This Was The First Time I Actually Wanted to Visit a Bank Branch

Last week we attended the opening of a new Capital One flagship bank on Union Square at 14th and Broadway, and we were blown away!

Their flagship branch location is not just a bank — It’s an innovative space where you can experience a new way of banking and sit back and relax while doing it.

The Union Square location offers customers everything a normal bank would, with a few bonuses: advice on bank accounts, they help you apply for a loan, show you how to use the latest online/mobile banking tools and ultimately help you reach your financial goals.

You are also able to transfer money, receive cashier checks and learn more about their credit cards, investing, auto lending and Spark Small Business products.

And on top of all that, you can sip a handcrafted Peet’s Coffee beverage while you’re there at 50% off when using the Capital One credit or debit card.

They Are Definitely Embracing Digital Banking

What we love about them is that at Capital One you have the ability to bank more ways using the latest digital tools and innovations, which makes it easier to manage your money.

They make bold moves to redesign the banking experience so that the customer feels like their money always fuels their purpose.

It’s also a one-of-a-kind space that includes a coffee place, lounge and work space with free wifi to recharge your devices or do a little work.

And this is open to anyone, you don’t have to be a Capital One customer.

The basement floor also has meeting spaces and small conference rooms for community groups and organizations to meet, as well as a table with iPads for people to browse through online products, booth seating overlooking Union Square and areas for people to talk to bank associates about Capital One’s full suite of products, if they’re interested.
