On the whole, Peoples National Bank is a respectable bank that deserves your consideration, with a score of 3.9 out of 5 stars from our team. Peoples National Bank offers the full selection of product offerings, including savings accounts, checking accounts, money market accounts, CDs, IRAs, mortgage products and credit cards.
