Overview

Our Rating: 4.3/5 How we calculated this rating

Century Bank started in 1910 and its headquarters are located in Santa Fe, New Mexico. It has $827 million in assets as well as deposits totaling $675 million, ranking it as a medium-size bank. Century Bank does not have the access to customer service other banks offer. It is a traditional brick-and-mortar bank, which means easier access to service representatives at a physical location, in addition to its online and mobile presence. With a commendable 4.3 out of 5 stars, Century Bank is a great choice and should warrant serious consideration. 

Century Bank provides customers with a diverse array of product offerings, which include savings accounts, checking accounts, money market accounts, CDs, IRAs and mortgage products. Century Bank has a fair savings rate compared to the average savings account. If you're looking for a checking account for everyday use, Century Bank's most basic checking does not carry a monthly fee. Why use checking and savings accounts with one bank? Convenient transferring between both accounts means you can still get better interest rates in your savings account but still access your funds from your checking.

Service Quality

Century Bank is a brick-and-mortar bank, with nine total bank locations in New Mexico. It also offers access to mobile and web apps for a straightforward mobile-banking experience. It does not offer all-day customer service with actual service representatives. You can get help during its hours, which are Monday through Friday, 8:00 a.m. to 5:00 p.m. MT. 

Century Bank's online and mobile banking platforms receive positive feedback from customers: the Century Bank mobile app has been given a 4.1 out of 5 (out of 47 customer reviews on iOS and Android) compared to the national average of 3.8. You can access Century Bank's mobile app to manage your funds by looking at monthly statements, sending and receiving money as well as reaching customer service. Century Bank gets an excellent consumer satisfaction rating based on comparatively few complaints brought to the Consumer Financial Protection Bureau (CFPB), a government-backed consumer protection agency.
