SAVINGS CHAMPION ANNUAL AWARDS

2018 Winners Announced

About our awards

We’re excited to launch the 2018 Savings Champion Awards – now in its fifth year

Our awards acknowledge excellence in a wide range of savings categories, recognising those Banks and Building Societies that have consistently offered best buy rates, provided excellent customer service and promoted competition in the savings market over the last 12 months.

What makes our awards different?

It’s been another challenging year for savers, so we’re pleased to celebrate those providers keeping competition alive and pushing interest rates back in the right direction. 

Importantly, our awards not only recognise those Banks and Building Societies that offer consistently good rates for new savers, but also those providers that support their existing savers and offer high levels of customer service as well.

SavingsChampion.co.uk is one of the few places savers can go to for truly independent, whole of market savings advice. So, our wealth of knowledge, experience and unrivalled research - combined with our impartiality, is what makes our awards different and our opinion trusted.

How we judge

Our judging process is independent, comprehensive and detailed and involves weekly reviews of the savings market for each category throughout the year. We then select only those providers who offered some of the best rates on the market for a sustained period during the last year to go through to the next stage.

Not only do we look at those providers who offer competitive products to new savers but also those providers that are supporting their existing customers as well. Additionally, we take into account feedback from our customers and our concierge team who are all using these products.

For providers, we want winning an award to be a powerful accolade and credible marketing tool, while for savers we want our award logos to be a clear way to identify the best accounts and providers in the savings market.

If you’re interested in finding out more about our awards please call us on 0800 011 9705.
