The Fine Print
- Open a 360 Performance Savings account between 12:00 a.m. ET on January 13, 2020 and 11:59 p.m. ET on March 31, 2020. When you open your account, enter your promotional code—NEW500. If you have or had an open savings and/or money market account, excluding CDs, as a primary or secondary holder with Capital One on or after January 1, 2016, you’re ineligible for the bonus. This account is subject to approval.
- Deposit a total of $10,000-$50,000 or more of new money from an external bank (transfers between Capital One accounts will not qualify) within the first 10 days of account opening (Initial Funding Period). You will earn a bonus once you’ve maintained a daily balance of $10,000 or more for 90 days following the Initial Funding Period. Your bonus will be calculated as follows: an account with a daily balance between $10,000-$19,999.99 will earn $100; $20,000-$29,999.99 will earn $200; $30,000-$39,999.99 will earn $300, $40,000-$49,999.99 will earn $400; balances of $50,000 or more will earn $500. If at any time during the 90 days following the Initial Funding Period your daily balances drop into a lower balance tier, you will be rewarded that tier’s cash bonus. If your daily balance decreases to an amount less than $10,000, you will not qualify for a cash bonus.
- This offer cannot be combined with any other Capital One 360 new savings account opening offer, including savings accounts opened through Refer A Friend. Only one promotional code is accepted. Bonus is only valid for one account.
- Capital One will deposit the bonus into your account within 60 days after you have completed all the requirements above. If your account is in default, closed or suspended, or otherwise not in good standing, you will not receive the bonus.
- All bank account bonuses are treated as income/interest and as such you have to pay taxes on them
This account has no monthly fees to worry about
Early Account Termination Fee
There is no early account termination fee
We’ve seen similar bonuses before, but sometimes the lower deposits have bigger bonuses (e.g deposit $10,000 & get $200). The $500 bonus is in line with other offers. Cumulative deposits used to work as well, but Capital One changed the terms awhile ago and that no longer works (it still works for the Discover bonus though). I’ll add this to our list of the best savings bonuses, but might make sense to wait for a bigger bonus to return if you’re doing the $100/$200 bonus.
