Review Nationwide's FlexAccount now

Great for families

Used them for over 50 years and now online they are great for moving funds between family members who all have Nationwide accounts.

I've used them for many years, and can't really say there's much of a difference between them and any other bank other than their security protocols for accessing your bank are much more inconvenient that others I've used (they still use a card reader for example). It's typical slow, frustrating, unhelpful banking that you use only when you must.

Safe and Secure Banking

I have banked with Nationwide for over 50 years and the staff have always been helpful. Security not only with my investments but personal data is second to none. Transactions are easy even worldwide.

Easy to use

I am more concerned about financial services being ethical and not investing in fossil fuel companies, to my surprise Nationwide ticks this box. So I was happy to keep using them as my bank.

Owned by it's members

ESG factors for Nationwide really show how much of an impact for the force of good Nationwide has. The only place where you can Bank and feel like you're in a community where everyone wants to make a difference for a better future.

Blocking a vulnerable 77 year old man from his money

Your not helping a clinically vulnerable 77 year old member of yours by blocking his account so he cannot use his debit card and making him come to the branch in person to take out cash even though he is at high Risk of Covid 19. SHAME ON YOU NATIONWIDE

Nationwide/LSG phone insurance

I would like to make a complaint about the service I have been getting from your insurance provider LSG.
I have been assaulted in the morning of Tuesday 20/10/2020 and the first thing I did was to call the line to open a claim for the stolen phone (as this is one of the products I have with my flexplus nationwide account).
The gentleman I spoke to on the phone started the claim for me in that same morning and email me a form and told me that I have to fill in that form and send back by post.
I did exactly what he asked me to do and today on 23/10/2020 I have received an email that asked to contact LSG and when I called they told me that I sent the wrong form and that I have to fill in a new form and send back again
Why was I sent the wrong form from LSG team in the first place? Now the weekend is around the corner and this will delay by claim process by a week!
What kind of service is this?!? And what sort of untrained people are working for LSG/Nationwide?!?
This is all very upsetting, the horrible experience I lived was bad enough and now I will not have phone for days because of someone else's error...
Disappointed would be an understatement on how I am feeling right now.

THE WORST BANK EVER!!!!!
They are so so bad, I completed a switch application from Natwest to Nationwide, two days later nationwide declined my application which i was fine with and took it on the chin.. not like i dont have an account with 3 other banks. Well nationwide STUPIDLY did not cancel the switching process like IDIOTS. 9/10/2020 a large sum of money went from my natwest account and my natwest account was shutdown meaning it had gone to Nationwide.. 6 days later nationwide are saying they sent it back when natwest are saying they have no funds from them recived so where has my money gone? into the AIR? Lydia from nationwide customer services is the only person who is trying to help me calling me everyday and emailing back and fourth for me. I have no problem going to court about this nationwide f***ed up majorly and even natwest are saying they have messed up majorly. If i dont recieve my funds back from nationwide after the stress they have put me through i will make them go through hell like i have the past week with all my money taken out of my natwrst account. such a bad bank sosososososososo bad no one dare try switch to this bank stay with your bank!

Every year they change my debit card despite the fact that it is valid for another 4 years. I have to notify all the companies that have my details and have to memorise the new card details. Why? Producing the cards costs money, posting it costs money my money and why? Impossible to get through to them even though they stopped the free number. Thanks a bunch.

Honestly the worst experience with any bank. Recently made redundant during covid and fallen under hard times which is imbarressing as it is nothing I could do about it. There customer service is honestly terrible. Not to mention how they have tried for two months in a row to close my account on the first of the month when rent is due etc. The way they speak to you on the phone makes you feel terrible and they offer little to no help when things are bad. I wish I never swapped from my previous bank its the worst mistake I have ever made.

Value for Money Bank Account

I love my Flexaccount. For a small monthly fee, I have access to phone insurance (which I have used 3 times), worldwide family travel cover, breakdown cover and preferential rates on my overdraft, loan and credit card.

I reported fraudulent activity in Jan 2020 where NBS were unable to retract funds from the third party. Upon negotiating with the third party to recoup funds I notified NBS of the defrauded funds crediting my account in the third week of March a week prior to the transaction so they are aware of the situation. A week later my account was frozen and the funds were taken out by NBS without any warning or consultation. I was alarmed as I kept NBS in the loop as to circumstances of the fraud and negotiations to have the funds returned.

2 months later they then decided to freeze my wife's and parents Nationwide accounts, again without warning or a phone call and have spent endless hours trying to get to the bottom of their negligence and unprofessional staff in their Fraud Support team. My nightmare lives on as I trying to get answers only to be asked to email the Account Review Team who have not responded in over 3 weeks.

To request information they have asked me to complete a SAR which they’re meant to legally respond within 28 days and have failed to do so and then asked to bank elsewhere whilst they hold my funds.

Please stay well clear from Nationwide and do not waste your time and effort with a reckless bank who have zero consideration for the well being of their customers in such horrific times. Shame on NBS!!
