What is 360 Savings?
360 Savings has no fees, no minimums and no catches. Your money will earn much more than what it would in an average savings or money market account and all deposits are FDIC insured up to $250,000 per depositor.
What's the catch? There is none!
How do I access my money?
When you open your 360 Savings, we use the checking account information you provide for your initial deposit to automatically establish a link, which allows you to easily transfer funds between the two accounts. View Opens a new window a brief demo to learn more about links.
You can initiate a deposit or withdrawal between your accounts online or by phone one of the following ways:
Keep in mind, transactions generally take 2 business days to be completed.
If you have 360 Checking, you can transfer funds from your 360 Savings to your 360 Checking, which will be instantly available to make purchases with your debit card, to access cash at over 38,000 free Allpoint® ATMs or to pay bills online.
How do you calculate the interest on my account?
Interest on your savings account is accrued daily, compounded monthly and credited to your available balance at the end of each month.
When do deposits start accruing interest and how long are they on hold?
Interest starts accruing on your deposit starting the next business day after being processed.
All deposits into a 360 Savings and Kids Savings Account are subject to a 5 business day hold before they can be withdrawn. For security reasons, your initial deposit used to fund the account is on hold and unavailable for withdrawal for 10 business days.
Note: Your initial deposit must clear the initial 10 business day hold time before any additional deposits become available. For example, if you make your initial deposit on December 8th and make an additional deposit December 11th, both deposits will be on hold until the first deposit clears the initial 10 business day hold.
Electronic deposits that are automatically initiated outside the bank – like Direct Deposit or Social Security benefits – are available immediately. Transfers between Capital One 360 and Capital One Bank accounts are also available immediately. Both begin earning interest right away.
Deposits into 360 Checking are slightly different. Learn more.

Can my 360 Savings be a living trust?
Yes, you can register your account(s) in the name of a Revocable Living Trust. Before you do this, make sure the ownership on your Capital One 360 account(s) matches your trust.

Is there a limit to the number of withdrawals I can make from my 360 Savings?
Yes. Due to federal regulations, the 360 Savings has a limit of 6 withdrawals per calendar month. Withdrawals include transfers to your linked checking account or between other Capital One 360 accounts and external withdrawals. So, for example, if you transfer money from one 360 Savings to another 360 Savings, 360 Checking, etc., it still counts as 1 withdrawal. Keep in mind, the 6 withdrawal limit is per each 360 Savings account. If you exceed the limit multiple times, your account may be closed.
Is there a limit to the number of accounts I can have with Capital One 360?
Yes. There is a limit to how many accounts each Customer can have (don’t worry, we doubt you’ll even get close to it) with Capital One 360. You could be either a primary or joint account holder on a specific account and it would still count as one account. Here’s how it breaks down:
