Plumas Bank, whose headquarters are in Quincy, California, lacks premium access to customer service, with no options for live chat or all-day service.

With a commendable 4 out of 5 stars, Plumas Bank proves it is a respectable bank that gets the job done. Plumas Bank has a complete array of banking products, which include savings accounts, checking accounts, money market accounts, CDs, IRAs and credit cards. It has a fair savings rate; other popular banks have higher rates. If you're interested in stress-free personal checking, Plumas Bank offers an option without a maintenance or monthly fee.

Plumas Bank does not have the best savings rate, which means you should consider taking a look elsewhere for banks that deliver more return for your money.
