Barclays, a DepositAccounts.com advertiser, is a UK-based multinational bank that maintains operations in retail and investment banking, as well as lending, credit cards, and wealth management. The financial holding company, of which its personal banking component is a subsidiary, is one of the largest in the world, with trillions of dollars in assets.

On its personal banking side, Barclays has limited deposit account offerings available in the United States. The bank offers both a high-yield savings account and Certificates of Deposit (CDs) through its online banking platform. Both accounts feature attractive interest rates, with the savings account interest rate being one of the highest available in the country. DepositAccounts.com reported that the savings account interest rate remained over 1% for over a year until the summer of 2013. Barclays savings accounts have no hidden fees or minimum balances to join and come with an easy to use online banking system from which account holders can transfer funds, deposit checks via scanner or mobile deposit, and make online payments. Its savings accounts also come with a debit card that customers may use to withdraw funds at any Bank of America ATM for a discounted fee.

Barclays CDs are also managed on Barclays’ online banking system and offer a guaranteed rate of return with no minimum balance to open and no monthly service fees. Barclays began allowing monthly interest disbursements on its CDs in May of 2013. Both of these accounts may be easily opened and managed online.

Barclays online banking business is headquartered in Wilmington, Delaware, which is also home to its Barclaycard (credit card) division. The bank’s wealth management group is based in New York City, and all of its operations in the United States are subsidiaries of Barclays Bank PLC, a Financial Holding Company headquartered in London, England. The retail bank has no branches in the United States and provides its services through its online banking platform.

Barclays has a long history dating back to 1690, when two bankers started trading as goldsmith bankers. In 1965, the bank branched out to the United States for the first time when it started Barclays Bank of California in San Francisco. Today, the bank maintains operations through affiliates in over 20 countries.

Barclay Is A Good Bank...

Posted by: |

Barclay is a good bank. Folks can feel secure banking with them. Today they just raised their savings interest rate in one generous swoop from 2.4% to 3%. They had remained at a stubborn 2.4% for way too long while many of the other banks on this forum were already at 3% or more and going even higher after the Nov 2 Fed meeting of the .75% rate hike. (Fed hike as was expected) If Barclay is going to be competitive, as they appear to want to be, I wish they would be a bit more proactive and keep up with their competition in a more timely fashion. (and before I had already transferred 95K out of my account 24hrs ago. lol) Clients can’t afford to sit around on large balances at 2.4% wondering what Barclay is thinking and planning on doing as the days tick by into the new month. While I do NOT seek the ultra-high max 3.5% rates found at some of the smaller name banks with poor customer service and scary feedback, I also don’t want to be sitting around indefinitely on a stubborn low 2.4% rate at the better banks either. All in all, I still overall rate Barclay here as a 5 star bank with which importantly you can bank without worries.

Rates Too Low

Posted by: |

Fed fund rate goes up .5 percent Barclay rate increased .05 there is an extra zero in this. Banks too spoiled for loose Fed Fund supply. Match the rates

Shows As 0.90% APY But Its Not

I have a savings accounts with Barclays and I was just monitoring how they calculate interest. I tried to check the calculation and to my surprise it was not matching. When I tried in all the possible ways of calculating interest and it didn't match to what I was getting, I called customer care. I asked them to help me understand the calculation and I was told that the calculation is all correct because the rep was sitting somewhere is far east and had a pre-fed calculator to check the math. I requested to explain me the formula but he failed. Then I asked for a manager and when i spoke to the manager, I came to know that the 0.90% APY is actually not 0.90% APY its 0.888896% APY and that my calculation on the amount is right. They have rounded it to display 0.90% APY.

THIS IS REALLY SHOCKING.

Weird Online Experience For Opening CD

Posted by: |

Tried to open a CD online... went through the whole process then at the end it prompted me through 3 questions (presumably to confirm my identity) related to my address' location to nearby streets, a list of people I know, and what town was a certain address located at. The answers in two of the three questions had no connection to me in any way. The next page tells me that I need to send copies of a bunch of documents (SS card, driver's license, etc.) to some email address so that they can confirm my identity. I called their Customer Service number to see if there was any other way for them to confirm my identity and they told me no. Over the years I've opened quite a few accounts at major financial institutions through online portals and never had this happen. Not sure if this was some weird one-off glitch on their end, but decided to skip the hassle.
