The best banks for online accounts provide easy access, protection and extra benefits to their customers. Keep reading to learn which factors elevate an online savings account to the top of the list.
What To Look For In The Best Online Savings Account
If you are wondering which banks present the best options for your online savings account, a few factors can help you decide:
Fees. Service fees can diminish the interest earned on your savings. Many of the best banks provide a savings account option with no monthly maintenance fee. Be sure to inquire whether the bank charges any maintenance or service fees before you open your account.
ATM Access. The ability to access your money day or night, 365 days a year, is critical to many savers. The best savings accounts allow you to access your money at ATM locations nationwide, 24/7.
Protection. The best savings accounts offer protection for your deposit. Be sure to learn whether the bank offers accounts that are FDIC-insured up to $250,000 per depositor for each ownership category.
Extras. The best banks provide customer benefits such as flexible online banking, call center customer service, and a perks program.
Be sure to inquire how a bank handles these factors before you open your online savings account.
