Finder Savings Customer Satisfaction Awards 2023

Our new customer satisfaction award shows how savings providers have been rated by their customers.

Welcome to the Finder Savings Customer Satisfaction Awards 2023

Our customer satisfaction awards are decided by the only votes that really matter – yours. We asked customers of all the major UK savings providers to tell us about their experiences. Now we can reveal what they said.

The winners

The winners are based on both overall satisfaction scores (star ratings) and recommendation scores (the percentage of customers who said they’d recommend the brand to a friend).

And now, without further ado, here are the winners of Finder’s Savings Customer Satisfaction Awards for 2023 (*drum roll, please*).

Customer satisfaction ratings methodology

In December 2022, we ran a customer satisfaction survey on savings accounts. 2,224 people answered and told us how happy (or not) they were with their savings provider.

The survey asked respondents how satisfied they were with their savings account on a scale of 1 to 5 and whether they would recommend their savings providers to a friend or not. We turned the results into star ratings and shortlisted the top-performing brands for our awards. Where there was a draw in terms of star ratings, we used the recommendation score (the percentage of customers who said they would recommend the brand to a friend) as a tie-breaker.

Savings ratings

★★★★★ — Excellent
★★★★★ — Good
★★★★★ — Average
★★★★★ — Subpar
★★★★★ — Poor

The customer satisfaction score is based on a survey of 2,224 customers carried out in December 2022.

We show offers we can track - that's not every product on the market...yet. Unless we've said otherwise, products are in no particular order. The terms "best", "top", "cheap" (and variations of these) aren't ratings, though we always explain what's great about a product when we highlight it. This is subject to our terms of use. When you make major financial decisions, consider getting independent financial advice. Always consider your own circumstances when you compare products so you get what's right for you. Most of the data in Finder's comparison tables has the source: Moneyfacts Group PLC. In other cases, Finder has sourced data directly from providers.
