They make it very difficult to use their online banking service - when it comes to trying to get your money out. Several unnecessary validations are needed that mean your instant access account is not really instant access it's a month's notice account. Very dodgy bunch. Stay well clear to avoid stress.

Cancelled policy without notice when notified of building work

I notified Sainsbury's home insurers that I was about to start building work which I had done previously with no problem. They took details and said I would be contacted in 48 hours if any problem. Work commenced 15 days later I had a call to say they were cancelling the policy due to the building work. There was no discussion about extra premiums or any offer at all. I wasn't even offered to let me cancel which would have been fairer, because now I have to inform insurers I have had a policy cancelled even though I have done nothing wrong. They even had the nerve to infer they were doing me a favour as they would waive the cancellation fee, I am not cancelling they Are!
I was left having to find a new insurer mid building work and having had a policy cancelled by Sainsbury's which had led to a very hefty premium. I guess that because they cancelled my policy future premiums will also be higher and all because I was honest and said I was having work done. I find the way this has been handled is appalling and will be advising anyone who will listen not to purchase home insurance from Sainsbury's

Terrible customer service Still waiting for a response to a written complaint made in July. They sent me a reference number but nothing since despite two email reminders and three messages left via on line banking. Sainsbury obviously care nothing about their customers. Time to change banks I think.

Unbelievable incompetence and couldn't give a damn attitude. A mistake by them took months to sort out, eventually the mistake was found by a RIVAL bank. Telephone contact often took between 30 minutes and 1 hour. Not even an apology from them. I've just cancelled this card and will never use this bunch again. Time after time they said there was nothing wrong with their transactions, for weeks and weeks, yet they had transposed one digit and sent £2,900 to a random account.
