This account takes the hassle out of budgeting. The account automatically moves your money between the three linked accounts to ensure you always have enough for upcoming bills while also meeting your savings goals.
AMP Bett3r includes a Spend, Pay and Save account.
You'll receive your salary into the Pay account. The account will keep enough money in your Pay account for upcoming bills and regular payments, and it will automatically move money into your Save account each month to help you meet your savings goals. The Spend account is the money that's not held for bills and not sent to your savings, so you know it's safe to spend.
Set savings goals
Set up personal savings goals, whether you're saving for a car, a holiday or simply for a rainy day, and the Save account will help you meet them. It will automatically take money from your Pay account to help meet your savings goals, and you can track your progress.
Earn up to 1% on your Save account
You could earn up to 1% on the portion of your balance that's sitting in the Save account each month you meet the bonus interest rate conditions. To achieve the bonus rate on your Save account, you need to deposit $2,000 into the linked Pay account each month from a source that is not another AMP Bank account. Bonus interest is available on deposits up to $100,000. Anything over this will earn the standard variable rate of 0.25% p.a.
Earn 0.25% on your Pay account
The money that is sitting in your Pay account for bills and upcoming payments will earn 0.25% interest. There are no deposit conditions to earn this interest, so you'll earn this even if you don't deposit 2,000 a month. This means that the money you set aside for your bills will earn interest while it's waiting in your account.
No interest paid on the Spend account
The portion of your balance that is sitting in your Spend account doesn't earn any interest. The Spend account acts like a transaction account and is ideal for day-to-day spending.
Linked Visa debit card
This account comes with a linked Visa debit card that's attached to your Spend account. You can use this card to make purchases in-store or online wherever Visa is accepted around the world.
You get unlimited, free transactions via mobile and Internet banking. This includes $0 ATM fees when you use rediATMs.
$6 monthly account-keeping fee
There is a $6 monthly account-keeping fee for the Pay account. However, if you deposit $2,000 into the account each month, this fee is waived.
Mobile app available
You can access this account via the AMP mobile banking app for iPhones and Android devices, where you can move money between your linked accounts on the go.
