Overview

Founded in 2006, American Momentum Bank has $1 billion in assets as well as $842 million in deposits, which makes the institution a medium-size bank. American Momentum Bank, whose headquarters are in College Station, Texas, 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. We gave the bank a 4.3 stars out of 5, suggesting American Momentum Bank is a solid contender in your bank search. American Momentum Bank has a full array of banking products, which include savings accounts, checking accounts, money market accounts, CDs and credit cards. It has a fair savings rate; other popular banks have higher rates. If you're looking for a checking account for everyday use, American Momentum Bank's ordinary checking account does not have a monthly fee. Banks that offer no-fee checking, in addition to a high interest rate savings account are your best bet for gaining the most income on your deposits alongside convenient access to your money.
