Overview

Established in 1925, AimBank has $1 billion in assets along with deposits totaling $974 million, making it a medium-size bank. AimBank, whose headquarters are in Littlefield, 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 in-person service, in addition to its online and mobile apps. Coming in at an average 3.6 stars out of 5, AimBank proves it is a bank with better alternatives. AimBank has a complete suite of product offerings, 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 product has a $6.00 monthly fee, making it a rather expensive bank for checking. Banks that offer no-fee checking as well as a high savings APY are your best bet for returning the most income on your deposits alongside convenient access to your funds.

AimBank has generally high fees in comparison to the average U.S. bank. AimBank's checking account has a monthly fee of $6.00, rating it fair for anyone looking for a simple account. AimBank unfortunately doesn't reimburse out-of-network ATM charges, which means you'll have to find an AimBank ATM or accept the fee.

AimBank offers several deposit products like savings accounts, checking accounts, money market accounts and CDs that provide you with many options to manage your money. AimBank 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. AimBank's CD rates are fair in comparison to other U.S. banks.
