"This is a website where the response of the staff member demonstrated a "can do" mentality coupled with a pleasant, reliable and willing attitude - something you don't always get these days where "inflexible call centre scripts" are the norm. From this experience, Savings Champions deserve to do well." RM - 1st March 2014
"I cannot recommend this website and the service they provide highly enough. The customer service is amongst the best I have ever received. I recently sent an email over the weekend believing it would take at least a week before I got a reply (if i got one at all). First thing Monday morning I received a reply from Leanne, who sorted everything out and replied to my subsequent emails immediately. I was extremely impressed with the high level of efficiency and professionalism, which more often than not, is something of a rarity these days!
Savingschampion is an absolute must for all savers. A really unique, wonderful website, that's easy to use, simple to understand and packed with valuable, trustworthy advice. Best of all the rate tracker service is an excellent motivator for savers, eliminating the time-consuming hassle of searching for financial information and trying to keep on top of paperwork. It has made my life so much easier. I really don't know how I managed before! Keep up the good work! Thanks again!" JW - 5th February 2014
"Having just phoned you today [jan 09] for advice re: my cash ISA's I spoke to a lady named Chelsea...The advice and help given was really great, your service is superb.Thank you all very much..." Mr MP - 9th January 2014
"For many years I have relied on various sources, for financial guidance, notably the Telegraph, Which, Moneyfacts etc, until two years ago, I read about your start up in Paul Lewis’s column in the SAGA magazine ( yes I am of a certain age ). Having basked in the very topical, informative, simplicity of your site I am now a complete convert.
All my next finance moves are based on your very current best buys, and current is probably the biggest bonus, for I can always rely on the currency (pardon the pun) of your website.
My first web request for a call from you today, was answered by Phillip seemingly in seconds. He knew exactly what I was getting at in terms of the £85K safety net in relation to a group of providers, and he was basically not confident of my second question on Unit Trust providers, and was quite open seeking advice from a colleague. Hey presto he gave me the web address and telephone number of the FSCS, to seek guidance.
Extremely courteous and informative, and so good to see that some organisations still value traditional customer values." Mr BL - 28th November 2013
"I stumbled across Savings Champion recently on the internet and have found it very handy to help monitor my elderly parents respective savings accounts. I had found it practically impossible to check rates, particularly on older accounts that are no longer available to new customers.
I then had some questions I needed answering regarding setting up multiple accounts to keep my own savings accounts separate from my parents, and “Leanne” from customer services answered all my questions very promptly and very thoroughly. I would definitely recommend them as their customer service is very good." Mr JA - 11th November 2013
"Savingschampion is great! The website is clear and simple, the response to any query is quick and friendly, and the reminder service is just what any saver needs. I'm recommending it to all my friends." Mrs AH - 6th August 2013
"I find the current necessity to constantly monitor savings rates to ensure that you are getting a reasonable deal (not necessarily the best one even) a real time bandit when I want to concentrate on growing my business. Savings champion is proving a real benefit both by saving me time and effort but also in giving me confidence that I am both getting good rates and will continue to find out if anything changes in the future. Just today I have introduced my wife to the service who has also been able to significantly improve on the rates she has been getting. I was quite stunned to find out that not only was the website really helpful, but that you also got a personal service in response to any queries" MR MD - 5th August 2013
"This was a fantastic alert. I spent a long time at the weekend checking which accounts to move to when my current decent rates are trashed in a few weeks time. I'd decided on the Aldermore account. Now I can jump and nab it just in time! Many thanks again" Mr MH - 24 May 2013
"The service provided by the savingschampion team has proved to be a great benefit to me when checking the interest rates on several savings accounts. Previously I found it practically impossible to check rates particularily on accounts no longer available to new customers. One savings provider had several pages of interest rates and very similar named products. As I am retired I can afford to spend quite a bit of time checking that my money is in the best savings accounts but even so I still find it very difficult to do and often get it wrong.
The savingschampion team have taken all the hassle out of managing my money and their monitoring of my accounts makes sure that my money is earning the best savings rates. One thing I particularly like is that the team can be contacted by email or free phone to answer any queries.
This service is a must for anyone with savings." Mr AW - 22 May 2013
"I was delighted to find the Savings Champion website. It was clear and straight-forward to use and when I sought advice on a specific point the response was helpful and provided me with the information I needed. I shall certainly continue to use the site and will recommend it to others." Mr DB, Kent - 4 March 2013
"I have no hesitation in recommending your service and have already recommended it to a number of friends. I find the site helpful in its unbiased approach to the savings market. I also appreciate the use of the warning system when fixed term savings are approaching their maturity date." Mr HH, London - 20 February 2013
"I'm a big fan of your website and it's a great incentive to save effectively by seeing your savings grow!" Mr TM, Somerset - 14 February 2013
"Savings Champion were very quick to answer a query I had about a specific savings product, and seem very willing to adapt their Rate Tracker to suit the needs of people using the site, making it even more intuitive to use. It is an excellent tool for savers!" Andrea, West Midlands - 12 February 2013
"In an era of making the customer wait, and seemingly inevitable errors by building societies, banks and utility companies; it is a rare pleasure to find that Savings Champion inevitably exceeds my expectations with rapid, polite and helpful advice. The recent addition of current interest rates to "my portfolio" makes it even easier to manage my mother's complex set of accounts. Long may they prosper." Mr MB, Somerset - 4 February 2013
"For individuals looking to stay in control of their own money through traditional savings....the free service from Savings Champion takes the worry out of constant rate scanning and is a friendly fabulous service. I salute and recommend them." David, Yorkshire - 29 January 2013
"Thank you for your Rate Alert about the impending withdrawal of the First Direct Regular Savings Account. This was a great big dig in my ribs as I have been meaning to do this for a while but have never really got round to it. However, thanks to your polite elbow, I have now opened a regular saver account. In comparison with other savings accounts, this will be a good deal returning about 4% over the year on the total outlay." Paul, London - 28 January 2013
"Without Savings Champion's brilliant Rate Tracker service, I wouldn't have found out that the Post Office has knocked 0.5% off the interest rate on my savings. Keep up the good work!" Graham, Birmingham - 23 January 2013
“Many thanks again for being so helpful. I have passed your website to one or two of my friends and I shall certainly continue to recommend yourselves.” Ruth, Yorkshire - 16 January 2013

"Thank you for the reminder about my ISA maturing date. I find your service excellent; it saves me hours searching the Internet for better rates. They are a joke at the moment, every time I turn my computer on another bank or building society has dropped its rates." Philip, Lancashire - 4 December 2012
'What a great website. Easy to use, full of information and run by friendly, helpful people. Everyone should sign up!' Sue, Leicester - 29 November 2012

"SavingsChampion gave me invaluable help in identifying savings accounts where there was a good interest rate, with reasonable withdrawal conditions, and government protection. Their guidance was friendly, quick and professional - couldn't ask for better." DM, 14 May 2012
"I'd just like to say how useful your website is... and to thank you all for such a clear comparative display of cash savings best choices. Really helpful: it gives direct links to each provider's website, so one can follow up an option with immediate easy access to the details." TL, 9 May 2012
'Savings Champion performs a long overdue service and I hope it puts our banks on high alert. If our banks were more honest there would probably be no need for Savings Champion. Sadly, I think they'll be needed for some years to come.' MD, 27 April 2012
"Thank you for all the great information you have given to me. I will be recommending your facility to at least 2 friends who I believe could benefit. Once again, thank you for your help." SP, 19 April 2012
"I just wanted to say thank you for the heads up on the Nationwide. My myonline save plus account bonus finished yesterday so I had opted to open a new myonline save account paying 3.02%. When I got the email below I was a bit annoyed as this would have meant a better interest rate of 3.17%. So I spoke to Nationwide and the solution was simple. Close the account that had opened yesterday using the free withdrawal to close the account and open one of the new accounts paying 3.17%. Worth the effort to get a few more pounds interest!" DL, 2 April 2012
"Keep up the good work, it is a great product." JC, 26 March 2012
"I am signed up for your tracker service and think you are doing a great job. Keep up the good work." RS, 23 March 2012
"Thanks. Very helpful. I'm impressed." MR, 14 March 2012
"As soon as I get time, I am going to enter [in Rate Tracker] all the various little savings pots we have at the moment. It’s ridiculous how complicated things get because you have to keep swapping to try and get the best rates." CW, 28 February 2012
"I'd like to thank you very much for the service you're offering. It's one of those rare websites where information doesn't seem to clutter the pages and is very helpful when making decisions on savings accounts. Definitely a website I would recommend to friends and colleagues." NA, 14 February 2012

"Thank you for your work on behalf of hard-pressed savers; keep up the good work!" AP, 21st December 2011
"I am a huge fan off using nudge theory (Nudge by Richard Thaler and Cass Sunstein.) to encourage change and your rate tracker is just the thing to remind people like me to take control of their savings and not let the banks carry on taking advantage of savers' inertia..... I wish you every success with the web site. I shall be using it frequently." AC, 16 December 2011
"Just like everyone else, I'm busy and so don't have time to frequently check out the interest rates on my accounts - despite the fact that everyone knows that the Banks/Building Societies rely on this fact to sneak the rates downwards over time! www.savingschampion.co.uk is exactly what I have been looking for .. they do the checking and let me know as soon as I can get a better deal!" DK, 15 December 2011
