November 21, 2013

BIRMINGHAM, Ala., Nov. 21, 2013 /PRNewswire/ -- BBVA Compass today unveiled a new premium checking account and three new savings options, the latest step in its overhaul of consumer deposit products launched last month that increases value for customers and simplifies the bank's offerings.

The accounts — BBVA Compass ClearChoice Premium CheckingTM, BBVA Compass ClearChoice Money MarketTM, ClearConnect SavingsTM and BBVA Compass ClearChoice SavingsTM — continue the bank's efforts to lower and eliminate fees and build products customized to customers' specific banking needs and habits.

"We're offering value and straightforward solutions across our entire deposit products line," said Shawn O'Brien, consumer segment director for BBVA Compass. "These latest additions offer even more choices for our clients, including easy-to-understand ways to avoid service charges."

The BBVA Compass ClearChoice Premium Checking account pays interest and is designed for clients enrolled in Preferred Client Plus — a program that rewards individuals who have a strong relationship with the bank.

BBVA Compass ClearChoice Money Market was created for those who maintain significant money market balances and expect to earn rates higher than traditional savings accounts.   

ClearConnect Savings represents BBVA Compass' latest digital offering and was created as a complement to ClearConnect Checking, launched in October for customers who prefer to bank on the go via online and mobile channels.

BBVA Compass ClearChoice Savings is an option for consumers who value the branch experience.

All of the new accounts are offered online through the bank's website, by phone at 1-800-COMPASS and at its branch offices.
