What to know about 86 400

86 400 is a digital bank that received its full Australian Deposit-Taking Institution (ADI) licence from the banking regulator in July 2019. 86 400 is a digital smart bank that operates entirely via a mobile app, so there’s no desktop platform and no bank branches.

In January 2021, NAB announced its intention to acquire 86 400 to accelerate the growth of its digital bank, UBank, by combining UBank's established customer base and name with 86 400's technology and innovation capability. The sale was finalised May 2021.

86 400 currently offers a linked Pay and Save account only; however, it plans to launch a home loan soon. When you download the app, you’ll receive a Pay account and from there you can choose to open a Save account within the app and transfer some of your balance into the Save account.

86 400 Pay account

The 86 400 Pay account is what you’ll get when you initially download the app and create an 86 400 account. It’s an everyday transaction account with no account-keeping fees. You can receive payments into your Pay account and make transactions from the account online or in stores using the linked Visa Debit Card. You can also use the account to make transactions when travelling overseas.

86 400 Save account

Once you’ve got your 86 400 app and Pay account set up, you can add a Save account within the app. You can transfer money from your Pay account into the Save account, and the money in your Save account will earn interest.

The Save account offers a maximum variable rate of 1.2% p.a.on balances up to $50,000. You’ll get this bonus rate each month you transfer at least $1,000 into your 86 400 Pay account. When you don’t meet the monthly deposit requirement, the balance in your Save account will earn the standard variable rate of 0.1% p.a.

    86400 digital bank supported devices mentions only phones. Does this mean iPads and desktop computers (iMac specifically) are excluded?
