Opened a help to buy ISA 5 years ago, I am buying a house now. Went to close it to find that is must be done in branch, ok fine. However ALL branches including major city centre ones ONLY open 0930 till 1400. As I work mon-fri, like most people, I can’t do this. Called customer service to be told basically “tough”. Was told I could write a letter to the closing team, you read that correctly write a letter, no phones, no email. The closing team don’t have phones or computers apparently, but was advised they will probably just tell me “tough” too as it MUST be done in branch. I was also offered to have my complaint escalated to the complaints team, which could take 8 weeks which is great when your trying to buy a house and need the money straight away.
When I asked why not for example close branch’s on a Wednesday and open on a Saturday was told this was because of COVID 19???? Other banks are open on a Saturday, Barclays for example I said to be told yes but we have chosen not to do that so again “tough”.

I now have to take a day off work at the cost of £150 just to access MY money.

Quite possibly the worst banking service I have ever experienced, not willing to help in the slightest just kept saying it’s in the terms and conditions even though when I agreed to those terms and conditions the branch’s were open mon-sat 9am till 5pm but again just told basically “tough”

I will NEVER bank with Halifax again after this and I STRONGLY advise others to do the same.

My 5 Year ISA reached maturity recently and as I have done for the 20+years I have had an ISA with the Halifax I simply planned to start a new one with them but was amazed when A I saw the paltry interest rate they were paying on the accoun0.75 % plus only 2 year ISA . Needless to say I looked elsewhere and found a good deal at almost 3 X the interest rate at a fixed 5 year deal

I have had my ISA with Halifax for several years and I am very happy with the way in which I have benefitted from the options made available to me and the advantages of being a customer with several different accounts which can all be accessed and managed collectively to ensure that personal finances are well maintained, organized, and connected to enable the opportunity of achieving the maximum potential outcome.

Excellent bank, terrible adverts

I like the trustworthiness of this bank . However their tv adverts are cringeworthy and do not reflect a serious brand

Have had my ISA with Halifax for years, but have just moved transferred all my money. Halifax ISA and savings interest rate has been consistently low for the past few years, where some other providers offer considerably better rates. As there is no incentive for me to stay, they have lost me as a customer.

What's the point

The interest is so low that you may as well invest in lottery tickets.

Simple well run product

For what it is this is good, easy to use and access. However the whole saving thing gives no returns anywhere at the moment.
