Overview

Established in 1909, BankPlus has assets totaling $3 billion along with $2 billion in deposits, ranking it as a large bank. BankPlus, whose headquarters are in Belzoni, Mississippi, has above-average customer service access with a live chat feature, great for getting help during the work week. It is a traditional 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 4.3 stars out of 5, BankPlus should be solidly in contention for your choice of bank. BankPlus provides customers with the complete slate of banking products, which include savings accounts, checking accounts, money market accounts, CDs, brokerage accounts, mortgage products and credit cards. It has a fair savings rate; other popular banks have higher rates. If you're looking for a checking account for everyday use, BankPlus's standard checking account does not carry a monthly charge. Locating a checking account with no monthly fee as well as a savings account with a high APY at the same bank is the best option for gaining the most income from your deposits while maintaining convenient access to your funds.

BankPlus has several deposit products like savings accounts, checking accounts, money market accounts and CDs to give you many options to manage your money. BankPlus 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. CDs can be a terrific option to achieve higher returns, but there are limitations to accessing your money. BankPlus's CD rates are fair in comparison to the average U.S. bank.
