Mobile banking is one of the most convenient ways to bank today. You can deposit checks, transfer funds, and even pay bills all from your mobile device. And now, with digital-only banks, you can do all of your banking without ever having to step foot inside a brick-and-mortar bank. How can debit rewards add value?
Digital-only banks are financial institutions that operate entirely online. That means there are no physical branches or ATMs. Instead, all of your banking is done through a mobile app or website.
One of the biggest advantages of a digital-only bank is that it’s available 24/7. Whether you need to check your balance at 3 am or transfer funds on a Sunday afternoon, you can do it all from your mobile device. Plus, since there are no physical locations, digital-only banks often have lower fees than traditional banks.
