Overview

Founded in 1999, MVB Bank has $2 billion in assets and deposits totaling $1 billion, making it a large bank. MVB Bank, whose headquarters are in Fairmont, West Virginia, lacks premium access to support representatives, with no live chat or all-day service options available. It is a conventional brick-and-mortar bank with in-person service, in addition to its online and mobile apps. At a SmartAsset rating of 4.3 out of 5 stars, MVB Bank should be solidly in contention for your choice of bank. MVB Bank provides customers with a full selection of product offerings, including savings accounts, checking accounts, money market accounts, CDs, IRAs, brokerage accounts, mortgage products and credit cards. It has a fair savings rate; you can find higher rates with other banks. If you're looking for a checking account for everyday use, the bank's standard checking account does not carry a monthly maintenance charge. Locating a checking account with no monthly fee, in addition to a savings account with a high APY at the same bank is the best bet for accruing the most income from your deposits while having easy access to your money.

Fees

4.1
SmartAsset Average: 4.4

MVB Bank charges customers average fees compared to the average U.S. bank. MVB Bank's checking account has no monthly fee, rating it excellent for anyone looking for a simple account. For those who use cash often, it is not ideal because it charges an out-of-network ATM fee of $2.50, which is not great compared to the national average. MVB Bank doesn't reimburse out-of-network ATM charges, which means you will be required to find a MVB Bank ATM or pay the ATM charge.

Monthly Fee $0 National Average: $3.21
Non-network ATM Fee $2.50 National Average: $1.20
Overdraft Fee N/A National Average: $35.00

MVB 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. MVB 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. MVB Bank's CD rates are fair compared to the average U.S. bank.
