First United is headquartered in Durant and is the 3rd largest bank in the state of Oklahoma. It is also the 148th largest bank in the nation. It was established in 1900 and as of December of 2020, it had grown to 1,759 employees at 80 locations. First United has an A health rating.
I recently opened 2 bank accounts with First United Bank. I’ve been working with large and small banks for over 20 years, and I have to say this was my best experience. All the steps happen fast, smoothly and flawlessly. I received immediately the availability of the funds I deposited. The interactions with the bank’s representatives were personable, quick and efficient. They worked with me to understand my needs and tailor a solution that works perfectly for me. I feel treated like a person, not a number. I’m closing my accounts with 2 other banks and moving everything with First United. Highly recommended!
First United Bank, formerly First American Bank has a great customer service department at their Norman NW branch. They offer good service if you go to one of the seven formerly FAB locations. It can be questionable at other branches. They offer the Secure Checking which offers services similar to Lifelock, but there are a few additional services and it is also cheaper and more comprehensive than LifeLock. Their mobile app is ok, but could use some improvement. And ATMs need to be updated as well. This bank offers free ATM withdrawals from 7 Eleven locations in any of the branch's metro areas.
I had to call in to get the rates. What is worse (and a deal breaker for me) is that one needs to go to a branch to complete CD application.
Here is the response I received via chat:
Due to regional differences in the rates we require a phone call into the local community bank for specifics on the rates. You may dial toll free (800) 924-4427 and one of our agents will be able to get you to your local community bank.
