The winner of the £1,000 prize given to one of the voters in the Consumer Moneyfacts Survey has spoken of her joy.
Janet Nicolson was one of thousands of people who had their say on the financial products they use every day, with the winners recognised at a ceremony in London last night.
And she says she was 'overjoyed' at the news she had been plucked from the long list of consumers who voted in the survey.
"When I took the call from Ann to tell me I had won the £1,000 prize I couldn't believe it," she said.
"But then I started to remember filling in the survey back in November and realised it could be true – I was overjoyed when I got the email confirming I'd won."
The Consumer Moneyfacts Survey gives people a chance to have their say on the financial products that are important to them, from current accounts to pet insurance and everything else in between.
"I think it is important for consumers to have their say on financial companies they use as large numbers of people who express an opinion favourable or not can have an effect on the way large companies operate," commented Ms Nicolson.
The lucky winner says she voted in the Best Credit Card Provider category and also rated her current account provider.
"I also voted in the Best ISA Provider category and Best Savings Provider category and I like to keep an eye on the best deals so I can get a good interest rate," she added.
With the £1,000 safely banked, Ms Nicolson is now thinking about jetting off for a city break.
"Firstly, I'm going to take my family out for a meal and a big celebration," she says.
"But then I'm thinking about going to visit Prague; it's a place I've always wanted to visit."
