Online Banking Offers Overview
Orange Bank: bonus of up to 100 euros
The French telecom giant launched its banking offering 5 years ago with the ambition of being the first 100% French neobank (My French Bank has been there ever since). Its banking offer focuses on simplicity with 2 types of cards, including a completely free one, accessible without conditions, but with commissions for payments and withdrawals abroad. The second card costs 4.99 euros per month for the first 6 months before moving to 7.99 euros per month. This card offers free payments and withdrawals abroad with a debit option: immediate or deferred. The IBAN issued is French, again, a privilege compared to other more conventional neobanks.
This offer is also available in a family pack at 9.99 euros per month and combining 2 cards, practical for a joint account for example. Keep in mind that it is possible to obtain a checkbook for free, an option necessarily valid in other neobanks or even online banks.
Another of Orange Bank’s advantages is its ability to offer more varied banking products such as savings accounts or even consumer, car or travel loans. This is not the case for some more traditional neobanks.
On the application side, we appreciate the clear and uncluttered interface that allows contactless payment via the NFC function. This is further enhanced by support for Google Pay and Apple Pay.
