Benefits of Banking With Capital One

Capital One offers other ways to save money via additional banking products and features. Those savings make the bank worth consideration. Here’s more.

Fee-Free Banking

Capital One 360 checking and savings accounts are mostly fee-free. The bank does not charge customers monthly maintenance fees or require minimum balances. Customers have access to more than 70,000 ATMs, where they can check balances and withdraw cash without paying a fee.

Avoiding monthly fees over a period of time can save you money. Bank of America charges as much as $25 per month for checking accounts. Chase’s most popular checking account charges $12. PNC charges $7 for its basic checking account. That adds up to as much as $300 per year you can save by banking with Capital One.

Competitive Rates

Saving money isn’t the only way to put extra cash in your pocket. Capital One offers competitive rates above the national average for specific products. For example, Capital One’s 360 Performance Savings account features a 0% APY — well above the national average of 0.06% — no matter what your balance is.

How To Open a Capital One Account

Signing up for a Capital One account is a fairly simple process. Here’s how to open an account:

1. Decide where you want to open your account.

Capital One offers customers three options for opening accounts. If you’re new to the bank, you can open an account online or in a branch or cafe. Current Capital One customers can open a new account through the mobile app.

2. Choose an account.

Capital One has checking and savings accounts for adults as well as teens and children. You also may choose a certificate of deposit.

3. Gather and provide the required information.

You’ll need to provide your name, contact information and Social Security number when opening the account either online or in a branch or cafe.

4. Fund the account.

Deposit to the new account within 60 days of opening. You can deposit a check through the mobile app or schedule a transfer from another account. You even have the option of scheduling recurring transfers into the account.

Is It Time To Switch to Capital One?

Capital One’s low fees can add up to big savings over time. You’ll also get better than average rates on interest-earning accounts, and that interest can really add up over time.

Earning Capital One bonuses is great, but it shouldn’t be the only reason you choose a bank. Ultimately, the bank should offer the products and services you need to meet your financial goals.
