Bank7 Review

Bank7 offers a variety of personal and business accounts. Checking, savings, and money market accounts are available for personal deposit or businesses. They offer business and personal CDs, credit cards, and lending options. These accounts can only be opened in a branch location.

Bank7 offers online personal deposit accounts. These include checking, savings, money market accounts, and CDs. The term length of CDs offered are 24-month and 36-month CDs. Only one online money market and savings account per person can be opened. Customers can open more than one CD and checking account.

The Bank7 online accounts offer competitive interest rates. Those rates are much higher than the Bank7 rates for in branch accounts. To earn the most competitive rate, you must have a set amount in the account. Those accounts range from $100 to $10,000, depending on the account.

Some Bank7 online and in branch accounts have low opening required amounts. The savings accounts and Bank7 checking account only require $100 to open. The Super7 checking requires $1,000. The 6-month, 12-month, and 18-month CD terms also require $1,000 to open.

All Bank7 in branch checking accounts have a $1 monthly fee. This fee is easy to waive. Electronic statements, a direct deposit, or keeping a set balance waives the fee. The online Bank7 accounts have a monthly fee of $15. Waive the online fees by receiving electronic statements and keeping a set balance. That amount is $100 for high rate online savings and $5,000 for the online MMA.

Some CDs and one checking account have a high opening required amount. The 24-month, 36-month, and 48-month CDs require $10,000 to open and earn interest. The Premier7 checking account also requires $10,000 to open. The online money market account requires $5,000 to open.

Specific interest rates for in-branch accounts are not listed on the Bank7 website. To get account rates, call a bank representative. The interest rates for the savings account are tiered. To earn the best interest on the accounts requires a set account balance.

The online accounts at Bank7 offer the most competitive interest rates. These online accounts are only for new customers to Bank7. You can open these accounts online. Everything for the account is online.

Rising Bank Review

The interest rates for Rising Bank accounts are competitive. The rates are competitive with other online accounts. They are much higher than typical bank rates. The rates are not tiered. Any amount above the required opening amount earns competitive interest rates.

The Rising Bank high yield savings account and the regular CDs have low opening amounts. The regular CDs are available in one, two, and three-year CDs. These CDs and the savings account each only requires $1,000 to open.

There are no monthly fees on the high yield savings account. This account is free. To earn interest, you must keep $1,000 in the account. The CDs only have a fee if you withdraw money before the CD reaches maturity.

Rising Bank offers two Rising CDs. These come in 18-month and 36-month terms. Each of these CDs requires $25,000 to open. During the CD term if interest rates increase you can increase the rate on your CD. The 18-month CD allows for one rate increase; the 36-month allows two rate increases. When you increase the rate of the CD, you can also deposit more money into the CD.

Rising Bank has limited types of accounts available. They offer a high yield savings account and CDs. The CD terms range from one year to three-year terms. There are not a wide variety of term lengths available through Rising Bank. They offer regular CDs, one jumbo CD, and two Rising CDs. Rising Bank does not offer a money market account or checking accounts. No business accounts are currently available.

The Rising CDs and the jumbo CD have high opening amounts. The Rising CD terms each require $25,000 to open. The jumbo CD has one term length, and it requires $100,000 to open the account. You must keep these amounts in the CDs to earn interest.

The interest rates for the Rising Bank high yield savings account are not fixed. Rising Bank may change the rate you earn on your account at any time. The bank does not have to notify you if the rates change. Interest credits to your account every month for the savings account and every three months for CDs. If you close your accounts before interest credits, you will not receive the earned interest.

Rising Bank offers limited ways to contact customer service. Reach a representative through phone, mail, or email. They are open Monday through Friday. The Rising Bank website says their customer service representatives offer personalized help. The ways to contact someone are limited though.
