Finder Savings Customer Satisfaction Awards 2024

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

Welcome to the Finder Savings Customer Satisfaction Awards 2024

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 2024 (*drum roll, please*).

Customer satisfaction scores methodology

In December 2023, we ran a customer satisfaction survey on savings accounts. 750 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 accounts on a scale from 1 to 5, and also whether they would recommend their savings provider to a friend or not. We turned the results into stars and shortlisted the top-performing brands for our awards. Where there was a draw in terms of satisfaction stars, we used the recommendation score (the percentage of customers who said they would recommend the brand to a friend) as a tie-breaker.

Savings scores

★★★★★ — Excellent

★★★★★ — Good

★★★★★ — Average

★★★★★ — Subpar

★★★★★ — Poor

The customer satisfaction score is based on a survey of 750 customers carried out in December 2023.
