Great People, Great Business

This is where my wife & I both bank after moving to M'boro.  It's a very friendly atmosphere, friendly people, & helpful associates.  They even provide awesome rewards with their rewards checking accounts, & searching around they definitely have the best rates in town.  The only thing I have bad to say is that they need to get their act together when it comes to making deposits, we have to fill out over a minutes worth of paperwork with every deposit, but even still we love our neighborhood bank.  Check them out when you get a chance. 

Only For The Money

This bank pays 1.51% APY on checking. The account needs to have 10 debit transactions per month, plus a few other easily followed rules. Their mobile app is not so terrific and the folks in the call center are somewhat snooty.

However, I'm a rate whore, so the 1.51% on my emergency fund pays me about $300-plus per year. I can put up with the other stuff since I am getting some yield.

Worst Banking Experience Ever

After being with Northwest Georgia for close to 20 years, First Bank has taken over and I have had nothing but issues. Their online banking is a joke, their ACH deposits are only pulled once a day, sometimes my card will work and sometimes I have double charges. After several issues, I'm finished. I will be closing both accounts with them tomorrow and taking my business elsewhere. At this point, I would rather pay for a checking account than deal with them any longer.

Terrible Bank

Banked with Northwest Georgia Bank for 20 years, with no issues. Since First Bank took over, it has been nothing but problems. Had issues with payments been taken out twice, and also ATM withdrawals being doubled. When I contacted the bank they try to say card was swiped twice. This is BS. I have now closed my account. There were other customers at the bank location I was at having the same issues on the same days. I guess they make their money by scamming customers. Word of warning for former Northwest Georgia Bank customers, keep a close watch on your accounts. Too bad you can't give negative ratings
