Capital One Bank Named One Of America's Best Banks By MONEYA® Magazine

Stocks in this article: COF

MCLEAN, Va., Nov. 7, 2013 /PRNewswire/ --  Capital One Bank has been named one of the "Best Midsize Banks" in MONEY ® magazine's annual "Best Banks in America" feature in the November issue. Capital One Bank's Spark Business Unlimited Checking also was recognized by MONEY for the "Best Business Checking for Established Businesses."

"This is great news. At Capital One Bank, our goal is to provide our customers with exceptional value and a great banking experience," said Jonathan Witter, President, Retail and Direct Banking at Capital One. "It takes a lot of hard work to build simplicity and excellence into the same banking experience; to be recognized as one of 'America's Best Banks' by MONEY is encouragement to us that we are doing things right."

Capital One Bank was one of four banks chosen as "Best Midsize Banks," with midsize banks being defined as those with fewer than 1,000 branches. Capital One Bank's free High Yield Checking account was recognized for having no out-of-network ATM fees and an APY "higher than any other brick-and-mortar surveyed." MONEY also highlighted the Smart Savings account and said Capital One Bank is a winner because "no other physical bank surveyed offered account terms as good as these."

Additionally, Capital One's new Spark Business Unlimited Checking was named the best checking account for established businesses, listing no caps on free transactions, free wire transfers and next day access to funds as key differentiators. Spark Business offers small businesses a range of innovative product solutions designed for the unique needs of small business owners, along with the support, value and control to help them succeed.

In 2012, Capital One Bank earned the distinction of being the best bank for standalone checking accounts in the MONEY "Best Banks in America" feature. It was chosen as a winner for its "checking accounts that come with impressive extras."
