I bank with Smile - what transactions are you finding are not up to date? I can't say I've ever noticed and they were also one of the first banks to move to fast transfers which is a big plus.
I also like the fact that if you do have to call them you speak to someone who knows what they're doing and can actually help!

Ours is NatWest and it seems fine. I'm having issues with my card reader though that they haven't been able to sort yet.

Natwest have somehow lost me a substantial amount of money in a transfer trom a UK account to an AU account.. and neither end of the world knows where it is!

For example, I had 2 debit card transactions on Thursday 8th April, and they have only appeared yesterday, with yesterday's date.

IF are now only offering savings accounts to new customers, so no new current accounts or mortgages. They changed things after the banking collapse and Halifax (their parent company) merging with Lloyds.

I have two accounts, one with Barclays, the other First Direct.
The Barclays I find a pain to log in to as you need your card and a stupic card reader to enter a PIN into. If I want to quickly check something, I can't. I have to wait till i go home to log in to it.
As for FD which is my main account, can't fault them. Online is as easy as pie. It works, you can link other things to it, like ISA's and saving accounts, if you call them (thanks saynoto0870.com) I have a landline number and the phone gets answered straight away to a UK call centre. Always happy to help even when I just want to query something.
I have both accounts linked to an ING account, again is easy to use.
For me FD is brilliant, and if I need cash, I go to HSBC anyway.

If it's web based they all should.

Has anyone used RBS online banking?
13th April 2010, 08:01 PM #26
Yep, it's the same as Natwests. If you can't open an account with Natwest, you won't be able to open 1 with RBS.

We use First Direct, and it's bang on. Then again I was Lloyds for 8 years, so anything is better!
Seriously though, the First Direct web banking is spot on.

another one for HSBC - used it since it first came out top notch
