Features

The AMP Bett3r Save account comes with the following features.

Maximum interest rate of 3.00% p.a.

The AMP Bett3r Account has a variable interest rate of 1.50% p.a. and a bonus rate of 1.50% p.a., meaning your balance can earn a maximum rate of 3.00% p.a. To achieve the bonus rate on your Save account, make sure you deposit $2,000 into the linked Pay account each month. Bonus interest is available on deposits up to $100,000, and anything over this will earn the standard variable rate.

No monthly account-keeping fee

There is no monthly account-keeping fee for the Save account, so every dollar goes towards meeting your savings goals.

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.

Linked Pay account

This account is part of the AMP Bett3r Account bundle, which includes a linked Pay account where your income will be deposited. The Pay account automatically sets aside the money you need for upcoming bills, so you never have to miss a bill again.

    Hi FInder, is the bonus interest rate only applicable to $100,000 of the total amount that you have in the Better Saver account? Thanks

      Hi Jim,

      Thank you for your comment.

      According to AMP website, yes, the bonus interest rate is available on balances up to $100,000.

      Additionally, you’ll need to deposit at least $2,000 into your Pay account each calendar month from an external source that is not another AMP account to be eligible for the bonus interest rate. This is on top of the standard interest for the account.

      Regards,
      Jhezelyn

    Regarding the bonus rate. As long as there is a minimum of $2000 being transferred into the monthly, will the maximum variable rate stay at 3%?

    We are starting to use the AMP Bett3r Accounts, however I just wanted to know how the Spend account works. Do funds need to be transferred into it? does a set amount need to be entered that is required? or is it automatically calculated?

      Hi Rosh,

      Thank you for your inquiry.

      The Spend Account is similar to an everyday transaction account. You can transfer (manually) the money in Save account to Pay or Spend and access it from there. Also, if there are funds that are not held in your Pay account (for bills) or in your Save account (for your savings goals) will be sent to your Spend account. By choosing to skip a bill or remove a bill, the funds will be automatically sent from your Pay account to your Spend account. You can do this if you need extra funds in your Spend account.

      Hope this helps.

      Cheers,
      May
