Overview

Started in 1961, Western Commerce Bank has $416 million in assets as well as $378 million in deposits, classifying it as a medium-size bank. Western Commerce Bank, whose headquarters are in Carlsbad, New Mexico, lacks premium access to customer service, with no options for live chat or all-day service. It is a conventional 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 4.4 stars out of 5, Western Commerce Bank should be solidly in contention for your choice of bank. Western Commerce Bank provides customers with the complete slate of product offerings, 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, Western Commerce Bank's ordinary checking account does not have a monthly fee. Obtaining a checking account with no monthly fee and a savings account with a high APY at the same bank is the best option for getting the most income on your deposits while having convenient access to your funds.
