Rates as of July 9, 2018.

Capital One is the latest of the large internet banks to raise their savings or money market rate to 1.75% APY. Several other large internet banks have already raised their savings account rates to 1.75% APY. These include Discover, Ally, American Express, Barclays and Synchrony. So Capital One is a little behind.

The 360 Money Market has no monthly service charge, no-minimum opening deposit, or minimum balance requirement. The account does not offer check writing or debit cards. An ATM card (a 360 Money Market card) is available, but only by request. It’s not automatically issued.

Capital One launched the 360 Money Market Account in March 2016 with a competitive 1.00% APY. That rate held until June 2017 when the rate began to rise as internet banks finally began to respond to the Fed rate hikes. In the past year, a total of 75 bps has been added in seven rate increases.

Many thanks to DA reader, Maecl, for his Forum post about Capital One's rate hike.

Capability to Add Beneficiary Designations Is Coming

UPDATE 7/12/18: Please refer to this post for the details of Capital One's new beneficiary policy.

The main issue with Capital One 360 accounts has been Capital One’s refusal to allow beneficiary designations (i.e. POD or ITF) to accounts. This issue existed at ING Direct long before ING Direct was acquired by Capital One. I have good news to report. I was told by a Capital One representative that this policy is changing as of today. Capital One will allow up to 10 beneficiaries per account. Initially, Capital One will provide a form that must be filled out. The representative wasn’t able to access the form, but he said the form should be available on Capital One’s website today. I’ll publish another blog post when I have the details.

360 Savings Account

Capital One’s 360 Savings Account has been lagging the competition for awhile now. Its rate continues to be 1.00% APY for all balances. The last rate hike was in December when the rate increased from 0.75% to 1.00% APY. Capital One appears to be focusing on keeping 360 Money Market competitive instead of the 360 Savings Account. Unlike the Money Market, the Savings Account has no rate tiers. All balances qualify for the top rate.

Since checks can’t be written from the 360 Money Market, I consider this to be more like a savings account. In terms of features, the only difference between the 360 Money Market and the 360 Savings Account is the balance tiers.

360 CDs

The 360 CD rates remained the same. The last rate hike occurred on June 22nd. For the most part, Capital One has been keeping its 360 CDs competitive. Most of the 360 CD rates fall in the mid range for internet bank CDs. Please see my last Capital One 360 CD review for more details on rates and features.

Availability

Headquartered in McLean, Virginia, Capital One describes itself as “a diversified bank that offers a broad array of financial products and services to consumers, small businesses and commercial clients.” Any U.S. citizen or lawful permanent resident, 18 years or older, with a U.S. physical address or a military address (APO or FPO) and a valid Social Security number, can open an account at Capital One.

Opening a 360 Money Market account can only be done online, and must be funded from a personal checking account.

According to the 360 Money Market Disclosure,

To get started, you’ll need to "link" your Money Market account to your personal (non-business) checking account at another U.S. chartered bank (this is known as your Linked Account).

If you already have an account with us at the time you open your 360 Money Market account, your existing Linked Account(s) will also be linked to your 360 Money Market account.

Will there be, or is there the ability to put your accounts into a trust?

I don't think so, that's why I do little business with them.

I spoke to Capital One today and the CSR confirmed that this option is still unavailable for new accounts.

However, she stated that this was a 'priority' and that the internal timeline calls for a YE implementation date. Of course we know what that means.... This is good to know and a move in the right direction, but I am just not patient enough to wait.

Customer service contacts were good in my Cap One 360 MM account; but I had already moved substantial $ out because they were slow to offer a 1.75% rate (period) when others did. I kept the account open, but for now I'm be keeping $ elsewhere. Will they continue to react slowly in the future? And when I did move to CIT, I did so receiving a 1.85 MM rate they can't match.

Yup. They lost me too. They took too long. Moved half to Amex HYSA and half to Vanguard prime MM.

Some online banks will accept a message via their online site to add beneficiary designations without having to fill out any form.

I begin to get more interested in Capital One 360 money market since they finally came out of the Ice Age and now allow POD beneficiary designations. Then I noticed to get the 1.75 rate, you have to maintain a $10K minimum; otherwise, it is a puney .85% rate. Well I have to say no thank you again Capital One. You finally got the POD right, but there are other savings and money market options that provide both POD designations, as high or higher rates, and no minimum required balance for the maximum rate.

Looks like Discover Bank allows PODs, and "ownership types including Trust, Custodial, Guardian, and Estates. To open one of these account types, please call us at 1-800-347-7000 and a Banking Specialist will assist you." And you can get 1.75% with no minimum.

My long experience with CapOne has finally ended...with a 2 cent check.

I long had a checking & savings from the ING days. Been trying to close the accounts for a long time but I could not by email or private message and everytime I called, I gave up after 5+ minutes on hold.

I went to file a BBB complaint and found an email address there. They closed my accounts and sent me a check even though I said they could keep it.

They did have a pretty neat overdraft leftover from the ING days but, I cannot keep the account open because they ****ed me over a fake credit card late fee way back when.
