GOBankingRate noted BBVA's free checking account options as well as its high 12-month CD rate as reasons for including the bank. The listing also noted BBVA's fee-free account access at up to 64,000 ATMs on higher level checking accounts.
"At BBVA, we continually work to create the value our customers seek in the products and services we provide," said BBVA USA Head of Retail Banking Murat Çagri Süzer. "That means offering competitive interest rates and fees as GOBankingRates noted, as well as the robust combination of ATMs, branches and an award-winning mobile banking app for maximum customer access."
This year marks the eighth annual Best Banks ratings, which analyzes over 3,300 data points across more than 130 banks. Regional banks are defined as those serving multi-state areas with a presence in at least five states but fewer than 20. Banks were ranked according to checking account fees, savings account and CD rates, and financial strength. The depth of the banks' product lines also carried weight in the ranking.
This recognition follows on the heels of two additional industry awards. BBVA USA was one of five banks named as an overall leader in Business Insider Intelligence in its 2019 Mobile Banking Competitive Edge study. The bank was also named the 2019 CX leader for the U.S. commercial middle market banking by Greenwich Associates.
