The Consumer Money Survey has clearly caught the imagination of the public with thousands of votes already cast.

With competition being so fierce it is up to you to tell us how you feel about the financial products that are important to you.

Perhaps you have received exemplary service from your house insurance provider or felt forced to take your savings business elsewhere because you thought your provider wasn't up to scratch.

However you feel we want to hear from you.

There are three sections: family finance, household finance and personal finance.

You can take the survey here.

"Recent years have proved to be tough for the personal finance industry but there are still a number of examples of combining great products with outstanding service levels to great effect," said Sylvia Wacott, publishing director at Moneyfacts Group.

"It is only right that this is showcased, especially given how quickly their failings are highlighted."

If you haven't yet registered your vote, don't worry as the survey doesn't close until 26 November 2010.
