Overview

Founded in 1984, Commerce Bank has assets totaling $25 billion and deposits totaling $21 billion, ranking it as a very large bank. Commerce Bank, whose headquarters are in Kansas City, Missouri, lacks premium access to support representatives, 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 3.7 out of 5 stars, Commerce Bank should be near the middle of the pack in your search for a bank. Commerce Bank offers a mixture of banking products, which include savings accounts, checking accounts, money market accounts, CDs, IRAs, mortgage products and credit cards. It has a fair savings rate; other popular banks have higher rates. The bank's standard checking product maintains a $8.00 monthly fee, making it a rather pricey bank for checking. Institutions that offer no-fee checking as well as a high savings APY are the best bet for getting the most income from your deposits alongside easy access to your money.

Commerce Bank has typically high fees in comparison to other U.S. banks. At $8.00/month, Commerce Bank's checking account is less than the best product for people who want an easy checking account. Commerce Bank does not refund out-of-network ATM charges, meaning you'll be required to find a Commerce Bank ATM or eat the cost of withdrawal.

Monthly Fee $8.00 National Average: $3.21
Non-network ATM Fee N/A National Average: $1.20

Commerce Bank does not have the best savings rate, which means you should think about taking a look elsewhere 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. Commerce Bank's CD rates are fair compared to the average U.S. bank.
