Online Banking: Banking Your Way

Why bank online? Check out some of the benefits of online bank accounts.

Today it’s easier than ever to bank online. Most banks are improving online services and apps at a breakneck speed. Online banking provides the perfect combination of everything you love about your local branch with new technology available at your fingertips. Switching to online banking will also change the way you manage your finances. It gives you total control to personalize banking to your needs, saving you time and money.

Below are a few ways you can benefit from online banking, by taking your finances into your own hands…literally.

1. Convenient Access

9:00 a.m. to 5 p.m., Monday through Friday, no longer defines when you can and can’t manage your account. Online banking is available around the clock, making it easy and efficient to manage your money online or through a mobile app. With Discover’s mobile app, you can conveniently deposit checks, pay your bills, transfer money, and check your balance.

2. 24/7 Customer Service

Online banking doesn’t mean you lose access to personal assistance. You can call, chat online, send an email, or post a question on the bank’s social media sites. You have more ways to talk to people when you need them-without leaving your house.

3. Peace of Mind

Security is a top feature in online banking. Banks use industry-leading practices to guard your personal information so you can feel safe every time you go online or on your mobile device. When you bank online, you can track your account activity at your convenience and be the first to discover any suspicious activity. Additionally, most banks make sure your money is FDIC-insured up to the maximum allowed by law.

4. Better Rates

Most online banks are able to offer higher rates because their overhead expenses are much lower, so they can pass those savings on to you.

5. Environmental Benefits

Banking online also helps reduce your carbon footprint. You can manage your account online by signing up for paperless statements, transferring money, and paying bills. Also, fewer bank visits means you spend less time on the road, consume less gas and help protect the environment.

Environmental Benefits

While these are only five reasons to bank online, the benefits of online banking are enormous. Online banking is changing the way people handle their money. It makes managing money easy and convenient and gives you the ability to take complete control of your financial situation. So get started today and learn more about how online banking can work for you.
