Staying on Top of Your Finances with Online Banking

The internet has helped transform the way we do many things. We shop online, we communicate through email, and many of us do our banking online as well. If you’ve never heard of online banking or are leery of divulging this information over the internet, here are a few reasons why you might want to consider making the move over to your browser.

It’s Convenient: Have you ever tried to go inside a bank on a Friday afternoon? It’s chaos. Online banking allows to access your account anywhere you have a WIFI or 4G/3G connection. You can make transfers, pay your bills and even deposit a check by taking a simple picture with your phone. Whether you access your account on your browser or through the mobile app, you’ll be able to avoid the lines, traffic and operating hour limitations that come with brick and mortar banks. In addition, you won’t have to worry about conducting business on your account if you’re out of town, don’t have access to a car, etc.

It Can Help You Stay Organized: Rather than worrying about balancing your checkbook so you know how much you have in your account, online banking gives customers the opportunity to view their credits and debits in an itemized, intuitive format. You’ll know exactly what’s coming in and what still has left to come out, so you can avoid overdraft fees and other banking issues. In addition, online banking allows you set up payments for credit card, phone, student loan and mortgage bills, so you’ll never have to worry if you missed a payment ever again.

You’ll Save the Environment: Each month, you’re probably used to getting paper statements and bills in the mail. Just think of all that paper that is being wasted. Online banking allows customers to opt in for paperless statements and e bills, so you can avoid contributing to all of that waste. In addition to the green benefits, you’ll also avoid paying for postage, which should help save some money too.

If any of these benefits sound good to you, One United Bank offers free online banking for all of our customers. In addition to the benefits above, One United customers will have the opportunity to earn Purchase Rewards, track their spending, and transfer funds from their One United account to other banks. For more information or to get started, please open an account online today.
