Overview

Our Rating: 4.3/5 How we calculated this rating

MetaBank first started operating in 1954 with headquarters located in Sioux Falls, South Dakota. MetaBank manages assets totaling $5 billion as well as deposits totaling $4 billion, making it a large bank. MetaBank does not have the access to customer service other banks offer. It is a conventional brick-and-mortar bank, which means easier access to service representatives at a physical location, in addition to its online and mobile presence. At a SmartAsset rating of 4.3 out of 5 stars, MetaBank should be solidly in contention for your choice of bank. 

MetaBank has a full array of banking products, which include savings accounts, checking accounts, money market accounts, CDs and mortgage products. MetaBank has a fair savings rate, which means other popular banks have higher rates. Perfect for basic banking needs, MetaBank's ordinary checking account does not have a monthly fee. Why have checking and savings accounts with one bank? Fast transferring of funds between both accounts translates to better interest rates in your savings account with the ability to spend from your checking.

Service Quality

MetaBank is a brick-and-mortar bank, with 11 total bank locations in Iowa and South Dakota. It also offers access to mobile and web apps for straightforward access and banking on the go. It does not have all-day customer service with actual service representatives. You can get help during its hours, which are Monday through Friday, 8:00 a.m. to 5:00 p.m. CT. 

MetaBank's online and mobile banking platforms get positive scores from users: out of 200 ratings across Apple and Android platforms, the MetaBank mobile app rates a 4.1 out of 5 (compared to the national average of 3.8). MetaBank's mobile app allows you to manage your finances by reviewing account balances, sending and receiving money and reaching support representatives. MetaBank receives an exceptional consumer satisfaction rating due to comparatively few consumer complaints filed with the Consumer Financial Protection Bureau (CFPB), a government-backed consumer protection agency.
