Finally A Bank That Gets It.

There are banks and then there is my bank. never have I banked anywhere that they have gone above and beyond personal service. From monitoring my debit card activity to the smiling face when I walk in the front door. No other word to explain it but A++. Chrissy always greets you with a hello and a great smile and Vicky's bubbly personality makes my banking a pleasure instead of a chore

1St Advantage Bank

I don't care what the ratings state, 1st Advantage Bank is exceptional in service.  I have banked with many banks in the area and have not found one close to the friendly service I receive everytime I walk in to the bank.  I am one HAPPY customer!
