What is the EVO Smart Account and how does it work?

In line with the digitalization of EVO Bank, the EVO Smart Account is requested and managed completely online. One of its greatest appeals is that there are no fees or maintenance costs of any kind.

In addition, this bank account is connected to a savings account with remuneration of 0% T.A.E. (Annual Equivalent Rate) – and you don’t have to wait a whole year to withdraw the earnings, you can do it in a monthly basis!

By having this account, you get a Smart Visa Card with which you can withdraw money from 16,000 ATMs, free of charge both in Spain and abroad (in the latter case, the bank that owns the ATM could make a charge).

Features of the EVO Smart Account

  • Bank account. Designed for everyday use. It does not charge opening or maintenance fees.
  • Savings account. If on the 15th of each month you have a balance of €3,000+ in your checking account, the amount that exceeds that quantity is automatically transferred to the savings account – which is remunerated at 0% T.A.E. up to the first €30,000.
  • National withdrawals. Unlimited and fee-free at more than 16,000 ATMs in Spain, including EVO ATMs, Red EURO6000 (except CaixaBank), Grupo Cooperativo Cajamar, Grupo Caja Rural, EURO Automatic Cash, Targo Bank, Banca March, Deutsche Bank and Popular. At other ATMs it is free if withdrawn €120+.
  • Foreign withdrawals. Also free and unlimited, although the entity that owns the ATM could apply its own rate.
  • Visa Smart Card. It’s free and works like credit and debit. Includes insurance with accident and travel coverage.
  • Payment options. Apple Pay, Google Pay, EVO Wallet, EVO Bizum, Hal Cash and other mobile payment methods.
