Overview

Started in 2002, First Commerce Bank has assets totaling $355 million and $321 million in deposits, making it a small bank. First Commerce Bank, whose headquarters are in Lewisburg, Tennessee, 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 in-person service, in addition to its online and mobile apps. Coming in at a commendable 4.3 stars out of 5, First Commerce Bank is a great bank that you should seriously consider. First Commerce Bank offers a full selection of banking products, including savings accounts, checking accounts, money market accounts, CDs, IRAs, mortgage products and credit cards. First Commerce Bank has a fair savings rate; other popular banks have higher rates. The bank's standard checking product carries a $5.00 monthly fee, although banks sometimes have requirements that allow you to waive the fee. 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 funds.
