I have been banking with halifax bank now for over three years and decided to opt for the online service they offer free of charge.
It didnt take long to sign up and was very simple process to complete in order to set this up, its a great way of accesssing my direct debits and payments that go in and out of my acount.
Im currently on benifets and have money go into my account on a regular basis and was getttin a bit tired of having to kep track of my direct debits.
This meant i had to constantly travel to my local cash point to obtain mini statements and check what was going in and what was coming out of it.
My local cash point is about twenty minutes away and the bank itself is even further away.
Since joining the online service i can now check what goes i and out and how much is being taken out for direct debits and standing orders.
Its very simple to find your way around and can set up new direct debit and standing orders and even upgrade my account online also which saves going to the bank for an appointments.
There is also a page full of tips to get the best out of your account and special offers they advertise and a guide to gettin the best from your savings account.
i now can check my bank safely and easily online without having to leave my house i think its a great idea and would reccomend anyone who has this feature available to accept it with their bank.
