Overview

FirstBank was founded in 1963 with its headquarters in Lakewood, Colorado. FirstBank has assets of $18 billion and $16 billion in deposits, ranking it as a very large bank. FirstBank has above-average access to customer service with all-day support available, which is helpful for those that work during typical customer service hours. It is a conventional brick-and-mortar bank with in-person service, in addition to its online and mobile offerings. With a score of 4.6 out of 5 stars, FirstBank should be near the top of your list for your bank search. FirstBank offers an array banking products, which include savings accounts, checking accounts, money market accounts, IRAs and mortgage products. FirstBank has a fair savings rate compared to the average savings account. If you're interested in stress-free personal checking, the bank's standard checking does not have a monthly fee. Locating a checking account with no monthly fee as well as a savings account with a high interest rate at the same bank is your best bet for accruing the most income from your deposits while having convenient access to your funds.

FirstBank has typically extremely low fees compared to the average U.S. bank. With no monthly fee, FirstBank's checking account is ideal for people who want an easy checking account. FirstBank does not refund out-of-network ATM charges, meaning you'll need to find a FirstBank ATM or accept the ATM charge.

Monthly Fee $0 National Average: $3.21

FirstBank has several deposit products including savings accounts, checking accounts and money market accounts that provide you with many options to manage your money. FirstBank 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. FirstBank's CD rates are fair compared to the national average.
