Overview

PBI Bank started in 1902 with headquarters in Louisville, Kentucky. PBI Bank manages assets of $967 million as well as $848 million in deposits, classifying it as a medium-size bank. PBI Bank lacks premium access to support representatives, with no options for live chat or all-day service. It is a traditional brick-and-mortar bank with in-person service, in addition to its online and mobile apps. We ranked PBI Bank at a 4.1 stars out of 5, which means it is a respectable bank that deserves your consideration. PBI Bank has a varied selection of banking products, which include savings accounts, checking accounts, money market accounts, CDs, IRAs, mortgage products and credit cards. It has a fair savings rate compared to the average savings account. If you're interested in stress-free personal checking, PBI Bank's standard checking account does not have a monthly fee. Finding a bank with no-fee checking, in addition to a high savings APY is the best bet for accruing the most income on your deposits while having convenient access to your funds.

Fees

4.3
SmartAsset Average: 4.4

PBI Bank typically has low fees compared to the average U.S. bank. With no monthly fee, PBI Bank's checking account is ideal for people who need an easy checking account. For those who often visit the ATM, it is fair because it charges an out-of-network ATM fee of $2.00, which is reasonable compared to the average U.S. bank. Additionally, PBI Bank has an overdraft fee of $32.00, which is lower than the national average. PBI Bank does not reimburse out-of-network ATM charges, meaning you'll need to search for a PBI Bank ATM or accept the fee.

Monthly Fee $0 National Average: $3.21
Non-network ATM Fee $2.00 National Average: $1.20
Overdraft Fee $32.00 National Average: $35.00

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