Not practical for deposit account holders
From what I hear this app and Capital One as a whole is AMAZING for credit card holders but for those that own deposit accounts this app really isn’t that useful! I’ve been banking with Capital One for years and I can honestly say I miss a lot of the features the Capital One Wallet app used to provide. I’d love the developers of this app to take their deposit account holders into consideration and add features like alerts when a deposit is made to my account as well as alerts when a transaction is made over a certain dollar amount. To be clear, when I say alerts I mean actual notifications to my device sent from the app that appear on my home screen. I don’t want to have to receive alerts via text that is so outdated plus I have enough text threads as it is between work and family. I’m beginning to feel like Capital One isn’t interested in investing in their deposit account holders now or even in the future. I believe this company is more focused and geared towards their credit and lending services. To be fair Chase not only provides these basic notification services to customers but they also have added the ability to view what you spend money on weekly to their app. I do not want to close my accounts and go over to another bank because I truly enjoy banking with Cap. One. I love everything from the customer service all the way down to the debit card design. But I have a feeling I will leave if I don’t see any changes being made.
Capital one app is a convenient way of tracking expenses and making on the spot payments. In our business it was a great card, with multiple users we made payments daily if not twice daily. Apps are made for convenience. However, with the C1 App there is no way to remove draft accounts. Some what Defeats the purpose of having a mobile App. We had someone break into our office and forge checks . Our bank(s) closed our accounts-as we have 3 dba’s. Just as our daily capital one payments were being drafted our accounts were closed. using the Capital one App, we added our new accounts- the only difference in draft account numbers were first 3 digits. The capital one App only shows the last 4 digits. So if you are traveling as we do in our industry, living by our smart phones, you are stuck guessing what account is the correct account to be drafted. Capital one closed our account and refused to reopen it. After 2 years of multiple weekly payments and 10 of thousands spent on the card monthly , our Capital one app failed us by not showing which bank account was which.
Make sure if you change bank accounts you are near a desktop to immediately change draft information because the mobile app will not allow you to delete accounts. We changed over 30 payable accounts due to this forgery nightmare. Capital one is the only card that failed us and closed our account- App is incomplete and still needs work.
I love the app + credit wise feature
I’ve been using the Capital one app for about a year and a half. It’s easy to use, easy to make payments, easy to redeem cash back rewards. It’s a great and easy app. I like it way better then my Bank of America app.
I also love the credit wise feature. It has help me go from mid 700’s to over 800 in a little over a year. It helped me understand what would raise my score and how simple patience and keeping balances low would lower my score over time. I loved he simulators. I plan to buy a new car eventually and I want to be over 800 when I do it and I understand once I buy that car my score will go down a bit. I’ve turned down every offer to open a new credit card as I know it would lower my score for a while. I opened a few accounts at the same time I got the app and then I realized that was a mistake and I should not have done them all at once as I really didn’t need to I could have paid cash for one of the items so now I just have to wait for them to fall off as “new accounts” I think will happen in about 5 months and my score will go even higher!
Thank you capital 1 app designers. Thank you credit wise people!
E-Bills Don’t show accurate status
By QueenB Pepper
The app is generally great with two exceptions (and I can’t find a way to DM these complaints/suggestions)
1. E-bills are useless on the app. The app always indicates 0.00 is due on my e-bills. to see what may be due...even when a bill is overdue. At the exact same time, the website (or Safari) view will show an actual amount due and red warning that the bill is overdue. It has been like this for years. I can’t believe they haven’t fixed this yet. It’s very misleading and caused me to miss bills because I thought the weren’t due yet. (Lazy, yes. But I came to rely on my other online bank with which I also have e-bills because they display my bill status correctly)
2. In older versions of the app I could see many months of historical transactions. Now it’s very limited and sometime you need to look for something older than one month.
CapOne - your are my third bank on these accounts and I’ve gone through NetBank (which had great online bill pay (pre apps), to ING which would not support e-bills at all at first and forced me to another bank for e-bills, and now to you. If you’d get your e-bills better managed in the app, I could finally move away from the other bank. Please fix the e-bill status displays in the app. Look at some of your competitors for best practices.
For everyday stuff, the app does what it needs to do. For transfers (both paying people and transferring money to external accounts), lord help us all.
Cap 1 has been painfully behind Chase’s curve for nearly a decade now when trying to send money to people. Not only is transferring through Zelle a giant pain (Chase uses them too and it works fine, so why such a bad experience with Cap1?!), trying to know what automatic transfers have been set up is an act of futility. In the past, I could go to the website and see all of the transfers I have set up. The app shows them, but I can’t edit or cancel a series of transfers. Now, their website is just stupid with transfers and doesn’t even show them all even though the app shows them. I can’t cancel an upcoming transfer because it has gotten so far off target for when I actually need the money to appear in another account. So now I have to check back on the website (and risk forgetting) just to cancel a recurring transfer. I’ve had a transfer not show up anywhere, so I scheduled another one only to find out that caused two transfers. I tried to cancel one, they both disappeared. Set up another transfer only for there to be two transfers again. Get your *ish together Cap 1! Stop trying to redesign your website into the stupid boxes and make it functional!
Inaccurate-do not trust!
By Crystal Pystal
Never trust this app. They can claim to update often all they want but it’s not true. They are currently in the process of closing ALL branch banks! That includes every ATM attached to those buildings. I travel ALL of the time and switched from Citi to even crappier Cap1 HUGE mistake. They make all these claims about convenience but I’ve had nothin but problems. All I want to do is make Instant transfers from my Cap1 checking account to pay towards my credit card while traveling. I should be able in todays world with all the technology out there to move money from one account to another at the touch of a button. Instantly. If I take out too much cash and do not spend it and decide to put back into a Cap1 ATM before getting onto a plane I shouldn’t have to go to 4 freaking locations only to find NONE of them have working locations AFTER having checked the app and the CapitolOne website Repeatedly to see it said those locations confirmed and stated they had working ATMs that took deposits! Are you kidding me? Why can’t this be updated at the minimum of midnight every night for accuracy? I officially hate Cap1 and want to take my business elsewhere. By the way multiple people and myself passed each other while attempting to frequency other ATMs and branch locations. At first we laughed then we cursed as we passed each other the fourth time. We all were fed up. I spent almost a habla tank of gas doing this today! Absurd.
I really like this app. Love the Credit Wise feature!! It’s given me some awesome tips on growing my credit even more. The app also gives me FREE weekly credit score updates. That’s neat! I am really enjoying my new credit card with Capital One and this cool app. I have called customer service to help me activate my Apple Pay and literally I was connected to someone within 10 secs of my call. I was dreading a long wait... Surprisingly, no wait time, no automated menus, the agent was already aware of the reason to my call and offered me fast, courteous service right on the spot. I am very impressed. I have been a loyal member with AMEX since 2010, but I have got to say, you really surprised me. I’m glad I decided to give you guys a shot. I heard lots of great news on the Clark Howard radio show. I heard a caller discuss a restaurant charge an exorbitant amount for a tip and you guys caught it before he even left the restaurant! THAT is excellent service! I have had that happen before so I could IMMEDIATELY relate. And then it dawned on me... maybe if I would have had Capital One, I could have had a COMPLETELY different experience and never had to go through that nightmare to start with.... So, I am here. Thank you!
Capital One helped me rebuild my credit after I made the mistake of co-signing a vehicle for my boyfriend. He lost his job at one point and I was financially unstable due to being a full time college student to aid him in paying for his motorcycle that he purchased. The voluntary repossession, hurt me for years. I got denied for almost everything I tried to do. Years later, I decided to look into different companies to see which companies offered the best credit card to help me rebuild my credit. Again, I got denied one after another. I was very hopeless when I stumbled across Capital One. I then applied for the secured credit card and paid $99 because it was worth it to help me rebuild my credit and it sure helped! Within 6 months, with responsible use for emergencies only and paying on time. My credit limit went from 300 to 650. After a year, I decided to apply for a second credit card through Capital One, and my credit limit went from 1k to 5k in 6 months, again with responsible use and paying on time. Thank You, Capital One. For helping me rebuild my life, and credit after one mistake I decided to make. Thank you for taking a chance on me. Lesson learned.
First, y’all need to add electronic funds transfer that allows checking account to checking account electronic deposit transfer this eliminates paper check delays in the mail; such as with regular web bill pay, and makes things far more efficient. Please add this feature other banks do, I’ve had this feature before thru other banks, Capital One should have this as big name as it is
Secondly, why can’t I see my recurring transfers or any transfers in pending status and why isn’t there an ability to add or edit as such on the app. I have to go to the website to see and/or edit my transfers, otherwise the app just allows you to make a one time transfer and set one up . Features need to be enhanced to allow display of current transfers n the ability to set up recurring transfers and to edit.
Aside from that, I’m happy with Capital One... another feature that would be nice, would be to add categories to the savings in which you can direct portions of your savings to go, car maintenance in one stash, vacation in another stash, a date night stash, emergency funds stash we could edit each stash to make it our own... this would be fun n convenient, but the first two paragraphs are about business and are high priority on my list as I’m sure it is for others also
Phenomenal speed great customer service
By Ahmad tarabichi
I am absolutely appalled 😮 at how Affective fast decision and constructive this bank has been thus far; with all sincerity Opening my 360 checking account was the greatest financial decision I ever made; I always love to be objectively unbiased in my reviews so I will say that in comparison to the other mobile apps I have tried Wells Fargo is much more user-friendly and accurate and I do not just say that because I am used to it I say that because I have tried all of them from Chase bank of America to Wells Fargo to TD now this (Capital One) And without question capital one is ranked number two in terms of mobile app support however in terms of live customer service; it may be easier to contact Wells Fargo 24 seven because of the malleability & fungible Mobile app; at the end of the day I can take solace knowing that there are live representatives who operate with absolute a hundred percent professionalism. I am very pleased thus far as my 360 checking account has gone. I would appreciate the mobile app being a little bit more scalable in terms of its functionality however I am not one to complain just pointing out the obvious.
