When did you last go into a bank branch?MoneySaving Poll Results

Souk
Barclays has just announced more bank closures. These days, many people access banking services online, via an app or by phone. So is the bank branch a dying need?

How often do you typically use a branch Ė other than just to use an ATM/machine in there - for PERSONAL (non-business) banking?

We try to use technology to limit voting to one per person. Occasionally, this may erroneously block a few people's votes (eg, from shared offices). Apologies for that.
