MidWestOne Bank charges its customers extremely low fees compared to the average U.S. bank. With no monthly fee, MidWestOne Bank's checking account is perfect for those who need an easy banking experience. For those who will need cash in a pinch, it is good because it has an out-of-network ATM fee of $1.00, which is good compared to the national average. Also, at $32.00, its overdraft fee is considerably lower than the national average.

MidWestOne Bank does not have the best savings rate, which means you should think about taking a look elsewhere for banks that deliver more return for your money.
