According to the company, the BankMobile Vibe platform is a student-centric checking account available at campuses that use BankMobile Disbursements. The platform features online bill pay, card on/off switch and money management tools, no minimum balance, robust mobile app, access to more than 55,000 fee-free Allpoint ATMs, an optional interest-bearing BankMobile Savings Account, and a recognition program for smart money management, academic achievement, and good financial behavior.
BankMobile noted that through the partnerships, Vibe customers now have an exclusive benefit with Billshark, which offers bill negotiation and subscription cancellation services. Beginning in the Spring 2020 semester, BankMobile Vibe customers will receive special discounts to bartleby offerings, which include bartleby learn, featuring textbook solutions and a Q&A service, and bartleby write, an all-in-one writing help tool.
Speaking about the collaborations, Regine Fiddler, CMO at BankMobile, shared:
“These two partnerships further demonstrate our commitment to helping our students both in and out of the classroom. We hope that this will enable them to further cut costs and offer them new educational tools to assist with their academic success.”
Launched in January 2015, BankMobile’s mission is to provide a compliant, mobile-first banking experience that is simple, affordable and financially empowering. Over the past five years, BankMobile claims it has grown to be in the Top 15 banks in the U.S. in terms of the number of consumer checking accounts serviced.
