Overview

Started in 1889, Classic Bank has assets totaling $350 million along with deposits totaling $304 million, which makes it 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 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 4.3 out of 5 stars, Classic Bank should be solidly in contention for your choice of bank. Classic Bank offers a full suite of banking products, which include savings accounts, checking accounts, money market accounts, CDs, IRAs and credit cards. Classic Bank has a fair savings rate compared to the average savings account. If you're interested in stress-free personal checking, Classic Bank's standard checking account does not have a monthly fee. Finding a checking account with no monthly fee as well as a savings account with a high APY at the same institution is the best bet for getting the most income from your deposits while maintaining convenient access to your money.
