Anchor Bank, whose headquarters are in Aberdeen, Washington, 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 offerings. Coming in at a commendable 4.3 stars out of 5, Anchor Bank is a great bank that you should seriously consider. Anchor Bank provides customers with a complete array of banking products, which include savings accounts, checking accounts, money market accounts, CDs, IRAs, mortgage products and credit cards.
