      Hi Oscar,

      Thank you for reaching out to Finder.

      Though I am not certain of your special request to have a savings account set up for 35 days, you may contact AMP directly to check if this is allowed as well as the interest percentage they could provide you. Hope this helps!

      Cheers,

    HI folks, thanks for the info. This saver account needs to be linked to an AMP transaction or everyday account. Does this second account have any fees, and are there any transaction charges associated with moving funds between the accounts? Thanks again.

      Hi Frank,

      Thank you for contacting Finder.

      An AMP transaction or everyday account does not have any fees when transferring funds between accounts. You can move funds using your app without incurring any charges. To compare available everyday or transaction accounts from AMP, click the TRANSACTION ACCOUNTS tab from this page so you can review which one to go to.

      Hope this helps.

      Kind Regards,

    Hi, with the saver account, how will I be able to transfer large amounts, example $500,000 if there is an online limit?

    • finder Customer Care
      JhezelynDecember 3, 2018Staff

      Hello Jan,

      Thank you for your comment.

      Upon checking, the Internet Banking withdrawal limits are up to $25,000 per online registered account per day. But if you would like to transfer a large amount, you would need to get in touch with the bank and they should be able to help you.

    Does AMP Saver account have any monthly deposit requirements to earn the interest rate of 2.10% and do you still earn interest if you make a withdrawal?

    • finder Customer Care
      JhezelynJune 21, 2018Staff

      Hi Emily,

      Thank you for your comment.

      If you open a new AMP Saver Account and you have not held an AMP Saver Account before, you’ll earn a bonus of 0.45% pa on top of the AMP Saver Account Standard Rate during the Bonus Period. There’s no need to have a monthly deposit and make any withdrawals to earn the bonus interest. The Bonus Period is the first four months from the date your account opened. After the 4-month period, it will revert back to the standard interest rate.

      Regards,
      Jhezelyn

    My money will always find a home with BEST rates. I currently have a little less than $5,000,000 that may need a home on the 01st August, 2018. My problem is that I’ll be in Vancouver Canada. I want to know if I can effect a transfer of this large amount to your institution assuming of course you rates out perform others and is there any form filling- signatures I need to sign in advance should I pull the trigger on a transfer 01st August?
