Overview

Started in 1889, Classic Bank has $350 million in assets and deposits totaling $304 million, classifying it as a small bank. Classic Bank, whose headquarters are in Cameron, Texas, 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 access to service representatives at a physical location, in addition to its online and mobile apps. At a SmartAsset rating of 4.3 out of 5 stars, Classic Bank should be solidly in contention for your choice of bank. Classic Bank offers a mixture of product offerings, which include savings accounts, checking accounts, money market accounts, CDs, IRAs and credit cards. It has a fair savings rate; other popular banks have higher rates. If you're interested in stress-free personal checking, the bank's standard checking does not carry a monthly charge. Banks that offer free checking and a high interest rate savings account are your best option for gaining the most income from your deposits while maintaining convenient access to your money.
