BlackRidgeBANK was founded in 2007 and its headquarters are located in Fargo, North Dakota. BlackRidgeBANK handles $447 million in assets and $393 million in deposits, classifying it as a medium-size bank. BlackRidgeBANK lacks premium access to customer service, with no live chat or all-day service options available. 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. With a score of 4 out of 5 stars, BlackRidgeBANK should be near the middle of the pack in your search for a bank. BlackRidgeBANK has a choice of product offerings, which include savings accounts, checking accounts, CDs, IRAs, mortgage products and credit cards. BlackRidgeBANK has a fair savings rate compared to the average savings account. If you're looking for a checking account for everyday use, BlackRidgeBANK offers an option without a monthly fee. Finding a bank with free checking and a high savings APY is the best option for returning the most income from your deposits alongside easy access to your money.

BlackRidgeBANK 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. BlackRidgeBANK's CD rates are fair in comparison to the national average.
