Overview

Vista Bank started in 1912 with its headquarters in Ralls, Texas. Vista Bank owns $604 million in assets along with deposits totaling $528 million, making it a medium-size bank. Vista Bank lacks premium access to support representatives, 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. At a SmartAsset rating of 4.3 out of 5 stars, Vista Bank should be solidly in contention for your choice of bank. Vista Bank offers a diverse array of product offerings, including savings accounts, checking accounts, money market accounts, CDs and IRAs. It has a fair savings rate; other popular banks have higher rates. If you're interested in stress-free personal checking, Vista Bank offers an option without a maintenance or monthly fee. Locating a bank with no-fee checking, in addition to a high savings APY is your best option for accruing the most income on your deposits while maintaining convenient access to your funds.

Vista 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. Vista Bank's CD rates are fair in comparison to other U.S. banks.
