Overview

Established in 1912, The Savings Bank has $352 million in assets and $300 million in deposits, making it a small bank. The Savings Bank, whose headquarters are in Circleville, Ohio, 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 access to service representatives at a physical location, in addition to its online and mobile offerings. At a SmartAsset rating of 4.3 stars out of 5, The Savings Bank should be solidly in contention for your choice of bank. The Savings Bank provides customers with a full suite of product offerings, which include savings accounts, checking accounts, money market accounts, CDs, IRAs, mortgage products and credit cards. The Savings Bank has a fair savings rate compared to the average savings account. The bank's standard checking product carries a $2.00 monthly fee, which is acceptable compared to the average U.S. bank. Finding an institution with no-fee checking as well as a high interest rate savings account is the best bet for getting the highest income on your deposits while maintaining convenient access to your money.

The Savings Bank does not have the best savings rate, which means you should consider taking a look elsewhere for banks that deliver more return for your money.
