Overview

Started in 2007, American Plus Bank has $482 million in assets as well as deposits totaling $384 million, which makes the institution a medium-size bank. American Plus Bank, whose headquarters are in Arcadia, California, lacks premium access to customer service, with no options for live chat or all-day service. It is a traditional brick-and-mortar bank with in-person service, in addition to its online and mobile apps. At a SmartAsset rating of 3.5 stars out of 5, American Plus Bank should be more closely inspected to see if its services match your needs. American Plus Bank provides customers with a complete array of product offerings, including savings accounts, checking accounts, money market accounts, CDs, IRAs and mortgage products. It has a fair savings rate; other popular banks have higher rates. The bank's standard checking product carries a $10.00 monthly fee, although banks sometimes have requirements that allow you to waive the fee. Finding a bank with no-fee checking and a high interest rate savings account is the best option for accruing the highest income on your deposits while having convenient access to your funds.

American Plus Bank does not have the best savings rate, which means you should consider taking a look elsewhere for banks that deliver more return for your money. CDs can be a terrific option to achieve higher returns, but there are limitations to accessing your money. American Plus Bank's CD rates are fair in comparison to other U.S. banks.
