Overview

Mega Bank first started operating in 2008 with headquarters located in San Gabriel, California. Mega Bank manages $352 million in assets as well as $279 million in deposits, ranking it as a small bank. Mega Bank lacks premium access to support representatives, with no options for live chat or all-day service. It is a conventional brick-and-mortar bank with access to service representatives at a physical location, in addition to its online and mobile apps. At a SmartAsset rating of 4.1 out of 5 stars, Mega Bank should be solidly in contention for your choice of bank. Mega Bank has a diversity of banking products, which include savings accounts, checking accounts, money market accounts and credit cards. It has a fair savings rate compared to the average savings account. If you're interested in stress-free personal checking, Mega Bank's standard checking account does not have a monthly fee. Obtaining a checking account with no monthly fee, in addition to a savings account with a high interest rate at the same bank is your best bet for getting the most income from your deposits alongside convenient access to your money.

Mega Bank offers several deposit products including savings accounts, checking accounts and money market accounts that provide you with many options to manage your money. Mega Bank does not have the best savings rate, which means you should think about looking 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. Mega Bank's CD rates are fair compared to other U.S. banks.
