Overview

Founded in 1890, Texas Star Bank has assets totaling $390 million as well as deposits totaling $342 million, which makes the institution a small bank. Texas Star Bank, whose headquarters are in Van Alstyne, Texas, lacks premium access to customer service, 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. SmartAsset has rated Texas Star Bank 4.2 out of 5 stars, which means it is a solid pick to be your bank. Texas Star Bank offers a full choice of banking products, including savings accounts, checking accounts, money market accounts, CDs and IRAs. It has a fair savings rate; other popular banks have higher rates. If you're interested in stress-free personal checking, the bank's most basic checking account does not carry a monthly maintenance charge. Finding a checking account with no monthly fee as well as a savings account with a high interest rate at the same bank is your best option for returning the most income from your deposits while having easy access to your money.
