Overview

Prosperity Bank first started operating in 1949 with its headquarters in El Campo, Texas. Prosperity Bank manages $23 billion in assets and deposits totaling $18 billion, which makes it a very large bank. Prosperity 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 Prosperity Bank at a 4.4 out of 5 stars, which means it is a solid contender in your bank search. Prosperity Bank has a diverse array of banking products, which include savings accounts, checking accounts, money market accounts, CDs, IRAs, mortgage products and credit cards. Prosperity Bank has a fair savings rate compared to the average savings account. If you're interested in stress-free personal checking, Prosperity Bank's ordinary checking account does not have a monthly fee. Finding an institution with free checking and a high interest rate savings account is your best bet for returning the highest income on your deposits while having convenient access to your funds.

Prosperity 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.
