What Banks Are Open on Sunday?

are banks open or closed on Sundays?
The vast majority of financial institutions, including banks and credit unions, are not open on Sunday. While many retail outlets are open on both Saturday and Sunday, banks and credit unions work a lot like many non-retail businesses that are open from Monday through Friday, but closed on the weekends. There are exceptions to this rule, although they are few and far between. Below you will find a list of the top banks which are open on Sunday, and those that are closed. If you know of any other banks that are open on Sunday, please leave a comment to let us know so we can add them to our list.

Even though most banks and credit unions are closed on Sunday, that doesn’t mean that you can’t do basic banking transactions. You have two options that will allow you to do many banking transactions even on Sunday. While the branch may not be open, the ATMs at the bank will be working, and they allow for many transaction to be done. The other option is logging in online and doing your banking through the bank’s or credit union’s website. You can’t do all types of banking from these two alternatives, but you can do most of the basic banking transactions.

It’s important to remember that if you do use an ATM or website, some transactions won’t fully post to your account until the next business day when the bank or credit union opens. This is usually not an issue, but something the keep in mind.

Why Aren’t Banks Open on Sunday?

The plain and simple reason that banks aren’t open on Sunday is that it’s not cost effective for them to be open. This is especially true now that ATMs and bank websites can handle many of the most common banking transactions that customers want. The one bank that does offer Sunday service, TD bank, uses this as a way to differentiate itself from all the other banks.

    I’m surprised that any banks or credit unions are open on Sunday. I don’t know of any in my area that do this. I do most of my banking online now or through the ATM, so I’m not sure how necessary this would be for me, but I could see how it could be convenient for a lot of people who have to work during the week and their only free time is on the weekend.
