Banking online makes keeping up with your accounts more convenient than ever. Your financial information is available 24/7/365 on your mobile device via our convenient mobile banking app or as close as the nearest browser on any computer. Here are what we believe to be the top seven reasons online banking is trending (and becoming the trendy thing to do).
Never a Doubt with 24/7 Account Access
Have you ever been relaxing on vacation then suddenly realized you forgot to pay your credit card bill? No need to panic. With 24/7 access to your accounts, you can pay bills from anywhere, even poolside. See if a check cleared, or skim through your transactions to make sure you weren’t double-charged for that jet ski rental.
Mobile Deposits, the Banking Selfie
We upload photos of everything in our lives these days... from carrot cake to corgis, but checks deserve a little love, too. Skip a trip to the bank or ATM and deposit checks using the camera on your phone and our mobile banking app. And even though you may not need to come to the bank to deposit your checks, you can still stop by and visit.
Transfer Money for Instant Gratification
Sometimes you need to transfer money, especially if you are the parent of a college student. The good news is, you can quickly and easily move money between accounts, which is helpful when tuition is due the next day (or someone is out of pizza money). Transfers typically go through within 24 hours. It’s also handy for big purchases and surprise expenses.
Go on Red Alert with Text & Email Notifications
Say yes to financial peace of mind when your life is hectic. Sign up for text and/or email alerts to notify you when your balance falls below a specific dollar amount, or when a bill comes due. You will amaze friends and family with your organizational prowess.
Freeze Your Account
Manically searching for your lost debit card? Put down those couch cushions and never fear. You can use the super-power of online banking to freeze your account until you find your card. Let it go (and don’t forget to check the refrigerator). You have the power to unfreeze, too.
Put Bills on Autopilot
Face it, you have more important things to do than sit at home writing checks and staring at the Roomba. Set up automatic payments and spend your time doing something that you’ll really enjoy. Plus, you’ll have rock-star credit for always paying your bills on time. Schedule monthly transfers from your checking to savings and soon you’ll be living a rock-star lifestyle, too.
Cut the Clutter with eStatements
With your records available 24/7/365, you can print statements on-demand without digging through paper files. Up to six months of eStatements are available online. Plus, several of the popular budgeting apps can be synced with your online banking information.
