Overview

Started in 1934, SouthTrust Bank has $378 million in assets and $336 million in deposits, which makes the institution a small bank. SouthTrust Bank, whose headquarters are in George West, Texas, 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. We gave the bank a 4.3 stars out of 5, which means SouthTrust Bank is a great bank that you should seriously consider. SouthTrust Bank has a full array of banking products, including savings accounts, checking accounts, money market accounts, CDs, IRAs and mortgage products. It has a fair savings rate; you can find higher rates with other banks. If you're interested in stress-free personal checking, SouthTrust Bank offers an option without a monthly fee. Locating an institution with free checking and a high interest rate savings account is the best bet for returning the most income on your deposits alongside convenient access to your funds.

SouthTrust Bank offers several deposit products like savings accounts, checking accounts, money market accounts and CDs to give you many options to manage your money. SouthTrust 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. SouthTrust Bank's CD rates are fair compared to other U.S. banks.
