I opened a savings and checking account with Capital One 360 over 5 years ago and have been using it as one of my main bank accounts ever since then. There were a few reasons I opened the account – they offer great interest rates compared to most competitors, they offer an easy to use online interface, and they were offering a sign up bonus at the time. It just so happens that Capital One 360 just brought back a $50 sign up bonus for their Electric Orange checking account.
$50 Bonus for New Capital One 360 Checking Account
This $50 sign up bonus is available to new customers who open a Capital One 360 checking account (simply click on one of the links on this page and it will take you directly to the page where you can take advantage of this offer). Once you open your account, you simply need to make 3 signature based purchases with your Electric Orange Card within the first 45 days after opening your account.
Capital One 360 has not yet announced when this offer will end, but previous offers haven’t lasted very long, so it’s better to act quickly if you want to take advantage of this.
Benefits of an Electric Orange Checking Account.
The Capital One 360 checking account is easy to use and will link directly to your Capital One 360 Savings account and ShareBuilder brokerage account if you have one. There are no required minimum deposits or fees to maintain your account. It also offers free bill pay, the ability to send friends and family members money via P2P payments at no cost, and you will have access to over 35,000 free ATMs. This is also an interest bearing account, which is something not all checking accounts offer.
