Our verdict

Earn bonus interest on your savings each month you make a single deposit of at least $10 and no withdrawals.

This account offers a small bonus rate of 4.25% each month you deposit $10 and make no withdrawals. This deposit requirement is really low and easy to meet compared to other sayings accounts, however the bonus rate is far less competitive also.

The withdrawal restrictions are also quite strict, compared to other accounts which offer a much better rate and have no withdrawal restrictions. That being said, these withdrawal restrictions could be just what you need to help you keep the money in the account and stick to your savings goal.

This account could be suited to you if you’ve got your transaction account or business bank account with ANZ and like the idea of keeping all your day-to-day finances in the one place. You can link your savings account to your everyday account and easily keep across your money in the ANZ app. But if you’re simply looking for a great interest rate, there are many accounts with higher rates on offer.

Pros

  • $0 ongoing fees
  • Bonus interest rate up to 4.25% p.a.
  • Small minimum monthly deposit requirement of just $10
  • Can be linked to any Australian everyday bank account

Cons

  • You can't make any withdrawals if you want to receive the bonus interest rate
  • Low base variable rate of 0.01% if account conditions aren't met

I have a progress saver account. If I withdraw say 20% from that account I understand that I lose interest on the remaining 80% for the next month. If I don’t withdraw any further sums then does interest start again on the remaining 80% one month later?

Hi John, that’s correct, you will be eligible to earn interest on your balance again the following month.

Hi, no you can’t. You’ll first need to transfer the money from your saver account to a linked ANZ transaction account with a debit card.

Is there a cap on the amount you can have in the progress saver for the interest?

Hi Col,


The interest rate applies on a daily balance of up to $250,000 or more. According to ANZ, a lower interest rate will apply across the entire ANZ Save balance if the daily balance is $250,000 or more.


Hope this helps!

My question is about PROGRESS SAVER how does it work.I started 19/04/23 I started of with $60 how much will I get end of this month May ??

Hi George,


The interest is calculated daily, and then paid monthly on the last business day of each month.


If you deposited $60 on the 19th of April, you would earn 3.76% on that amount (calculated daily), and the interest would be paid on the last day of May. We calculated the interest you would earn for April on $60 is around 6-7 cents.


Hope this helps!

I want to transfer my money in my Progress Saver to my normal ANZ account but internet banking does not let me.

I remember that there were specific dates for withdrawals (not sure) but I forgot when.

Is this the reason why I can’t transfer money? If so how do I check when I can withdraw money?

Hi Kamren,


I checked the website of ANZ, but it doesn’t specifically mention that there are specific times when you can make withdrawals. From what I know, you can withdraw any time you want.

There might be other reasons why you’re not able to make transfers and it has nothing to do with the time when you are making withdrawals.


I highly recommend you get in touch with ANZ directly.


Regards,

Alison
