Bankrate has over four decades of experience in financial publishing, so you know you’re getting information you can trust. Bankrate was born in 1976 in the US as “Bank Rate Monitor,” a print publisher for the banking industry. In 1996, Bankrate made its online debut as Bankrate.com. Since then, we have increased our site traffic to over 15 million monthly unique visitors, expanded our distribution outlets and added new content channels.

In 2018, we launched Bankrate.com UK with an office in London, England.

Hundreds of top publications rely on Bankrate, as well. Outlets such as The Wall Street Journal, USA Today, The New York Times, CNBC and Bloomberg depend on Bankrate as the trusted source of financial rates and information.
