Overview

Started in 1978, Republic Bank has $394 million in assets as well as $318 million in deposits, which makes it a small bank. Republic Bank, whose headquarters are in Duluth, Minnesota, 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 access to service representatives at a physical location, in addition to its online and mobile apps. On the whole, Republic Bank is a respectable bank that gets the job done, with a rating of 3.9 stars out of 5 from our experts. Republic Bank has a variety of product offerings, which include savings accounts, checking accounts, money market accounts, CDs, IRAs, mortgage products and credit cards. It has a fair savings rate; other popular banks have higher rates. If you're interested in stress-free personal checking, Republic Bank offers an option without a maintenance or monthly fee. Banks that offer no-fee checking, in addition to a high savings APY are the best option for returning the highest income from your deposits while having easy access to your money.

Republic Bank typically has extremely low fees in comparison to the average U.S. bank.

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