Only choose this bank if you want to be repeatedly inconveneinced. We have had debit cards cancelled with no warning leaving me straded away from home with no way to buy gas (I rarely carry cash), fees charged out of the blue (we did eventually get the money back), accounts with a balance cancelled for nonactivity even though they send a statement every month as though nothing was wrong, etc...
After having enough money in the bank to make the purchase, thay declined our request for a car loan. Of course we have NO credit (not bad) except our mortgage (which has never been late)since we choose to save for all our purchases instead of paying interest, but apparently they do not take into consideration the 8 years of loyalty our family has given them. They told us they could only give us the loan if we gave them the ENTIRE purchase price of the car to lock into one of their CD's (at the lowest rate in town) which would tie up our savings leaving us no choice but to get a loan if we had an emergency. (sound a bit fishy?)
Needless to say, this bank has put us through a lot. It takes a lot of time and work to change banks and that is the ONLY reason we have banked with them this long. Do yourself and choose a different bank.
I was going to purchase a gift card and went to a ARVEST bank branch in Bull Shoals, Ar. Requested that the address be added to the card account by the teller. The young teller stated that it CAN NOT be done, and a gift card has no room to attach a address. I related that it can be done, with the teller getting an attitude and TELLING me that it could not be done.. Went back to my car drove another 22 miles to the next ARVEST Bank branch, walked in and requested the teller to do the same.. She related that it can not be done.. I said it could be done and would bet one hundred dollars, she laughed and advised me to talk to the acting branch manager. I walked over to her desk, requested the same thing the address added to the account info. She told me it could not be done, again with an attitude.. I told her that it can be done, and maybe they could take a course on how to do it.
Left the bank, traveled another 37 miles, and walked into another ARVEST branch, walked up to the teller, requested that my address be added to my Gift card account.. Sure no problem. done in less than 3 min.s took me 1 hour driving time, three banks, and attitude from three tellers to get it right. I would leave this bank in a heart beat... my wife is good friend with a few of the tellers.
Attitude, not knowing what can be done on an account. and the I know more than you attitude or looking down at the know nothing customer.
