Overview

Synergy Bank first started operating in 1999 with headquarters in Houma, Louisiana. Synergy Bank owns assets of $514 million as well as deposits totaling $458 million, which makes it a medium-size bank. Synergy 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 access to service representatives at a physical location, in addition to its online and mobile apps. We gave the bank a 4.5 stars out of 5, suggesting Synergy Bank is an exceptional bank that would be a perfect pick. Synergy Bank has a full suite of product offerings, which include savings accounts, checking accounts, money market accounts, CDs, IRAs, mortgage products and credit cards. Synergy Bank has a fair savings rate compared to the average savings account. If you're looking for a checking account for everyday use, Synergy Bank offers an option without a monthly fee. Banks that offer free checking and a high interest rate savings account are your best bet for returning the most income from your deposits while maintaining convenient access to your funds.

Given its noncompetitive savings rate, you should consider looking at the competition to open savings accounts.

Synergy Bank does not have the best savings rate, which means you should consider other options 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.
