Overview

Started in 1913, Guaranty Bank & Trust has $2 billion in assets as well as $2 billion in deposits, making it a large bank. Guaranty Bank & Trust, whose headquarters are in Mount Pleasant, Texas, has above-average access to customer service with a live chat feature, which is helpful for those that work during typical customer service hours. 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 the bank a 4.5 stars out of 5, which means Guaranty Bank & Trust is an excellent bank that you should seriously consider. Guaranty Bank & Trust offers a full array of banking products, including savings accounts, checking accounts, money market accounts, CDs, IRAs, mortgage products and credit cards. Guaranty Bank & Trust has a fair savings rate compared to the average savings account. The bank's standard checking account has a monthly fee of $5.00, which places it at the higher end of monthly fees. Finding a checking account with no monthly fee as well as a savings account with a high APY at the same bank is the best option for getting the most income on your deposits while maintaining convenient access to your money.
