Arvest Bank is pleased to announce it will host a grand opening event for its ATM with Live Teller in Golden City on Tuesday, Oct. 15.

Festivities will include a cookout from 11 a.m.-2 p.m. and a ribbon-cutting ceremony. The ATM with Live Teller, which allows customers to have face-to-face communication and conduct transactions with Arvest tellers via a video screen, is located at 403 Main Street.

Additionally, Arvest will offer concierge service from 11 a.m.-5 p.m. for customers who may need help or are simply interested in learning how the ATM with Live Teller functions. Customers can choose whether they want to take advantage of the video teller capabilities or use the machine like a traditional ATM.

The video tellers are able to help customers complete more types of transactions than a traditional ATM, including larger withdrawal amounts, specific account inquiries, deposits of 30 items at a time, and complete check cashing. The ATM with Live Teller is available from 7 a.m.-8 p.m. Monday through Friday and 8 a.m.-5 p.m. on Saturday. Standard ATM capabilities are available 24 hours a day.

“Our ATM with Live Teller has been up and running for some time now, and the response from our customers has been overwhelmingly positive,” said Chad Evans, president for Arvest Bank in the Joplin region. “One of our goals in introducing this technology here was to give our customers personal service during extended banking hours, as well as 24/7 access as a full-service ATM. This technology is the first of its kind for Arvest in Missouri, and we are excited to introduce it in Golden City.”

Arvest Selected as ‘Best-In-State Banks’ in Three States

Thursday, June 27 at 09:00 AM
Category: Arvest Community News

Arvest Bank has been recognized by Forbes magazine among its “Best-In-State Banks” for the second consecutive year. Arvest received the recognition for its banks in Arkansas, Missouri and Oklahoma.

This is the second time Forbes and its market research partner, Statista, have produced the lists. Arvest was recognized on the Arkansas list in 2018. Additionally, earlier this year, Forbes and Statista named Arvest one of the “World’s Best Banks.”

“We appreciate those who once again rated Arvest so highly, and it is especially rewarding to be recognized in two additional states this year,” Arvest president and CEO Kevin Sabin said. “Our associates continue to focus on serving our customers to the best of their abilities, and we believe awards like these are a byproduct of that commitment.”

The “Best-In-State Banks” lists were selected based on an independent survey of more than 25,000 U.S. citizens across all 50 states. Participants were asked to name and rate all banks with which they have – or previously had – a checking account. The ratings were based on five categories: Trust, Terms & Conditions, Branch Services, Digital Services and Financial Advice.

Each category contained a battery of questions, and a bank’s total score was based on a formula weighting recommendation, general satisfaction and the scoring of the battery of questions. Across the entire United States, a total of 149 unique banks were awarded with the “Best-In-State Banks” designation.

Arvest Provides More than 2.4 Million Meals

Tuesday, June 18 at 09:00 AM
Category: Arvest News

Arvest Bank launched its annual Million Meals initiative to fight hunger in the four-state region the bank serves two months ago. Today, the bank announced that with the help of customers and community members, it has exceeded the campaign goal by raising a record total of 2.4 million meals in the fight against hunger. This is the second consecutive year for a record total of meals raised.

Launched in 2011, Arvest’s Million Meals campaigns have raised a nine-year total of 16,068,971 meals, which includes more than $2.8 million in funds given directly to the bank’s dozens of local food partners.

This year’s campaign total of 2,468,873 meals was made possible through donations from the bank, Arvest associates, customers and community members through fundraisers, events and nonperishable food drives in all Arvest branches throughout April and May. With summer here, the success of the campaign is especially meaningful because many schoolchildren will be without the meals they ordinarily receive at school.

The bank’s decision to provide one million meals was based on the fact hunger is an issue in every community it serves. In 2017, 11.8 percent of American households were food-insecure, meaning they had difficulty at some time during the year providing enough food for all their members due to a lack of resources.
