Overview

Founded in 1999, Synergy Bank has $514 million in assets and deposits totaling $458 million, which makes it a medium-size bank. Synergy Bank, whose headquarters are in Houma, Louisiana, lacks premium access to customer service, 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 offerings. We gave the bank a 4.5 stars out of 5, indicating that Synergy Bank is a superb bank that you should seriously consider. Synergy Bank offers a full suite of banking products, including savings accounts, checking accounts, money market accounts, CDs, IRAs, mortgage products and credit cards. It has a fair savings rate; you can find higher rates with other banks. If you're looking for a checking account for everyday use, Synergy Bank's most basic checking account does not have a monthly maintenance fee. Obtaining a checking account with no monthly fee as well as a savings account with a high interest rate at the same institution is the best option for getting the most income on your deposits while having convenient access to your funds.

Its CD rates are 1.60% and 2.20% for the one-year and five-year term lengths, respectively, while its highest-yielding money market account has an APY of 0.75%. Given Synergy Bank's poor savings rate, you should think about taking a look at other banks for savings accounts.

Fees

5.0
SmartAsset Average: 4.4

Synergy Bank generally has extremely low fees compared to other U.S. banks. With no monthly fee, Synergy Bank is perfect for those who want a basic checking account. Synergy Bank unfortunately does not reimburse out-of-network ATM charges, meaning you will need to find a Synergy Bank ATM or accept the withdrawal fee.

Monthly Fee $0 National Average: $3.21
Non-network ATM Fee N/A National Average: $1.20
Overdraft Fee N/A National Average: $35.00

Synergy Bank has several deposit products like savings accounts, checking accounts, money market accounts and CDs to give you many options to manage your money. Synergy Bank does not have the best savings rate, which means you should consider 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. Synergy Bank's CD rates are fair in comparison to the national average.
