Overview

Western Commerce Bank was founded in 1961 with its headquarters in Carlsbad, New Mexico. It has $416 million in assets as well as $378 million in deposits, classifying it as a medium-size bank. Western Commerce Bank lacks premium access to support representatives, with no options for live chat or all-day service. It is a conventional brick-and-mortar bank with in-person service, in addition to its online and mobile offerings. Overall, Western Commerce Bank is a great bank that you should seriously consider, with a score of 4.4 out of 5 stars from the SmartAsset team. Western Commerce Bank provides customers with the complete selection of banking products, 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 standard checking account does not have a monthly fee. Institutions that offer free checking, in addition to a high savings APY are the best option for accruing the most income from your deposits while having convenient access to your money.
