Minster Bank was founded in 1914 with its headquarters in Minster, Ohio. Minster Bank has assets of $476 million and $416 million in deposits, ranking it as a medium-size bank. Minster Bank lacks premium access to customer service, with no live chat or all-day service options available. It is a conventional brick-and-mortar bank with access to service representatives at a physical location, in addition to its online and mobile offerings. On the whole, Minster Bank is a solid contender in your bank search, with a rating of 4.3 out of 5 stars from the SmartAsset team. Minster Bank provides customers with a varied selection of product offerings, including savings accounts, checking accounts, money market accounts, CDs, IRAs, brokerage accounts, mortgage products and credit cards. Minster Bank has a fair savings rate; other popular banks have higher rates. If you're looking for a checking account for everyday use, Minster Bank's ordinary checking account does not have a monthly fee. Locating an institution with no-fee checking, in addition to a high interest rate savings account is the best option for returning the highest income from your deposits alongside convenient access to your funds.
