BancorpSouth Bank was founded in 1876 and has its headquarters in Tupelo, Mississippi. It manages $15 billion in assets as well as $12 billion in deposits, which makes it a very large bank. BancorpSouth Bank 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. With an average 3.5 out of 5 stars, BancorpSouth Bank proves it is a bank with better alternatives. BancorpSouth Bank has a full selection of product offerings, including savings accounts, checking accounts, money market accounts, CDs, IRAs, brokerage accounts, mortgage products and credit cards. It has a fair savings rate compared to the average savings account. The bank's standard checking account carries a monthly fee of $5.00, although banks sometimes have requirements that allow you to waive the fee. Institutions that offer free checking and a high interest rate savings account are your best bet for returning the highest income from your deposits while maintaining easy access to your funds.
