It's about getting you the best savings interest rates.
Interest rates continue to rise and we keep working quickly to pass those rates on to you. At Frost, having higher savings interest rates is a priority for us. It's one of the many ways we put our customers first and help them grow financially.
Get your hands on your direct deposits up to two days earlier
We're making direct deposits available up to two days earlier in any Frost personal checking account. So whether you're paying bills or building savings, you're worrying less and doing more with what's yours. We post qualifying direct deposits throughout the day as we receive notification the payment is coming in.
Say goodbye to fees on overdrafts of $100 or less
And say hello to a more understanding overdraft program that won’t ding you for being human. So if forgetting to cancel a $7 auto-renewal causes you to overdraw your account by $100 or less, we won't charge you a $35 fee as long as you meet qualifying conditions.
Save for every little thing.
