I'm looking to start a savings account. Just for money, I don't plan on spending any of it, and I keep noticing from a certian bank around here advertising for their online baking, specifically a savings account, the "e-savings account" it has a nice interest rate comparativly so I was wondering for peoples experiences with online banking. Thanks
I've spent the last 20 minutes reading over everything on the site, searching for all the fine print, it seems the only catch is to get the account free is to open or have a checking account, I've read about their basic checking account and it looks good and I've been meaning to get a new checking account as the one I have sucks alot.

Ok. Go for it. Watch out for those emails that try to nick your passwords though, by tricking you into going to a website that looks like your bank.Another quality post brought to you by Mr Mist, god of Moo.

I have an e-savings account, as well as being able to access my current account online. Quite good for checking your statement / balance anytime.Be happy, accept those you care for, and live your life in a manner true to yourself, those you care for, and the values you hold dear to your heart.

Internet banking is really good - all my accounts are online and its easy to transfer money etc. Just delete any emails that you get sent asking you to verify your account details as it will be a hoax.I read about the afterlife, but I never really lived...

Going slightly OT, but if a bank was to tell you something, wouldn't they always send you a letter and not email?

Thanks all, since there seems to be no horror stories, I think I'll look more closely into it and stop in the actual bank sometime this week. Thanks

I use internet banking and find it alot easier than going to the bank.. Barclays and their abysmal service..
If you're a retard like me though and keep typing in your passcode wrong and end up getting it disabled.. three times.. it can get frustrating.If you've lost your faith in love and music, oh the end won't be too long..
The tea and coffee making facilities left alot to be desired..

Though, since I'm asking questions, say I had this online account and I wanted to take money out of it, or even put it in? How does that work? Do you just transfer to/from another account (like say the checking account)?

If you want to take money out (not transfer) you have to withdraw it from a cash machine. However, if you want to give it to someone else who has a bank account, you can just transfer it over...

I've been with them 4 years now, and have no complaints at all about internet banking. I think it's a 5000% improvement on having to haul ass down to the branch all the time.
