Well, the BofA branch in Shell Knob is now going to be an Arvest branch. Our current bank here (not BofA) gives us free checking, no ATM fees, free bill pay, free checks--we do autodeposit.

If you bank at Arvest, what is your opinion? According to their web site, you have to have the 3rd tier checking w/monthly fee before you get free billpay. No mention of autodeposit.

Default My take...

Well I see nobody from Arvest has answered you, but I'll throw in my 2 cents.
(Banks...cents...)
The banking world has changed so dramatically in the last few years! On the financing end of things in my world, Arvest is one of the very best banks to deal with. Closings are timely and seamless, the clients tell me they're awesome to work with. Title companies love them for their streamlined settlements. The other institution you mentioned is known as THE worst. Can I get a groan all around?
So I hope the change is a good one, and that they give their regular deposit customers the kind of service that the loan department is famous for.

I usually agree with your posts Lake Junkie but I don't share your assessment of Arvest.

I live in Missouri but found a used pickup at the Dodge dealership in Berryville. While going through the financing process I chose to go with the bank in Missouri I had been with for over 50 years. A few days later I got a letter of finance rejection from an Arvest Bank in Arkansas (don't remember the town, might have been Berryvlle) but knowing I had impeckable credit, I wrote the Arvest bank asking information on why the rejection. I never got a reply.

I have no fondest for any Arvest bank. JMPO

Have an account at B of A. at one of the branches you mentioned, and have not heard about Arvest buying them out yet. Interesting. Thanks for the information.

Oh I know that reputation -- they hold our mortgage out here in California -- seems no matter who your original loan was funded through, it manages to get to them for servicing.

I am more interesting in normal banking services and not having to pay to walk in a bank and make a deposit, use an ATM without a horrendous fee, billpay, etc. When back here visiting family I had sticker shock at some of the ATM fees being charged to get cash, so I want a bank with many branches/atms.

Wikipedia reports "It has been reported by many sources including Forbes that Arvest Bank is owned and controlled by the Walton family of Walmart fame, although Arvest is operated separately from the famous retail chain. Sam Walton's son Jim runs the company. In 2003, Jim, his brother and his mother owned a combined stake of 96.14% of the company."

The Walton's get enough of my money thru the local Wal-Mart and Sam's Club.
