    I have been with Heritage Bank for over 40 years. And have been so happy with their service that I have not found the need to find another. I had a home loan with them going back to 1972, when interest rates rose to %18 in the early eighty's and I suffered illness, so found it difficult to meet my payments, they were more than happy to give me help with that situation I was in. So a big shoutout to Heritage for helping me keep my home, I will be forever grateful...

    Like everyone else I think that Credit interest rates and Savings Interest rates should be reviewed by all Banks and Lending Institutions. So in this respect my Bank is no different than others. I have been with the Commonwealth Bank for many years. They have always treated me with respect and friendliness. They have always responded to any query or question I have put to them. I felt that as I had been a customer for years I may be entitled to a lower rate of interest on mine and my Husbands Credit Card. I was so pleased when they agreed to this. It showed that they did appreciate our custom. My advice to anyone thinking about changing banks is to ask what is the best they can do for you. Don't just accept what the general rate is. Commonwealth Bank may be right for you too.
