Expert review

This is one of only a few transaction accounts that offer cashback on purchases. You can earn 1% cashback on tap and go purchases under $100, up to the value of $25 a month.

To get this cashback perk you need to deposit $2,000 per month. When you deposit $2,000 a month you’ll also get the $4 account keeping fee waived.

The cashback offer is a cool perk, but make sure you don’t fall into the trap of spending just to get the cashback.

Key features

You get 1% cash back on payWave purchases under $100

When you use your payWave enabled Visa debit card to make contactless payments of less than $100 you earn 1% cash back (capped at $25 per month), provided you deposit at least $2,000 in your account every month. The bank credits this cash back on a monthly basis.

Includes a linked Visa debit card

This account comes with a linked debit card that you can use at over 2.2 million locations worldwide, at ATMs and EFTPOS terminals alike. You can use your card to make unlimited withdrawals at rediATMs across Australia. You can also use your card details to make purchases and pay bills online and over the phone. This card does not attract any monthly or annual fees. You get to choose the card’s design.
