Bank Overview

MidFirst Bank has an overall health grade of “A" at DepositAccounts.com, with a Texas Ratio of 2.73% (excellent), based on June 30, 2021 data. In the past year, the Bank has increased its total non-brokered deposits by $2.62 billion, an excellent annual growth rate of 17.97%. Please refer to our financial overview of MidFirst Bank (FDIC Certificate # 4063) for more details.

MidFirst Bank, one of the largest privately owned banks in the United States, traces its roots to Midland Mortgage Company, which was founded in 1950 by a group of Oklahoma City area bankers. The name was changed to MidFirst Bank in 1982, following the purchase of a thrift charter. Between 2009 and 2016, there were four acquisitions: Community Bank of Arizona, Union Bank, N.A. (AZ), Steele Street Bank & Trust (Denver), and 1st Century Bank, N.A. (Los Angeles). MidFirst Bank is currently the second largest bank headquartered in Oklahoma, with assets in excess of $31 billion and more than 537,000 customer accounts.

Bottom Line

To state the obvious again, checking bonuses are more attractive when interest rates are low because they offer a significant amount not available in either a liquid account or short-term CD. Opening a fee-free LiveFree Checking with $100 minimum deposit is the easiest route to claiming the $300 bonus. There are no liquid accounts or CDs that currently return $300 on a small deposit in approximately three months. Earning $300 in an online savings account, with the current top rate of 0.60% APY, would require a $50k balance on deposit for a year.
