Bask Bank is an online-only division of Dallas-based Texas Capital Bank. It offers interest savings and mileage savings accounts and a CD with four terms. The bank is also promoting an interest-earning checking account that's coming soon.

The Bask Interest Savings Account has no monthly fees and no minimum deposit or balance requirements. The account’s annual percentage yield (APY) is 5.10% as of May 20, 2024.

You’ll need to open an interest savings account before you can set up a Bask Mileage Savings Account. You can then earn 2.5 American Airlines AAdvantage® miles for every dollar saved annually with your mileage savings account. The account has no monthly fees and no minimum deposit or balance requirements.

CDs require a minimum deposit of $1,000, and you can choose from terms of six, 12, 18 or 24 months. APYs as of May 20, 2024, are 4.50% for the 18- and 24-month CDs, 5.15% for the 6-month CD, and 5.20% for the 12-month CD.

The bank offers customer support by phone or online only. Call 833-260-4320 from 7 a.m. to 7 p.m. Central time Monday through Friday and from 9 a.m. to 4 p.m. CT on Saturday. You can also send a secure message through your online account or complete an online form and get a response from a customer support agent.

AWESOME BANK!

Posted by: |

Bask Bank is fabulous! I have a Bask Interest Savings account and I earn 5.10% APY. This gives me about $240 per month in interest alone. When I purchased a new car in December my down payment was transferred in one day. I am very happy with my Bask Bank experience. I love being able to handle my banking needs online.

GREAT CUSTOMER SERVICE!!!

I had the very fortunate occasion to experience GREAT customer service earlier this afternoon by a gentleman by the name of Eric in their customer support center. He was professional, polite, knowledgeable, and, above all, helpful. And he spoke English! Thank-you to Bask Bank!

I had difficulty in opening an account with Bask Bank, and called customer service for assistance. Eric answered the call, walked me through and resolved the issue, and was able to get my application submitted. Easy Peasy!

I appreciate that this is but one data point, and that my experience may differ in the future, namely after I become a Bask Bank customer. Yet, for right now, I couldn't be more pleased!

Good Savings Account

Posted by: |

The application process was a breeze, not sure what others are saying here. The transfer time is slow and I think it's because of security reasons as this bank is very strict on that, this is a good thing, however it can be bad as it's so strict on security that it can lock out it's own owners of the account.

The CD rates are competitive, though I wish it had more terms. No checking nor money market account here.

Texas Capital Bank, deposits are growing so that is a good trend.

Application For New Account Denied

Posted by: |

I tried to open the Bask savings account and my application was denied. They give you a long list of possible reasons why they can't open your account, so you don't know what steps (if any) you could take to resolve the problem. It's frustrating to enter your personal information that's needed to open the account and then be refused.

I submitted an email contact request on their website and so far no reply*. I was able to open accounts recently with other online banks so I'm not going to waste anymore time with this bank.

*UPDATE 6/14/2024:
"Hello,

Thank you for your interest in applying for a Bask Bank® Account. To speak with a Bask Bank® representative, and review your application, please contact Customer Support at 833.260.4320.

You may also submit a new application at BaskBank.com.

Thank you,

Bask Bank"

COMMENT:
If this is the response, then why do you offer the email contact form in the first place? You just wasted more of my time and now you want me to call you...

COMMENT:
- Your third-party verification services are unreliable (I've already been verified and approved by 3 online banks this year and 3 online banks in prior years)
- I gave you the same information as the other banks (except for the drivers license not required by some banks)
- I typed carefully and checked for typos before I clicked continue
- Only one application was submitted
- My application was submitted from a state in the continental U.S.
- No documents were submitted
