You probably know that Captial One bought ING Direct in 2012. Since then, not much has changed. However, I recently noticed something new when logging into my account: as of this month, the re-branding campaign is completed and there are almost no signs of the old ING Direct brand (if this happened long before February 2013, maybe I don't log in often enough).
Attempted visits www.INGDirect.com are redirected to www.CapitalOne360.com. The website looks and feels similar (with some of the same menus), but the colors have changed.
What else is different? Luke Landes at Consumerism Commentary highlights two notable differences. First, customers can deposit checks with a mobile device (this has been around for a few months now, but it is surprising that ING Direct didn't offer the service sooner). In addition, customers have more places to get cash for free; the ATM network has expanded.
Otherwise, the acquisition is hardly noticeable. Rates are similar, and Capital One took over ING Direct's existing customer service department.
