Not The Best Option

Posted by: Yoshi | Apr 25, 2016

I tried this bank briefly as it was convenient to my hometown and allowed me to start a savings account for while I was working around my hometown. The fees are minimal, which is good, but I found the services lacking and the amount of financial information to be severely lacking. They have no consultation services and no workshops to help new bank patrons make smart decisions about their money. I also find their dividend payouts to be minimal compared to the competition, and their debit card fees and international fees to be somewhat exorbitant, which I guess makes sense for a small county bank. All the same, I did not find enough reasons to hold an account with this bank and fled to a competitor.
