Overall institution rating

The bottom line:

The NBKC Everything Account combines checking and savings features in one account. NBKC also offers certificates of deposit and money market accounts with decent interest rates.

Though NBKC’s ATM network is large, as a primarily online bank its branch network is very small, with only four available in the Kansas City, Missouri, area. NBKC’s customer service phone line is available Monday through Friday from 8 a.m. to 7 p.m. CST.

NBKC offers a couple of online services for financial management, including features called Savings Goals and Financial Snapshot, both of which help customers manage their money.

Best for: Online banking customers who want the convenience of free checking, high-yield savings, and budgeting tools all in one account and won’t need support on weekends or in person.
