Overview

AuburnBank first started operating in 1907 with headquarters located in Auburn, Alabama. It manages $854 million in assets as well as deposits totaling $759 million, which makes it a medium-size bank. AuburnBank 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 in-person service, in addition to its online and mobile apps. SmartAsset has rated the bank 3.6 stars out of 5, indicating that AuburnBank is an average bank that leaves room for improvement. AuburnBank has a diverse array of product offerings, which include savings accounts, checking accounts, money market accounts, CDs, IRAs, mortgage products and credit cards. AuburnBank has a fair savings rate; you can find higher rates with other banks. The bank's standard checking account maintains a $7.50 monthly fee, which places it at the higher end of monthly fees. Institutions that offer no-fee checking and a high interest rate savings account are your best bet for gaining the highest income from your deposits alongside convenient access to your funds.

AuburnBank has several deposit products including savings accounts, checking accounts, money market accounts and CDs that provide you with many options to manage your money. AuburnBank does not have the best savings rate, which means you should think about looking 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. AuburnBank's CD rates are fair in comparison to the national average.
