Higher One Adds New Checking Account Options

Wednesday, February 29, 2012

Higher One, a technology and payment services company focused on higher education, today announces expanded checking account options available for college students. Previously only offered to current customers, Higher One now offers new customers immediate access to three checking account options tailored to suit the differing personal banking behavior of students.

These new checking accounts offer distinctly different features than the basic OneAccount, such as the option of no PIN fees, a specified number of foreign ATM fee reimbursements, and access to uncomplicated online budgeting tools that help students keep track of their spending and set budgeting goals.

"We are continually listening to students to find out what they prefer and don't prefer about the services that we offer. The additional checking account options that we are announcing were very popular with current customers and we are making them available to new customers in a direct response to the needs that have been expressed to us," said Miles Lasater, co-founder and COO of Higher One."
