Coventry b soc Online not recommended

A year ago Internet Banking was easy until I was locked out! Trying to access a new Internet Account proved very long winded and in the end I gave up and withdrew funds except for bonds. Not recommended! M King

Still living in the 20th century

tried to open an account online - the normal way to do it nowadays. All that happens is that they send you an envelope of paper which took so long to arrive I had forgotten that I had made the application. not sure I can be bothered frankly

Good savings product

Receive a decent interest rate for saving a set amount each month to be held for a fixed period of time. Easy to set up online. Staff available to talk with on the phone for help and guidance if required.

The best

I like Coventry Building Society. They are up to date and offer some good rates of interest across their products. I have recently opened an easy access saver which gives one of the best interest rates out there.

Best Incompetant Building Society 2019 - Coventry

Still waiting for my WEB ID three months after opening an account. Coventry are unable to explain why I havn't received my web id. They can't supply it in branch, on line or by post. In the 21st century this has to be the most incompetant building...

Still waiting for my WEB ID three months after opening an account. Coventry are unable to explain why I havn't received my web id. They can't supply it in branch, on line or by post. In the 21st century this has to be the most incompetant building society ever.

I have just opened a savings account with them and I have never before found setting up and registering for online banking so annoying, long-winded and frustrating!

I almost gave up with the amount of paperwork and failed attempts I made!

However, the 2.5 % interest is the best I could find on the market at the moment with a maximum of £500 a month paid in for a year.

Both me & my spouse have used this company for a few years & have been consistently impressed by their professionalism, loyalty & savings rates nearly always above those offered by other more lauded & popular organisations who invariably fall down badly in the customer care department. Coventry provide a service for all & do not push their clients down the current road of insisting on internet banking, again unlike the more 'usual suspects'. They cater for all in that they deal in branch, by post, by phone & online. I cant recommend them highly enough & its been a pleasure speaking with their customer advisors.

Reliable but difficult

I feel as though my money is very secure with this company, I've had great customer service in every experience but I've had trouble with getting access to my ISA almost every time even though I have the right documentation, it takes a while.

The Coventry Building Society is the only savings account provider I have found that consistently pays good rates of interest, has never tried to move my money into low interest accounts and has never offered me poorer rates than new investors. If only all financial institutions showed such loyalty to long term customers.

No-brainer!

I've had accounts with the Coventry for many years and have never seen a reason to leave. Their interest rates are generally a little above that of their competitors (vital in these times of such pitiful returns) and they reward loyalty by keeping...

I've had accounts with the Coventry for many years and have never seen a reason to leave. Their interest rates are generally a little above that of their competitors (vital in these times of such pitiful returns) and they reward loyalty by keeping rates on existing accounts a little ahead of their newer equivalents.
Also the Coventry's website is a doddle, even for a technophobe like me!

Good service

I found it easy to set up my account, but it was difficult to initially access the online banking service. Interest rates are reasonably competitive, and the customer service has been good when I've needed to contact them.
