Established in 1974, Premier Bank has $724 million in assets along with deposits totaling $649 million, which makes the institution a medium-size bank. Premier Bank, whose headquarters are in Maplewood, Minnesota, lacks premium access to support representatives, with no options for live chat or all-day service. It is a conventional brick-and-mortar bank with access to service representatives at a physical location, in addition to its online and mobile apps. Overall, Premier Bank is a solid pick to be your bank, with a rating of 4.2 out of 5 stars from our team. Premier Bank provides customers with a diverse array of banking products, which include savings accounts, checking accounts, money market accounts, CDs, IRAs, mortgage products and credit cards. Premier Bank has a fair savings rate; other popular banks have higher rates. If you're looking for a checking account for everyday use, Premier Bank's standard checking account does not have a monthly fee. Finding a checking account with no monthly fee, in addition to a savings account with a high interest rate at the same bank is your best bet for getting the most income on your deposits alongside convenient access to your funds.

Premier Bank generally has extremely low fees in comparison to the average U.S. bank. With no monthly fee, Premier Bank's checking account is perfect for people who need an easy banking experience. Premier Bank unfortunately does not refund out-of-network ATM fees, meaning you'll need to find a Premier Bank ATM or pay the fee.

Premier Bank has several deposit products like savings accounts, checking accounts, money market accounts and CDs to give you many options to manage your money. Premier Bank does not have the best savings rate, which means you should think about taking a look 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. Premier Bank's CD rates are fair in comparison to the national average.
