Online banking has become such an integral part of how we manage our day-to-day finances that it even has its own day of recognition. It’s true! National Online Bank Day is observed the second Monday in October – a traditional U.S. bank holiday (Columbus Day) – so what better time to appreciate the many perks of online banking?

Here are a few reasons Alliant Online Banking is worth celebrating on National Online Bank Day – and every day.
