Looking for a good, smaller bank?

In my experience, I have not had good interactions with any of the big banking institutions. Their customer service was impersonal. They had a fee for every little thing you needed to do. After trying out smaller, local banks I will never go back to a bigger bank. Our current bank, Banner Bank, has excellent customer service and the clerks almost always remember you. I have not had one negative interaction with them. Their website has been a little slow to catch up to today's technology, but has recently caught up and is now above average. Best bank I have ever tried!

Banner Bank is a great local bank!

I have banked with Banner Bank since 2013. Originally i opened a small savings account because of a free 50$ promotion they were offering but i was impressed by their customer service and soon i switched my main accounts to them. The fees were considerably less than Bank Of America where i was previously at, especially for monthly services. Also the customer service line was very easy to get a hold of a live person and not be put on hold and have to run through a bunch of computer operated phone menus. After four years with them I still recommend Banner Bank to all the people i know.

My experience with Banner bank.

I have banked with this community bank for about 3 years now, and I am very happy with them. They do not have all the bells and whistles like the big banks do, but are on a more personal level with me. I like the people who work at my local branch and they know me by name. I feel like a part of their family and that they just do not want my money like most of the big banks do. I chose this bank after being with a major bank for a long time, and find that I really appreciate the personal attention that I receive, and this will make me continue using this community bank for many years to come.

Completely Wrong Balances At Night Resulting In Overdrafts

As early/mid 2019, Banner Bank's website, phone system, and debit card system are wildly inaccurate at night due to 'nightly processing' and whatever vendor they outsource to.

I raised this issue, and it was confirmed by K.B., a VP at Banner Bank, but only after dealing with several layers of customer service that were both 1) completely uninformed and in denial of their problem, and 2) tone-deaf/arrogant in their replies, including this particular VP.

I echo other review's complaints about their outsourced fraud prevention. It's needlessly frustrating, and requires WAY too much effort on the customer end to unblock a merchant, transaction, or your entire card.

I don't know why anyone would use a bank that isn't willing to provide accurate balance figures, regardless of time of day. There are plenty other banks/CU that refund ATM fees.
