Overview

Our Rating: 4.2/5 How we calculated this rating

Established in 1977, Central National Bank has assets totaling $863 million and $735 million in deposits, making it a medium-size bank. Central National Bank, whose headquarters are in Waco, Texas, does not have the customer service bells and whistles of other banks. It is a traditional brick-and-mortar bank, which means in-person service, in addition to its online and mobile apps. We gave the bank a 4.2 stars out of 5, which means Central National Bank is a solid pick to be your bank. 

Central National Bank provides customers with a varied selection of banking products, which include savings accounts, checking accounts, CDs, mortgage products and credit cards. It offers an average savings account interest rate, suitable if you need a worthier place to hold your money than a checking account. The bank's standard checking product has a $4.00 monthly fee, which is not too bad compared to the national average. Why use checking and savings accounts with one bank? Quick transferring of funds between both accounts means you can still get higher interest rates in your savings account but still use your funds from your checking.

Service Quality

Central National Bank is a brick-and-mortar bank, with four total bank locations in Texas. With mobile and web apps, Central National Bank makes account access easy, even on the go.  

Central National Bank gets high marks from users for its mobile banking services: the Central National Bank mobile app scored a 4.9 out of 5 (with 17 reviews on iOS and Android) compared to the national average of 3.8. Central National Bank's mobile app allows you to control your funds by looking at monthly statements, transferring money as well as accessing customer service. Central National Bank receives a superb consumer satisfaction score due to relatively few consumer complaints registered with the Consumer Financial Protection Bureau (CFPB), a government financial agency that protects consumers in the financial sector.
