had not be fully opened in the first place. Halifax do not have a policy whereby they will contact you within a given period to inform you that your account 'may be closed' if no funds are credited to the account. Their policy is just to close the account. Disappointed with their customer service. Local branch had little information on childrens savings accounts, kept waiting while a member of staff ran around trying to find information.

Campbella's Response to Minal's Review

Written on: 24/10/2005

I agree - children should be encouraged to save in a traditional fun way. Unfortunately, the do gooders in this world have decided that the saying "piggy bank" is offensive to Muslims. How very, very sad. What's more to the point, NatWest the originator of the 'Piggies' have condoned these views. It is actions such as these that stir up racial prejudice.
