Overview

Sonabank started in 2005 and its headquarters are located in Tappahannock, Virginia. It has assets of $3 billion along with $2 billion in deposits, which makes it a large bank. Sonabank has above-average customer service access with a live chat feature, which is helpful for those that work during typical customer service hours. It is a traditional brick-and-mortar bank with in-person service, in addition to its online and mobile offerings. On the whole, Sonabank is a great choice and should warrant serious consideration, with a score of 4.2 out of 5 stars from our experts. Sonabank provides customers with a complete array of banking products, including savings accounts, checking accounts, money market accounts, CDs, IRAs, mortgage products and credit cards. Sonabank has a fair savings rate; other popular banks have higher rates. If you're interested in stress-free personal checking, Sonabank's ordinary checking account does not have a monthly fee. Using a bank with no-fee checking as well as a high savings APY is your best option for returning the most income from your deposits while having convenient access to your funds.

Sonabank has typically extremely low fees in comparison to the average U.S. bank. With no monthly fee, Sonabank's checking account is ideal for those who need a hassle-free banking experience. Sonabank doesn't refund out-of-network ATM charges, meaning you will have to locate a Sonabank ATM or pay the ATM charge.

Monthly Fee $0 National Average: $3.21

Sonabank's online and mobile banking services receive poor feedback from customers. Out of 110 ratings on both Apple and Android platforms, the Sonabank mobile app is scored at 3.4 out of 5 (compared to the national average of 3.8). You can utilize Sonabank's mobile app to control your bank accounts by reviewing current statements, sending and receiving funds as well as reaching support representatives.

Sonabank has several deposit products including savings accounts, checking accounts, money market accounts and CDs to give you many options to manage your money. Sonabank 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. Sonabank's CD rates are fair in comparison to the average U.S. bank.
