Classic Mobile App Set to Retire

Wednesday, July 18 at 09:00 AM
Category: Arvest News

Now is the time to Arvest Go.

Arvest Classic—our first mobile banking app—will no longer work beginning fall 2018. We removed the app from the app stores on July 12, 2018 in anticipation of this upcoming change.

Why is This Happening?

The vendor that supports our Classic mobile app has made the decision to stop its support and maintenance of this product for our customers.

Although the app is no longer supported by the vendor, it should continue working until the disconnect date in fall 2018 unless it is deleted from the device. We apologize for any inconvenience this change may have caused.

New Mobile Banking App Available

Logging in and using our new mobile banking app, Arvest Go, is easy. Arvest Go has all the best features of Classic plus several enhancements, such as fingerprint login and an optimized mobile check deposit experience.

To get started, simply download the free Arvest Go app on your iPhone®* or Android™* device and sign in using your current Classic online banking login ID and password. After successfully logging in to Arvest Go, be sure to delete the Arvest Classic app from your device.

Ensure you are running the most current OS for an optimal experience with Arvest Go. The Arvest Go app requires at least Apple iOS 9 or Android 5 Lollipop to run.

We make frequent updates to Arvest Go based on the newest technology trends and feedback from our customers. We are excited to bring you the best we have to offer in mobile banking.

Browser-only Banking

The Classic mobile web banking service will also retire this fall, but mobile web banking will not go away. The look and feel of your experience will change.

Mobile Web BlueIQ™ accessed through your device’s browser will feature standard online banking and bill payment functions as well as easy-to-use personal money management tools.

To enjoy an optimal banking experience on your iPad®, please use Online Banking with BlueIQ™, accessed easily through your tablet’s browser. Our replacement mobile app, Arvest Go, is not currently configured for iPad viewing and usage.

New to Mobile Banking or Have Questions?

If you are new to mobile and online banking with Arvest, visit with an associate at your local branch or call us at (866) 952-9523 to get a login ID and temporary password.

If you have additional questions regarding these upcoming changes, call us at (866) 952-9523. Arvest’s goal is to continually improve your banking experience with updated products and services.

Asked to pay by gift card? It’s a Scam!

Tuesday, July 17 at 09:00 AM
Category: Personal Finance

Arvest Bank is warning consumers about scams related to gift cards.

According to the Federal Trade Commission (FTC), many people are being targeted by scammers asking for payment in the form of gift cards. These scammers may call people claiming to be with the IRS, or tech support, or a so-called family member in need. If you’ve gotten a call like this, you know that the caller will then demand the gift card numbers and PIN.

And, poof, your money is gone.

Scammers are good at convincing people there really is an emergency, so lots of people have made the trip to local merchants to buy gift cards to send these callers. And scammers love gift cards – it’s one of their favorite ways to get your money. These cards are like giving cash – and nearly untraceable, unless you act almost immediately.

Here’s the most important thing for you to know: anyone who demands payment by gift card is always a scammer.

Gift cards are for gifts, not payments. If you’ve bought a gift card and lost money to someone who might be a scammer, tell the company who issued the card. (The contact info might be on the card, but might require some research). Tell them their card was used in a scam. If you act quickly enough, they might be able to get your money back. But – either way – it’s important that they know what happened to you. And then please tell the FTC about your loss by visiting www.ftc.gov/complaint*. Your report helps the FTC try to shut the scammers down.

How to Report Fraud Related to Your Arvest Accounts

  • To report Identity Theft, financial fraud or an unauthorized transaction in your account, please contact Customer Service immediately at (866) 952-9523.

  • To report a lost or stolen credit, debit or ATM card, please contact Customer Service immediately at (866) 952-9523 or by using our Contact Us page.

  • To report a suspicious email, phone call or text message, please forward the suspicious email to, or send a message to: reportfraud@arvest.com.
