Overview

Prosperity Bank was founded in 1949 with headquarters located in El Campo, Texas. It has $23 billion in assets as well as deposits totaling $18 billion, which makes it a very large bank. Prosperity Bank lacks premium access to customer service, with no live chat or all-day service options available. It is a traditional brick-and-mortar bank with in-person service, in addition to its online and mobile apps. SmartAsset experts rated the bank 4.4 out of 5 stars, which means Prosperity Bank is a great choice and should warrant serious consideration. Prosperity Bank provides customers with a varied selection of banking products, including savings accounts, checking accounts, money market accounts, CDs, IRAs, mortgage products and credit cards. It has a fair savings rate compared to the average savings account. If you're looking for a checking account for everyday use, Prosperity Bank offers an option without a monthly fee. Finding a checking account with no monthly fee as well as a savings account with a high interest rate at the same institution is your best option for accruing the most income on your deposits alongside easy access to your money.

Prosperity Bank offers several deposit products including savings accounts, checking accounts, money market accounts and CDs that provide you with many options to manage your money. Prosperity 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. CDs can be a terrific option to achieve higher returns, but there are limitations to accessing your money. Prosperity Bank's CD rates are fair compared to the national average.
