Features of the AMP Bank Basic Package Rate Loan

Basic variable rate home loans provide a few features that can give you flexibility on your home loan. These features include:

  • Additional repayments. If you come into extra money you may want to make additional repayments towards the loan. This can help reduce the total amount owing on your loan as well as the interest that is charged to the loan.
  • Redraw facility. If you make these additional payments you can take advantage of the AMP Bank Basic Variable Rate Loan free redraw facility which allows you to access the funds that you've made in additional repayments at any time. The AMP Bank Basic Variable Rate Loan allows you to make as many redraws as you like.
  • Salary depositing. By taking advantage of the free additional payments and the free redraw facility, you can have your wage deposited into the loan account to reduce the interest that is charged. If you deposit your wage into the loan account and use a credit card to make your purchases throughout the month you can let the money sit in the loan account to reduce the interest charged. When you are about to be charged fees on your credit card you can then pay off it off with your wages.
  • 100% offset facility. The AMP Bank Basic Variable Rate Loan allows you to use the savings you have accumulated against the loan to reduce the amount of interest charged. By reducing the interest that is charged to the AMP Bank Basic Variable Rate Loan, you can save money and pay off the loan faster.

    what is the difference between a amp essential home loan and basic variable home loan as they seem to have similar features

      Hi Parvej,

      Thank you for contacting we are a financial comparison website and general information service we are not directly affiliated with any of the lenders we feature on our website.

      The AMP Essential Home Loan is AMP’s basic or no frills variable home loan that doesn’t have any of some of the features found as part of the AMP Basic Package Home Loan. Some of these features include a 100% offset account and a fixed rate option being available with the AMP Basic Package Home Loan.

      I hope this helps clarify the differences.
