Founded in 1980 in Houston, Texas, Woodforest National Bank is a privately-owned bank now headquartered in The Woodlands, Texas. It operates well over 700 branch locations in several different states and offers both personal and business depository banking products.

As far as personal banking products go, Woodforest National Bank offers checking accounts, savings accounts, money market accounts, Certificates of Deposit (CDs), and Individual Retirement Accounts CDs (IRA CDs). Furthermore, it offers convenient online and mobile banking services to its personal banking customers.

Woodforest’s personal checking accounts offer a variety of interest rates, depending upon the account balance. Additionally, Woodforest offers a “Second Chance” checking account, with higher maintenance fees, for those “who have experienced previous bank account challenges.”

For personal savings options, Woodforest offers money market accounts, savings accounts, CDs with terms ranging from 1 month to 5 years, and IRA CDs with terms ranging from 6 months to 5 years.

On the business side, Woodforest offers both business checking accounts and business loans, in addition to a variety of services. Its business checking accounts offer a range of benefits, depending upon transaction volume and account balance. Much like the “Second Chance” personal checking account, Woodforest offers a “Second Chance” business checking account, for “business customers who have experienced previous bank account challenges.” Finally, there is a business money market checking account option, with competitive variable interest rates. However, like other money market accounts, there is a limit of 6 withdrawals a month. Excessive withdrawals will incur fees.

Second Chance Banking

Woodforest Bank is a bank located within Walmart stores. It is a second chance bank for people who cannot get bank accounts otherwise. I was really excited to find this bank because I really needed a second chance. I have banked with Woodforest for the past two years. There fees for using debit cards and making withdrawals are very reasonable. I have a special feature on my checking account where I am able to overdraw without penalty. That certainly comes in handy when I have unsuccessfully balanced my check book and overdrew. I would recommend this bank to other people needing a second chance. The start up fee is very reasonable and Woodforest meets all of their customers banking needs.

Woodforest Bank Holds On Account

Posted by: |

FYI, in Texas when you use the debit card at the pump.. Woodforest puts a 75.00 hold on your account though you spend only 30-40 and this applies if you use it as debit or credit,,, I tried both ways to test it.

It takes 24 hours for the actual amount to post on Woodforest.... No other Debit card has ever done this... I've had several with different banks,,, It is not the Service Station... I called Woodforest they tried to say it was the Service Station,... NOPE,,, I use different debit cards so I can verify,, it is Woodforest
