Small Town Shawnee Bank

Posted by: Callidn | May 2, 2018

I started with Arvest when it was really small. My grandmother married for the 2nd time to the president of American National Bank in Shawnee, OK. This bank later became Arvest. I probably started with them in '96. I had mortgages on 3 homes over time. Checking, savings, debit and managing my Aunt's Living Trust account, so I ran the full gamut with them, except investments. I was not a big money person at all; very middle class BUT the people there knew my name and who I was there to see, offered coffee, popcorn, short wait times, excellent customer service, personalized service. Over time the bank grew from the one downtown location to 3 locations. By the time I left Shawnee, I had personal contacts in all 3 locations. Then I move to Menifee, CA. WOW!! What a change. No one knows my name after 2 1/2 years, longer waits, impersonal but good service. It's a whole different world. I miss the small town mentality. The friendliness. I worked high end retail for my last 8 years in OK, and so many of the bank employees started to come in just because I mentioned it. Some became friends. (I even remember way back when, the American National Bank had a cafeteria upstairs, for their employees and my grandmother and I would go down to have lunch with her hubby, the Prez.)

My Arvest Banking Experience

I have been a customer of Arvest for nearly my entire. Their service is fast, easy, and reliable. They allow checks to be deposited with camera phones and their cards are accepted at every store across the country which is always a plus. They have one of the best fraud departments, in my personal experience that is. Anytime a charge is made without the customer's approval, a representative freezes the account and calls the customer to make sure they are the authorized user. This is a common feature but they are great at customer service. Best of all, these services are entirely free. It costs nothing to open an account or to make a transaction for personal accounts. If you open a business account there is a fee of $100 which is reasonable. All in all a good experience.

Arvest - Back When I Started With Them

Posted by: Piradairst | Apr 9, 2018

When I started with Arvest in Shawnee, OK, it was probably 1998 or so. They were very local (AR and OK only). They were right downtown. The reason I went to them in the first place with my banking is that they used to be called American National Bank (even more local). My grandmother had remarried to Mr. H.T. Riddle when I was in college (she was 68 and he was 83). He was, at that time, President of American National. They had a full cafeteria! Of course, they eventually became Arvest and they were still the stereotypical small town bank. I had checking only with them when I started. BUT, when I walked in someone would greet me by first name and ask if I wanted coffee, etc. Originally coming from CA, it was a novelty! They had the ubiquitous popcorn machine, coffee, water, etc. There was always someone there able to answer my questions. If I had to wait it was 10 minutes at most. Eventually I had checking, savings and a mortgage through Arvest. I still have 2 checking accounts, even after moving back to CA; my checking and one for the Rev. Living Trust for my recently deceased Aunt, Jo Garrett. I moved back to CA 2 year ago and they no longer write mortgages in CA or I would still have my mortgage with them. They were a great experience. Currently, I am with Chase. NOT a small-town bank. Nobody knows my name. I have no complaints about them but they are not Arvest. Thank you.

Arvest Bank, Bartlesville, OK

We have lost confidence in this bank. Earlier this year, they ran someone else's $900+ check thru our account & we had to fight to get our money back several weeks later. Just yesterday they a check that we had written a boat dealership in the amount of $14,255 a year and a half ago showed up AGAIN in our account! Why would they even honor a check a year and a half old? So they took the amount out of our account AGAIN. We are working hard to get this money back. This bank is so full of mistakes, we are looking for another bank that does not make such mistakes.
