Review Santander's 123 Current Account now

Never a problem with Santander over many years

Online banking is fine. If a problem, staff resolve over the phone. Though I rarely have a problem as such, more a query.

Does the Job

Does what’s required, but customer service can be a nightmare to reach.

Awful bank, terrible service

The world’s worst bank is at it again, attacking graduate overdrafts during a deadly pandemic and global recession. Their app is awful, their stores are dirty and ugly, and their staff are untrained or incompetent - and I don’t know which is worse.

good for people who manage money well

This is a great account if you are into getting the most out of your account or have a good income and money to spare.

This is one of the worst banks in the world. Their customer support has no interest and knowledge in managing customers and the phone calls repeatedly hanging, so get ready to wait a
very long time. Even if you do get a hang of them, they would lie to you, so you cannot believe anything they say. They'll tell you, here is a person who will solve your problem and this person would just promise to call you later, but wouldn't. Moreover, as other people wrote here, they apply many obscure charges to your account even if you want to close it. I have never seen anything like that. I am sorry
that I did not read these reviews before I opened the account, but hopefully, this review will help other people.

Doesn’t even deserve one star. This service is absolutely appalling the team is pathetic they have the working capacity of a single man you’d think the security team consists of one guy working half hour a day as the amount of time it takes to get correspondence is ridiculous my account got blocked for no apparent reason and I have been left with no money to access for travel to my place of education I am 18 years old what could have possibly caused my bank to flag up? Im a student currently unable to live and struggling all because of this selfish disgusting team of people with the worst possible approach to such a situation it is going on a week now since my account was blocked, absolutely disgusting and I’m almost certain I won’t receive any form of compensation at the end of all this from the selfish horrible company. Don’t go with Santander unless you want the p*as pure taken out of you.

Both my credit card and debit card declined for no apparent reason yesterday in Sainsburys so trolley full of shopping had to be abandoned! Plus I was on way home from work with not enough petrol and couldn't fill up so had to leave car there and get picked up by my fiance'. Had loads of credit in my CC and over £15k in my debit card. Called when I got home and their automated system refused to accept my call unless I had lost my card or it was stolen. Called this morning and waited over an hour to get through to speak to a customer advisor who said it was sainsbury's terminal for the debit card decline and their fault for the CC glitch. NO aplology whatsover and no reimbursement for trouble and inconvience, loss of time and effort. In fact the customer advisor was quite short with me when in fact there should have been an apologise somewhere there!? I am now taking my business elsewhere...absolutely disgraceful service to a premier customer!

We have had more problems with Santander conducting in a non-professional way. If you want to be shocked type into the Internet "Santander fines".... Santander have been fined on many occasions (2014/2018/2019) by the FCA these fines amount to well over £100 million pounds. As such I leave it to your imagination whether you consider this bank acts in a compliant way and has respect for their customers as the FCA who regulate them obviously consider them non compliant, hence their numerous fines (of which we as customers must have to pay for one way or another/loss of interest etc). By all of my experience they do not appear to improve at all. Question begs do you want to give them your business?

Easy transfers

It's so easy to set up standing orders or make one off payments direct from this account, my family and I lend and repay each other money all the time this way.
