CapitalOne360 alternatives?
September 15, 2017 12:09 PM   Subscribe

Ever since ING turned in to CapitalOne360 I have been less and less pleased with it. I'm looking for a new online savings account, one that's not with my regular bank (PNC) so it's harder to get at the money. No minimum deposit or account balance.

Best answer: Yeah; thirding Ally. I was in a nearly identical situation (not happy with CapitalOne360 after they took over ING) and went with Ally. I've been completely happy with them.

Best answer: Nthing Ally. Been with them since 2007. Not a single complaint, and plenty to like. It's also at 1.2%

Best answer: The money market funds at CapitalOne360 are also at 1.20%. I just logged in to check out if there was a minimum amount for that rate or something, but holy crap has the website become awful. So... seconding Ally, I guess?

I had a great experience at Barclays too.

I use American Express Personal Savings for holding money and moving it around, and have no complaints. They currently pay 1.15%, no fees for standard stuff, decent web site.
