Bankinter has announced that it will integrate the products marketed under the Coinc brand into its website. As of next February, customers of the online entity will have to operate through Bankinter’s website. This is one of the main new features of the last few days, but there is more, such as the launch of a new service for making transfers without having to know the recipient’s account number or the renewal of Nationale-Nederlanden’s welcome campaign that allows new customers to earn up to 50 euros for opening a savings account. The financial product comparator HelpMyCash.com details all the latest news.
Coinc will be integrated into Bankinter from 10 February 2020. The virtual platform, originally created to market a savings account that rented at 4% APR (currently offers 0.20%), puts an end to seven years of trajectory. From then on, Coinc customers will only be able to consult its products (account, card, mortgage…) and operate through the Bankinter website (Coinc’s personal area will remain active until 10 February). In order to obtain the password to access Bankinter’s private area, it is necessary to access Coinc’s website and request it. According to the entity, the objective of this strategy is to “offer a greater catalogue of products and services” to Coinc customers. Despite the integration, the entity will maintain the same account number, as well as the current remuneration and the rest of the conditions. What will cease to exist are the goals, since on the Bankinter website it will only be possible to see the total balance of the account.
