Overview

Established in 1984, Dollar Bank has assets totaling $8 billion and $7 billion in deposits, classifying it as a large bank. Dollar Bank, whose headquarters are in Pittsburgh, Pennsylvania, lacks premium access to customer service, with no live chat or all-day service options available. It is a traditional brick-and-mortar bank with in-person service, in addition to its online and mobile offerings. With a commendable 4.3 stars out of 5, Dollar Bank proves it is a solid pick to be your bank. Dollar Bank has a choice of banking products, including savings accounts, checking accounts, CDs, IRAs, mortgage products and credit cards. Dollar Bank has a fair savings rate; you can find higher rates with other banks. If you're looking for a checking account for everyday use, Dollar Bank's most basic checking account does not have a monthly fee. Institutions that offer no-fee checking and a high savings APY are the best bet for gaining the most income on your deposits alongside easy access to your money.

Fees

5.0
SmartAsset Average: 4.4

Dollar Bank generally has extremely low fees compared to other U.S. banks. Dollar Bank's checking account has no monthly fee, ranking it excellent for anyone looking for a hassle-free account. For those who will need cash in a pinch, it is ideal because it charges no out-of-network ATM fees. Dollar Bank unfortunately does not reimburse out-of-network ATM fees, meaning you'll be required to find a Dollar Bank ATM or pay the fee.

Monthly Fee $0 National Average: $3.21
Non-network ATM Fee $0 National Average: $1.20
Overdraft Fee N/A National Average: $35.00

Dollar Bank does not have the best savings rate, which means you should consider looking elsewhere for banks that deliver more return for your money.
