Overview

Started in 1890, Legend Bank has assets totaling $640 million and $562 million in deposits, making the institution a medium-size bank. Legend Bank, whose headquarters are in Bowie, Texas, lacks premium access to customer service, with no options for live chat or all-day service. It is a traditional brick-and-mortar bank with access to service representatives at a physical location, in addition to its online and mobile offerings. Coming in at a commendable 4.3 out of 5 stars, Legend Bank proves it is a solid pick to be your bank. Legend Bank provides customers with the full slate of product offerings, including savings accounts, checking accounts, money market accounts, CDs, IRAs and mortgage products. Legend Bank has a fair savings rate; you can find higher rates with other banks. If you're interested in stress-free personal checking, Legend Bank offers an option without a maintenance or monthly fee. Locating a checking account with no monthly fee and a savings account with a high interest rate at the same bank is the best option for accruing the most income from your deposits while having convenient access to your money.

Legend Bank unfortunately does not reimburse out-of-network ATM fees, which means you'll have to find a Legend Bank ATM or accept the ATM charge.

Legend Bank has several deposit products like savings accounts, checking accounts, money market accounts and CDs that provide you with many options to manage your money. Legend Bank does not have the best savings rate, which means you should consider 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. Legend Bank's CD rates are fair in comparison to the average U.S. bank.
