Overview

BancCentral started in 1913 with headquarters located in Alva, Oklahoma. It has $491 million in assets as well as $445 million in deposits, making it a medium-size bank. BancCentral lacks premium access to customer service, with no live chat or all-day service options available. 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. At a SmartAsset rating of 4.6 out of 5 stars, BancCentral should be near the top of your list for your bank search. BancCentral has a complete array of product offerings, including savings accounts, checking accounts, money market accounts, CDs, mortgage products and credit cards. BancCentral has a fair savings rate; you can find higher rates with other banks. If you're looking for a checking account for everyday use, BancCentral's most basic checking account does not carry a monthly maintenance charge. Locating a checking account with no monthly fee as well as a savings account with a high interest rate at the same bank is the best option for getting the most income on your deposits while having convenient access to your funds.

BancCentral typically has extremely low fees in comparison to other U.S. banks. Its checking account has no monthly fee, making it excellent for anyone looking for a simple account. BancCentral does not refund out-of-network ATM charges, meaning you will have to find a BancCentral ATM or eat the fee.

BancCentral has several deposit products including savings accounts, checking accounts, money market accounts and CDs that provide you with many options to manage your money. BancCentral 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. BancCentral's CD rates are fair compared to other U.S. banks.
