Barclays a bank that is probably better than most
Review of Barclays Bank Accounts by chrisc92

Advantages: Internet banking and leaders in innovation (eg pingit and contactless payment)
Disadvantages: Low interest rates, telephone banking

I have held a Barclays Bank Account since the Stone Age well since January 1985 – still a very long time, and in this time has Barclays shown me any reward for my continued patriotism? In a word, no! When I first applied for a Barclays Bank Account it w ... Read review

I'm afraid I didn't find much that was useful in what you wrote. Maybe you could explain why you chose to use them in the first place, how they decided you were eligible, how much they were prepared to lend you and how much you decided to borrow? by KateHurst
