Zions Bank was founded by Mormon pioneers in Utah in 1873. In 1957, Zion’s Savings Bank and Trust Company (as it was known) merged with Utah Savings and Trust Company and First National Bank of Salt Lake City. It became Zions First National Bank – which is the bank’s official name today. However, it wasn’t until 1960 that the LDS Church sold its majority ownership to Keystone Insurance and Investment Company. In 1961, Zions First Nation Investment Company was incorporated in Nevada, and acquired ownership of the stock owned by Keystone. In 1965, the investment company changed its name to Zions Bancorporation, and in 1966, the company went public.

Today, Zions First National Bank is still a subsidiary of Zions Bancorporation. Zions is a full service bank, offering commercial services, consumer banking products, and business banking to its customers. Specialty services include ag finance, correspondent banking and private services. Nationwide, it is possible to access Zions Bank services via the Internet. There are offices in Arizona, California, Colorado, Idaho, Nevada, New Mexico, Oregon, Texas, Utah and Washington.

Zions Bank offers competitive interest rates on deposit accounts, including savings, money market and CD accounts. The bank also offers interest checking accounts. The bank did accept TARP funds after the 2008 financial crisis, but has since repaid them.

A caring and professional bank

I was in Utah for college and BoA was not available in the area for me to deposit/withdraw money and manage my account. I went into Zion Bank in South Jordan, UT to open an account. I was greeted very warmly, like family. I opened up a savings/checking account with them. Their web experience is very user friendly and easy to navigate. I would definitely recommend Zion bank. They also offered me a small scholarship for attending a university nearby.

Great Service

After doing contract work there I opened an account and am happy with the service for the last 2 years

Zions Bank is just so-so

I've been with Zions Bank with over 10 years, but I just decided to cut off my ties with them. The reasons for doing so include their lousy savings rates and really poor experiences I've had with other aspects of the institution. When I'm making less return on my savings than inflation, I really need to switch to a better bank. Most experiences with customer service have been friendly, but I haven't been made a very high priority to other things the tellers and bankers seem to be doing. I've had a number of problems with their on-site ATMs shooting money out or just eating my money. One instance in particular took 4 hours out of my day to just get my money deposited after the ATM ate it. That's just really unacceptable. I'm looking for a new bank now that is competitive and doesn't have so many logistical problems.

Poor Customer Service

Posted by: oslagbar | Dec 15, 2014

I've been with Zions for almost 10 years and they have quickly become the worst possible banking experience ever. They offer products in which the local branches are unable to handle and need to call the Salt Lake City office for everything, They must provide little or no employee training as they customer service is no service at all. When doing an internal transfer of funds from the savings account to the checking account they hold the funds for a day. These are internal funds from balances that are supposed to be available balances. I have never had a bank put a hold on their their own funds. The branch manager has no interest in customer service and the HQ in SLC really don't care. I've tried to resolve issues in a calm and professional manner and have no results. Closing accounts and would never do business with them again.
