SmartAsset Average: 4.4

On average, MidWestOne Bank charges customers extremely low fees in comparison to other U.S. banks. With no monthly fee, MidWestOne Bank's checking account is ideal for those who need a hassle-free banking experience. For those who routinely visit the ATM, it is good because it charges an out-of-network ATM fee of $1.00, which is good compared to the average U.S. bank. Also, it has an overdraft fee of $32.00, which is lower than the national average. MidWestOne Bank unfortunately does not refund out-of-network ATM charges, which means you'll be required to search for a MidWestOne Bank ATM or accept the fee.

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