Fantastic experience!! Account open [in] less than 30 minutes. Very friendly staff. Easy to reach. Probably one of the quickest services I have received in the UK. Thank you for the support.
Card arrived this morning I had a few queries while setting up through the day with all of my direct debits and bills but the 2 people I spoke to on two different occasions were more than helpful.

Great customer service and this will now be my main account to hold my money.
Good experience. I recently opened an account with CardOneMoney and so far I’m impressed. Good, efficient and fast assistance from the customer service. Thank you Megan!!
