American Express Company & Discover Financial Services are competitors with Capital One.  While all three are FDIC insured and all three are considered an “online bank,” it is to be noted that American Express Company & Discover Financial Services have “no physical branches to operate.”  Capital One has its own commercial bank.

American Express does not have its own commercial bank and I have not come across any information that mentions whether Discover has anything like that or not.  It is well known that American Express is geared towards those with a higher income level. These competitors do not have checking and debit cards either, yet all three companies have CD’s, credit cards and savings to offer their clients.
