BBVA Compass

Text Message Banking

With Mobile Banking you can bank right from your mobile phone with simple, easy-to-remember text messages. Want to know your balance? Need to transfer some money? All it takes is a quick text message.

With Mobile Banking you can:

  • Check balances on any BBVA Compass account included on your Online Banking Service
  • View "posted" and "pending" transactions
  • Transfer funds between accounts

The best part is, you don't have to enter your account number when you use Mobile Banking. Once your wireless phone is registered, you can bank easily and securely from anywhere you use your mobile phone — you send us a text message command to our universal short code 455555, and we text you back with the information you want. Here's an example:

  • Text "BAL" to Mobile Banking at 455555
  • You'll get a text message back with the balance from three of your checking, savings, or money market account(s)

And there are detailed help screens in case you forget any of the text commands. Watch a demo of Text Message Banking.

Text Message Banking is a fast, easy and totally convenient way to manage your BBVA Compass accounts. One more thing: it’s free! So why not sign up for Mobile Banking today?

BBVA Compass does not charge for Mobile Banking, however standard rates/other charges apply when using Compass Mobile. Check with your wireless carrier for your text message rate plan and available plans.
