I currently have checking, savings, and CD's at Ally Bank, but need better interest rates, so came to Barclays Bank.

Setting up an online account will take you awhile. It will also test your patience, but once you get it down, you will be amazed at how good this bank has become. Since they currently do not offer checking accounts, I would strongly recommend opening your checking at Ally Bank on line, then establish a direct transfer of funds from Ally to Barclay (FREE) to deposit your savings as Barclays. They are #1 for interest rates at the present time in the US. Trust me, if there were better banks than Ally and Barclay, I wouldn't be with them. You can find all banking information online. I have an account with Bank of America and they are the worst of the worst, they will be closing their doors any day now and leaving the customers holding only the FDIC funds, they suck big time!

Pretty good so far.

Been with this bank for a year for their online savings. Has been pretty good so far, no hiccups or hassles. I like their Security features. Working in IT, it's important to have extremely good online security now. These hackers around the world are getting smarter and it looks like Barclays is staying on top of it, but there's always room for improvement no matter who you bank with. Overall I would give them 4.5 stars out of 5, so far. Transfers are easy thru ACH, and don't take forever, and set up process is relatively quick. No faxing in stuff, signatures, credit checks, stuff going thru the Mail(except the welcome kit etc..) Everything is online, secure, fast. Good Bank.

All Things Are Very Relative: A Comparison Of Two Banks

I've read some of the negative customer reviews of barclay's bank, where i just opened an online savings account. My experience, thus far at least, has been exceptionally good. It took mere minutes to fill out the online application and open the account. An account number was assigned instantly online. Test deposits to my funding bank account appeared the very next day and were verified immediately; the new account was funded concurrently. No hassles, no problems, no delays. I then added a link to another external account and promptly received an e-mail indicating that trial deposits were on the way. I expect to verify them tomorrow. My beneficiary designation also went without a hitch- no problems, no hassles, no delays. My account was fully operational within just two days. Now i want to put this into the context of my recent experience with everbank, which also bills itself as an "online" bank and offers a slightly higher introductory rate than barclays. For the latter reason, i had tried to open a savings account there earlier. Everything at everbank is a complete hassle. The application process itself is opaque and labyrinthine, required multiple e-mail exchanges, and could not be completed online. Rather the account number and "welcome packet" were snail-mailed to me and it took a full week to get the account number which was required for funding. But then came the straw that broke the proverbial camel's back: i was required to call in to everbank to obtain a special security code that would enable me to verify the test deposits to my funding account. At that point i had had enough. About 10 days had elapsed from the time i filled out the application. So i just told everbank, "forget it; i'm not funding the account because i am not entrusting my money to a bank whose procedures must have been developed in the dark ages-". I mean, multiple e-mails, snail-mail and then the need for bothersome phone calls? Not for me! Good-bye, everbank; hello braclays!
