Looking for a bank that travels with you?

A few weeks ago, we stopped off at a little hole-in-wall restaurant we had heard great things about on the way to Northwest Arkansas and saw that dreaded sign on the door…cash only.

I get it, restaurants are struggling and credit card processing fees just make it harder on them. You do what you gotta do to survive. Usually we’re a little more prepared, but this was not one of those days.


Luckily, there was an ATM close by, but of course it wasn’t our bank and there was going to be a withdrawal fee. Decision time….do we pay the fee and enjoy the delicious home cooking or ease on down the road to find something else? If you know us, you know we ate the $2 fee and a phenomenal, down home Arkansas breakfast.



We’re constantly on the go and needed a bank that could keep up with us! That’s why when our friends at Farmers Bank & Trust gave us a few suggestions, we were immediately blown away by all the options they had that were going to make life and travel so much easier. You can do almost everything directly through their website including opening a new bank account in 10 minutes or less using MyFarmers Open Anywhere, make mobile deposits and even apply for a mortgage!



Founded in Magnolia, Arkansas over 100 years ago ( #ArkansasProud ), Farmers Bank & Trust is fifth generation family-owned and they make us feel like family everytime we walk in the door. But don’t let the age of this bank fool you! With their state-of-the-art technologies and newly renovated branches, they are anything but stodgy.


They’re also a bank right at the heart of their customers and their community, offering personal touches like complimentary Starbucks coffee, custom school spirit debit cards printed on the spot and Paul’s favorite part, a fun Farmers Bank & Trust themed coconut raspberry snow cone when you open an account at their brand new Bryant branch.

And if you travel as much as we do, they have credit card and account options for cash back on purchases like gas, Airbnb’s and roadtrip snacks or if you find yourself needing to stop at an ATM while you’re on the road, they even have a checking account that offers ATM REFUNDS!! (dance break!) Do yourself a favor and take a few minutes to check out Farmers Bank & Trust. Whether you’re hitting the trails or heading out on the lake, this is a bank that travels with you.
