Reviews for Fixed Rate Savings Account 1 Year

  • Competitive rates of interest WonderWoman1

    This offers an adequate rate of interest, as I wished to keep my money in Aldermore. This is bearing in mind the current indecision of the Bank of England as to whether to raise interest rates and my decision not to enter into a Bond of over a year in all the circumstances.

  • Easy to set up and manage. nick48

    I switched from a fixed term bond which I had held for the previous 12 months. The process of transferring was hassle-free, and the rate of interest on offer was competitive. I was happy to open this account, and I would not hesitate to recommend this account to others, as it was easy to set up and my options were clearly explained.

  • efficient/excellent service Pippajr5

    I have invested with Aldermore previously; each time the service could not be faulted and more particularly the annual statement or certificate pertaining to the payment of interest, gross and net, has been very promptly provided after the closure of the fiscal year.. This I consider is of very great importance.

  • Poor Return Al14

    While it is the case that I recently opened this account the truth is that I only reinvested 10% of my original capital which had matured from an existing Aldermore product.Why .Because they cut the rate. Now I am told my cash ISA rate will fall in October. Aldermore used to be at the front of the pack. Sadly no longer. Look elsewhere,you can probably do better.

Reviews for Fixed Rate Savings Account 2 Year

  • Like the curates egg - good in parts TwoTone

    Telephone service is prompt and courteous. However two points follow:- No 1 Internet access can be annoying - as first incorrect log in attempt shuts the account rather than allowing at least one more attempt. No 2 Recently I wanted to add more funds to a maturing Aldermore FRB which I had just renewed. 30 days after renewal were allowed for this, but the bank transferring funds in fouled up the transfer. I had already written to Aldermore to advise them of the source of additional funds and the amount. Although funds could have been transferred successfully by the 31st day, Aldermore were not prepared to stretch the time limit - even marginally. Where was the sound commercial practice in that?

  • The best of the bunch Beatie

    I can only comment on the ease of setting up this account and the friendly way it was dealt with. As I have a couple of days before the account is up and running I cannot comment further but I'm sure it will be all it is cracked up to be.

  • Opening account. Ivy2

    All went well except paying my money in, I set up a Direct Debit but your wording was confusing ie I did not know if I had to pay into my account so I email you and you said you could not answer the question. So I paid it in on 16/07/2014, that was wrong you took the same amount out of my Bank which leaves me overdrawn. I phoned you and you said this would be sent to my Bank and I understand this has been done and should be in my Bank by 20/07/2014.

  • It does exactly what it says on the tin! Happyme

    No waiting for hours to get through or button pressing when I did. Very helpful staff, keeping everything to the minimum with no endless waffle. We discussed the options, I made decisions and off we went! A simple confirmation letter in the post a few days later and it was all done. Why aren't there more companies like this?

  • Easy to Open an a/c Roni

    I opened a 5year fixed interest account as the rate of interest was attractive. The on-line application was fairly simple & quick procedure. However, after openning the account I tried to log on and encountered difficulty. Rang the Bank. Was answered very quickly ( no waiting time) and the staff helped me out. I rang the Bank this morning as i wanted to xfer the money in. Again quick connection & helpful staff.
