Overview

AimBank started in 1925 with headquarters located in Littlefield, Texas. AimBank owns $1 billion in assets along with $974 million in deposits, which makes it a medium-size bank. AimBank lacks premium access to support representatives, with no options for live chat or all-day service. It is a traditional brick-and-mortar bank with access to service representatives at a physical location, in addition to its online and mobile apps. On the whole, AimBank is a decent choice, but with better options out there, with a score of 3.6 out of 5 stars from our team. AimBank has a varied choice of banking products, which include savings accounts, checking accounts, money market accounts, CDs, IRAs, mortgage products and credit cards. It has a fair savings rate; you can find higher rates with other banks. The bank's standard checking account carries a monthly fee of $6.00, making it a rather expensive bank for checking. Institutions that offer free checking, in addition to a high interest rate savings account are your best bet for returning the most income on your deposits while maintaining easy access to your money.

AimBank does not have the best savings rate, which means you should consider other options 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. AimBank's CD rates are fair as compared against the national average.
