Great small town bank

Posted by: Mattyice | Jul 20, 2015

I have held an account with this bank for over 4 years now. During that time, I have discovered that they offer great, personable customer service. This bank services primarily smaller towns, so you know you will get a small town, friendly feel when talking to any of the employees. Last fall, my debit card was hijacked by an identity thief. They cancelled my card, despite it being after hours, and got me a new one within a week. The online and mobile sites are nothing to get excited about. However, they seem to effectively report your balances and purchases. The sites don't offer some features you might find at larger banks, but again, they get the job done. Furthermore, this bank just isn't as good as some larger banks in terms of rates and programs. However, if you are willing to accept that, you will be rewarded with excellent customer service from a safe, friendly bank.

Experience with Frandsen Bank Online

My wife and I have banked with Frandsen Bank for many years now and have made use of their online deposit accounts. As of the moment, we only make use of a checking account. This is because we had moved all of our money out of our prior savings account and kept the balance at $0 for long enough for them to shut it down. We have been meaning to re-open a savings account, but we rarely go to the actual bank, making use of the online services 90+% of the time. We haven't had many troubles using the online banking, as our needs are limited. We enjoyed our ability to transfer to and from deposit accounts in the past, and especially for paying off our mortgage. Overall, Frandsen Bank provides a limited but adequate online service and we are satisfied with controlling our deposit accounts online.
