About PNC Bank
Founded as Pittsburgh Trust and Savings Co., PNC Bank is one of the largest banks operating in the U.S. It offers a full suite of retail, commercial and small-business products. In 2008, it acquired the troubled Cleveland-based National City Corp. That transaction roughly doubled the bank’s size. As of 2018, PNC operated nearly 2,400 branches. The bank also provides free access to roughly 18,000 ATMs.
PNC stands out for its digital banking tools and offers competitive interest rates in some states. But if you don’t live in those select states, you may want to bank elsewhere for a better rate.
