4.5 NerdWallet rating

The Capital One 360 savings account interest rate is 1.00% for all balances. That’s much better than the national average of 0.09%. But the annual percentage yields, or APYs, of online savings accounts at other banks are higher — well above 2.00% APY.

If you have more money to deposit, Capital One 360 also offers a money market account with an APY that is higher than its savings rate — 2.00% on balances of at least $10,000.
