What Are The Chances Of Santander Going Bust? in House prices and the economy Posted November 25, 2010 Well I'm in the process of moving money out of A+L for the reasons listed above (rubbish service, poor IRs), but I'm moving the money into another Santander savings account., but a major concern is that you can only move 10k a day and when I move the money, it's not actually appearing to move?? I can only presume it takes a few days as I moved £1 to make sure I'd put the bank details in correctly and the dates on the transfer are 3-5 days after I moved it?? Anyway, the whole Santander thing does concern me, I posted a thread on the very same topic about 6 months ago. If Nationwide are so safe, why are they offering a savings account at 2.9%, do we think they're safe? I recently moved some money out of A&L in tranches. Appeared in my personal account 'virtually' the next day. Funds actually transferred on the 4th day (I think, might have been 3rd day). Never had any problems with A&L service myself.
