No hidden bank fees, and the ability to earn up to 2.15% Annual Percentage Yield on your balance in a Protected Goals Account.
Every aspect of a Simple checking account is optimized for branchless, online banking, so you have access to each feature wherever you happen to be, whenever you happen to need them.
Without setting foot in a bank (or a bank stuffed into an ill-fitting mobile app), you have access to:
• Visa® Debit Card
• Photo Check Deposit
• FDIC-Insurance up to the legal limit
• Direct Deposit
• External Account Linking
• Instant transfers to other Simple customers
• Third-party payment services like Square, Venmo, and Paypal
• Block your card online if it’s been lost or stolen
Use Goals to stash away money: Save for the unexpected or automate saving for things you want. From a trip to Italy to a new bike. Open a separate Protected Goals Account to keep money tucked away from spending while earning up to 2.15% APY.
Set up your Expenses one time and going forward, we’ll do the boring work of creating the Expense for you. That way, when you pay your rent bill, your Expense is already saving up for next month’s bill. Yep, it’s our job now. (You can even split Expenses with a partner when using a Shared Account).
Spend spontaneously, without derailing your budget or bills (or doing the math on the spot…). We take your account balance, subtract your Expenses and Goals, and tell you exactly how much money you have left over to spend on whatever you want. (Buy the shoes!)
Earn interest with whoever you’re interested in: Let your money earn up to 35x (1) the national average with a Shared Protected Goals Account. And when it comes to shared bills, two paychecks are better than one! Open a Simple Shared account and tackle them together.
(1) Check it out for yourself (based on the September 30, 2019 National Rate): www.fdic.gov/regulations/resources/rates/
Rates are effective as of October 1, 2019, are variable, and subject to change after the account is opened. Accounts subject to approval. For your Protected Goals Account, balances between $0.01-$9,999.99 earn 2.02% APY and balances $10,000 and above earn 2.15% APY.
