Moneywise Consumer Opinion Survey 2012
While second place within Europe is impressive, at Moneywise we don’t believe coming fifth place globally is anything to shout about. Therefore, we are asking you to have your say about the customer service you receive from the financial companies you use.
We would like to know which companies you trust to provide you with good service and we would like to invite you to take part in our survey.
In return, we are offering a £1,000 cash prize, as well as five £50 vouchers to spend at your favourite retailers as an added incentive. The first 10,000 people to fill out the survey will also receive a free copy of Moneywise magazine. So make sure to leave your details at the end of the survey to be entered into the prize draw.
