Overview

Started in 1961, Coulee Bank has $356 million in assets along with $288 million in deposits, which makes it a small bank. Coulee Bank, whose headquarters are in La Crosse, Wisconsin, lacks premium access to customer service, with no options for live chat or all-day service. 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. We gave Coulee Bank a 3.7 stars out of 5, indicating that it is a decent bank that leaves room for improvement. Coulee Bank provides customers with a full suite 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 compared to the average savings account. Finding a checking account with no monthly fee and a savings account with a high interest rate at the same institution is your best bet for getting the most income from your deposits while maintaining convenient access to your funds.

Coulee Bank has several deposit products including savings accounts, checking accounts, money market accounts and CDs to give you many options to manage your money. Coulee Bank does not have the best savings rate, which means you should think about looking 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. Coulee Bank's CD rates are fair compared to the national average.
