I've had a bank account with Centennial Bank for years and they have always been easy to deal with and helpful. I just have a checking account and haven't had any fees for the entire duration of having the account. I even made an overdraft once, and I called them to explain the mistake and they took away the overdraft fee. They really care about their customers from my experience. It's also very easy if you lose your debit card to cancel the old one immediately and get a new one for free at the bank. Everything is very quick and easy for deposits and withdrawals. Their online account features are slightly outdated but they are quick to update your balance and it's very easy to use.
I have always preferred to bank with local institutions. I had the pleasure to bank with Centennial Bank when I was living in Florida a short time ago. The staff was always courteous and often recognized me before I handed over any ID. Everything was always run very professionally. I was a little disappointed when they moved to a new location, but it wasn't far. I had a checking and savings account with Centennial. The interest rates were fairly competitive, and I didn't have to deal with any fees. The website is well laid out and clear. I don't move any money through my cell phone, so I did not use their Mobile app. I know there is one available, and I'm sure it's perfectly safe. I just don't do anything - bank, credit, loans, etc. via my phone. I would definitely recommend using Centennial Bank, and should I move back to Florida, I will certainly transfer my money back.
Banking with Centennial Bank is a great decision. When they acquired Liberty Bank of Arkansas, I had been a customer there for nearly ten years. I was concerned about changes that would be made, but Centennial Bank made the transition very smooth and were helpful in the process. They are always quick to answer any questions I have. I love that my debit card was made immediately right there in the bank. Also, they have an assortment of cards to choose from, and I always get compliments on mine. I currently have a savings account and a checking account. I am able to do all my banking online, which is very convenient. The interest rate on my savings account is pretty low, but it's comparable to other banking institutions in my area.
I had a pleasant years long relationship with Centennial on the Eastern Shore of Mobile Bay. Then they started changing branch managers about as often as hairdressers change shops. A burst of bad customer service and bad communications caused me to move my three accounts elsewhere.
