Overview

Our Rating: 4.2/5 How we calculated this rating

Pinnacle Bank started in 1934 with headquarters in Elberton, Georgia. Pinnacle Bank has assets totaling $877 million and deposits totaling $765 million, ranking it as a medium-size bank. Pinnacle Bank does not have the customer service bells and whistles of other banks. It is a traditional brick-and-mortar bank, which means in-person service, in addition to its online and mobile apps. SmartAsset has rated Pinnacle Bank 4.2 out of 5 stars, suggesting it is a great bank that you should seriously consider. 

Pinnacle Bank provides customers with the complete selection of product offerings, which include savings accounts, checking accounts, money market accounts, CDs, IRAs, brokerage accounts, mortgage products and credit cards. It has a fair savings rate, which means you can find higher rates with other banks. A great, everyday account, the bank's standard checking account does not have a monthly maintenance fee. Opening accounts in one place is perfect when you want to get the largest interest rates on your money while retaining easy control over your funds.

Service Quality

Pinnacle Bank is a brick-and-mortar bank, with 16 total bank locations in Georgia. It also offers access to mobile and web apps for an easy mobile-banking experience. It does not have all-day customer service with representatives. You can get help during its hours, which are Monday through Thursday, 8:30 a.m. to 5:00 p.m. ET; Friday, 8:30 a.m. to 6:00 p.m. ET. 

Pinnacle Bank gets fairly high marks from customers for its mobile banking services: the Pinnacle Bank mobile app scored a 3.9 out of 5 (with 200 ratings on iOS and Android) compared to the national average of 3.8. Pinnacle Bank's mobile app lets you control your finances by checking account balances, sending and receiving funds and accessing customer service. Pinnacle Bank receives an exceptional consumer satisfaction rating based on comparatively few consumer complaints reported to the Consumer Financial Protection Bureau (CFPB), a government-sponsored consumer protection agency.
