    I’m a current ANZ customer. What is the best term and rate for term deposit or any other type of account?

      JeniJune 18, 2019Staff

      Hi Serdal,

      Thank you for getting in touch with Finder.

      If you consider having an ANZ term deposit account, you may check out this page. Although you’d learn more on its features, I suggest that you still get in touch with ANZ since you’re an existing customer as they may give you better options.

      Since you’re looking around, kindly go through this page to compare your term deposit options. Once you’ve chosen the bank to invest with, please click on the green go to site button to be redirected to their official page and even start your online application.

      Please make sure that you’ve read the relevant T&Cs or PDS of the account to help consider whether the product is right for you.

      I hope this helps.

      Thank you and have a wonderful day!

      Hi Joe,

      Thanks for reaching out to finder.

      Once you have an ANZ Online Saver account, there is no need to renew the account. The account will just continue to operate along side your other accounts until such time you decide to close or terminate the account.

      I hope this helps.

    I am an ANZ customer and I want to save money for holiday like $25 per week.

    Which account is the best for this type of option

      Hi Aneeta,

      Thank you for your inquiry.

      Basically, you can go with a savings account for that purpose. If you’ve already decided to go with ANZ Online Saver, you may open an account by clicking the green “Open” button above.

      Meanwhile, you can also check your other online savings account options on this page. You can use the calculator above the table on that page to calculate your approximate interest earnings by indicating your initial and monthly deposits as well as term/period of investment.

    Can I renew the online saver after three months and receive the bonus interest rate again?

    • Avatarfinder Customer Care
      DeeAugust 31, 2016Staff

      Hi Sarah,

      Thanks for your question.

      Unfortunately, that is not possible. The bonus interest rate offer is only available to new ANZ Online Saver customers who:

      – Have not held an ANZ Online Saver account during the last 6 months
      – Have submitted an application online.

      After 3 months, the interest rate will revert to the standard variable rate.

    My current online saver account is due to expire next week. What is the interest rate if I renew again seeing I am not a new customer?

    • Avatarfinder Customer Care
      ClarizzaAugust 29, 2016Staff

      Hi Bev,

      Thanks for your question. The interest rate should revert to the base rate. For the ANZ Online Saver, the standard rate is 1.55% p.a.

    If a person opens a new savers account, they receive the bonus interest of 2.9%. Then after 3 months it goes down to 1.55%. What happens if the person closes that account after 3 months and then re-opens a new savers account 6 months later. Does that person receive the 2.9% bonus again?

    January – person opens new savers account and receives 2.9% bonus interest rate.
    April – 3 months later, savers account drops to 1.55%, person closes the savers account and transfers the money to access account in ANZ.
    October – opens a new savers account which is 6 months from April. What will be the interest rate at this time? Will it be 1.55% or 2.9% if that bonus rate is still available?

      If I transfer funds from my Online Saver to my Everyday Account for the purpose of obtaining a Bank Cheque to buy a car, can the Bank Chq be drawn immediately or is there a period of to wait till the funds clear

    • Avatarfinder Customer Care
      HaroldApril 26, 2017Staff

      Hi Ross,

      Thank you for your inquiry.

      You can transfer instantly between the ANZ online saver and the ANZ everyday account. So you can write a cheque for the car dealer in real time but it might take up to 3 days to process the cheque on the dealer’s end.

      I hope this information has helped.

      Hi Hwai,

      Thanks for your question.

      Please note that the interest rate on the ANZ online saver is variable. Should you open another ANZ online saver account in October, you’ll receive whatever the bonus rate is at the time.

      Hope this helps.

    Hi Shirley,

    Re: your comments “Unfortunately you can’t withdraw money from your ANZ online Saver account via electronic direct debit or periodical payment”

    I presume this has changed as explain on the ANZ website and have already been introduced? ANZ advised below as read on 13-03-16

    Accessibility. Linked to your ANZ Everyday Account, moving money in and out of your savings account is as easy as logging into your account and making the transfer.

      Hi Karl,

      Thanks for your question.

      Please note at the content on this page have been written by the staff of, not ANZ.

      What that section is saying is that if you’d like to access your ANZ online saver account, you need to do so via your linked bank account. For this reason, you won’t be able to set up electronic direct debit or periodical payments (you’ll need to do so via the linked bank account).
