    First Direct for Customer service.

    Tesco Bank for Interest

    Lloyds Bank for freebies.

    Santander for cash back on direct debits.

    You cannot ask which is the better bank when they all offer different incentives.

    You asked the same question last year, again with a poll but minus other banks, not that you cant ask the same question but what did you not gleam from last years thread ?

    For me

    Halifax
    Lloyds
    TSB
    Tesco

    For benefits

    Lloyds for free cinema tickets and the jnterest.
    Halifax for the free 3 a month.

    Theres many other alternatives.

    Can people stop loaning money/being a guarator to family/friends, it rarely ends well and you lose out as your money is gone or you get shafted with being a guarantor.

    It's all down to the fact I've just entered a relationship with a famous musician, who sang the soundtrack to a previous 50 shades film

    I think if I had a "celebrity girlfriend", 7.2 million and no debts the last thing I'd want to be doing is setting up pointless 'which bank is best' polls on MSE.

    I might be thinking of starting my own bank though
