Overview

Founded in 1962, Commercial Bank has $526 million in assets and $418 million in deposits, which makes the institution a medium-size bank. Commercial Bank, whose headquarters are in Alma, Michigan, lacks premium access to support representatives, with no live chat or all-day service options available. It is a conventional brick-and-mortar bank with in-person service, in addition to its online and mobile offerings. On the whole, Commercial Bank is a fair bank that you should look closer at to see if it fits your needs, with a score of 3.4 stars out of 5 from the SmartAsset team. Commercial Bank has multiple product offerings, which include savings accounts, checking accounts, CDs, IRAs and mortgage products. Commercial Bank has a fair savings rate; other popular banks have higher rates. The bank's standard checking product maintains a monthly fee of $6.00, although banks sometimes have requirements that allow you to waive the fee. Locating a checking account with no monthly fee and a savings account with a high interest rate at the same institution is the best option for returning the most income from your deposits alongside convenient access to your money.

Commercial Bank has several deposit products like savings accounts, checking accounts and CDs to give you many options to manage your money. Commercial 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. Commercial Bank's CD rates are fair compared to the average U.S. bank.
