Tennessee State Bank, whose headquarters are in Pigeon Forge, Tennessee, lacks premium access to support representatives, with no live chat or all-day service options available. It is a conventional brick-and-mortar bank with in-person service, in addition to its online and mobile apps. With an average 3.6 out of 5 stars, Tennessee State Bank proves it is an acceptable bank choice, but may leave you wanting more. Tennessee State Bank has the complete selection of product offerings, including savings accounts, checking accounts, money market accounts, CDs, IRAs, mortgage products and credit cards.
