Overview

Bank of Commerce was founded in 1904 and its headquarters are located in Greenwood, Mississippi. Bank of Commerce has $386 million in assets and deposits totaling $322 million, making it a small bank. Bank of Commerce 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 in-person service, in addition to its online and mobile offerings. Coming in at a poor 3.3 out of 5 stars, Bank of Commerce proves it is a fair bank that does not stack up to some of the other banks. Bank of Commerce has a complete selection of banking products, which include savings accounts, checking accounts, money market accounts, CDs, IRAs and mortgage products. It has a fair savings rate; you can find higher rates with other banks. The bank's standard checking account maintains a monthly fee of $8.50, which ranks on the higher end of monthly fees. Institutions that offer free checking, in addition to a high savings APY are the best bet for getting the most income on your deposits alongside convenient access to your money.

Bank of Commerce does not have the best savings rate, which means you should think about taking a look elsewhere for banks that deliver more return for your money.
