"We're capturing more value both from lending and from spending and can use this – together with behavioral data – to offer powerful benefits to new and existing members alike. Moreover, more than 45% of the initial funding from new members is coming from the four largest banks, reflecting that the value we provide to our members is unmatched by traditional banking."

LendingClub's superior products and services are built to help its members achieve and maintain financial wellness. For personal banking, LendingClub offers a High-Yield Savings account, a Rewards Checking account and certificates of deposits (CDs) with competitive interest rates for new and existing members alike.

Its award-winning Rewards Checking account has earned official certification by the national Cities for Financial Empowerment Fund as meeting the BankOn National Standards for trust and affordability for consumer transactional accounts. The account offers the opportunity to earn unlimited 1% cash back on Qualified Purchases3, no monthly maintenance, overdraft or NSF fees4, ATM fee rebates – saving potentially $180 annually5, access to your paycheck up to 2 days earlier6, and competitive interest rates of up to 0.15%7 to help your money grow. Based on its easy-to-use mobile app (iOS and Android) and award-winning online checking account, NerdWallet named it the Best Bank or Credit Union for Online Experience.

With its Certificates of Deposits, members can save for the future by earning 4.00% with a 1-year CD and 4.10% with a 2–5-year CD from LendingClub. CDs offer fixed rates with predictable returns that are guaranteed for the duration of the CD term.
