Capital One 360 is an online banking subsidiary of the Capital One Financial Corporation, a financial holding company publicly traded on the New York Stock Exchange (Symbol: COF). The web-only bank officially took over ING Direct in 2012 and offers an array of depository banking and lending products, in addition to its brokerage platform. The Capital One 360 branding was first introduced at the end of 2012.

In its depository banking repertoire, the direct bank has personal checking, savings, and Certificate of Deposit (CD) accounts, as well as business savings and CD accounts. On the personal side, Capital One 360 offers a fee free checking account that is part of an extensive ATM network and comes with a free MasterCard debit card. The teen checking account is basically the same account, but adds a joint owner. Both accounts are attractive because they earn interest and make the switch from brick and mortar bank checking to Internet checking very smooth with mobile deposits and widely accessible ATMs. The online savings account offers one of the top interest rates in the country and has no fees and an automatic savings plan option to encourage the process. CDs are offered in term lengths ranging from 6 to 60 months and come with fixed interest rates.

Capital One’s Sharebuilder provides a trading platform where customers can perform cheap stock trades or look up reports on various investments from independent analysts. On the business side, a savings account is available that offers up to 3 authorized signers who can function as account owners.

Capital One 360 online banking provides a secure and sophisticated platform for account owners to manage their deposit, loan, and business accounts with Capital One. The bank’s site is optimized for both desktop and mobile use, and enables users to complete account management items like money transfers, balance reviews, bill pay, ATM search, and transaction history viewing. Mobile apps are attractive and make it easy to bank while on the run from a smartphone or tablet device.

Capital One 360 is the product of Capital One Financial Corporation’s 2012 acquisition of ING Direct, which was created in 2000. Capital One’s business model focused on consumer lending before 2005, until it decided to branch out into the retail banking business. Its acquisition of ING Direct considerably helped those efforts, making it one of the biggest online banks in the country. Capital One 360 is currently headquartered in McLean, Virginia, and serves its customers exclusively through its online banking platform.

I Love the Auto-transfer Feature

I signed up for an online savings account to fund a yearly vacation. I initially signed up due to easy access and friendly online appearance. I set up a weekly auto transfer from my primary bank checking account. The auto save program has been better than the savings account connected to my bank, as I don't see the balance every time I check my balances. Since I see the account less often, I tend not to withdraw money as often. It really has been "out of sight, out of mind" money, and I have been pleased with the ease of deposits and access. When I gave needed money from the account, I simply transfer the funds directly to my primary bank checking account. I have never had an issue that required I call customer service, but I suspect they would be helpful and professional.

Fantastic online-only bank

I originally signed up with Capital One 360 back when it was owned by ING. They offer a savings rate that is exponentially higher than what you would receive from a traditional bank. Usually when I check savings rates, only Ally Bank's is higher. However, I stick with Capital One 360 because they have an excellent website interface. The also offer a mobile app that is very easy to use. It allows me to make transfers between bank accounts while I'm on the go and it only takes a few seconds. I receive email notifications for any activity made through my account, so I feel safer knowing that this would alert me to any fraudulent activity immediately. I also have several CDs with Capital One 360 and the process of opening them and maintaining them is so simple that it makes me want to create as many as possible. Overall I have had a great experience with Capital One 360 and would reccomend it to anyone.

Not Happy

Posted by: ALexx | Dec 30, 2016

Overall, I am not happy about my Capital One 360 bank anymore. When the bank was ING Direct I used to have a big interest rate. That was the only reason I moved my savings there. Now, since the rates are low, there are almost no benefits of keeping my money there. In fact, it's more of an inconvenience to move money in and out of this bank. It takes days to transfer to my local branch, and even when I have to take cash out, I have to move it to another internal Capital one account to get my money. Some transactions don't even complete, so I end up paying penalties.

Terrible Customer Service

I hane had an account eith Capitalone 360 for approaching 10 years. I have had no issues until recently when my accounts were frozen. I received a call from Cap360 with a callback number. I called back five times. I either cannot get through, get transferred then dropped, get transferred and wait but no one ever answers. All I know is that both my accounts are frozen and I cannot speak to anyone to find out the problem and how to resolve it. It is a good bank as long as you do not have any issues. Once you have an issue, pray you do not need your money any time soon. I will try one more time by visiting a cafe. If that does not work, I am going to the regulators.

Rate Decrease For 12 Month CD

thowellIII   |  
Just in time for all the renewals of the CDs opened about a year ago when the rate spiked to 1.30, the 12 month rate has dipped to a non-competitive 0.90% APY. For those who took advantage of the rate one year ago, be sure to give maturity instructions other than automatically roll over.
