Overview

Kitsap Bank first started operating in 1908 and its headquarters are located in Port Orchard, Washington. It has assets of $1 billion along with deposits totaling $995 million, which makes it a medium-size bank. Kitsap Bank lacks premium access to customer service, 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. Overall, Kitsap Bank is a good bank that gets the job done, with a score of 4.0 stars out of 5 from the SmartAsset team. Kitsap Bank provides customers with the complete slate of banking products, which include savings accounts, checking accounts, money market accounts, CDs, brokerage accounts and mortgage products. It has a fair savings rate; other popular banks have higher rates. The bank's standard checking account maintains a monthly fee of $5.00, which places it at the higher end of monthly fees. Finding a bank with free checking, in addition to a high savings APY is your best bet for returning the most income from your deposits alongside easy access to your money.

Fees

3.8
SmartAsset Average: 4.4

Kitsap Bank charges customers above-average fees compared to the national average. At $5.00 per month, Kitsap Bank is less than great for people who want a simple checking account. For those who visit the ATM often, Kitsap Bank is fair because it has an out-of-network ATM fee of $2.00, which is reasonable as compared against the national average. Additionally, it has an overdraft fee of $34.00, which is lower than the national average overdraft fee. Kitsap Bank unfortunately doesn't reimburse out-of-network ATM fees, meaning you'll be required to find a Kitsap Bank ATM or eat the ATM charge.
