Expert review

This account offers a small bonus rate of 0.25% 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.

Key features

Earn up to 0.25% p.a. when you deposit at least $10 per month and make no withdrawals

You receive a bonus interest rate of 0.24% p.a. if you deposit at least $10 by the last business day of the month and there are no withdrawals, charges or fees processed on the account in that same month. If you intend to make this deposit towards the end of the month, note that it could take a few business days to process the transaction.

Base interest rate of 0.01% p.a.

The standard interest rate on balances is 0.01% p.a. This applies if you can't meet the requirements outlined above, so make sure you can meet the account requirements before opening this account.


How to apply

If you like the idea of bonus interest just for making a small monthly deposit then you can apply for the ANZ Progress Saver online in less than 10 minutes.

    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

      Hi Dianne,

      Thanks for your comment and I hope you are doing well. You may certainly open multiple Progress Saver Accounts if desired and you are also able to earn the same bonus interest and do the same process in the application.

      Just to reiterate: For Progress Saver, it is a great account for customers who wish to have strict savings plan/goals. With this account, you could earn up to 1.60% pa, providing that there is no withdrawal and a minimum deposit of $10 per month.

      For further restriction on this account, you can opt in to not have an Access Card, and restrict your internet banking access on this account so that you can’t transfer the funds out or withdraw using the card. If you need to withdraw, you will need to visit the branch.
      Base rate is 0.01% pa, and bonus rate is 1.59%pa.

      Hope this helps and feel free to reach out to us again for further assistance.

      Best,

    My husband and I have a progress saver for my son who turns 18 in a couple of weeks. We are wanting to use some of the money in his progress saver before he turns 18 to buy him a car. What are the processes for withdrawing from this account? We only have paper based statements, there is no card associated with this account.
    thanks

      Hi Cathy,

      Thanks for getting in touch! If you have a Progress Saver without a card attached and would like to make a withdrawal, it is possible to do so at any ANZ Branch or if the account is linked to Internet Banking, transferring the funds out. Generally, you’ll just need to bring in a photo ID so ANZ can verify that it is your account.

      Hope this helps and happy birthday to your son!

      Hi Caty,

      Thanks for your inquiry.

      When checked in the terms and conditions of this account – as it is an account with variable rates, bonus and base rates are variable and subject to change. The rates changed last June 26th 2019. You can see the change on the website directly or notice will be sent usually in the statement’s inserts.

      Hope this helps! For any further questions, feel free to reach out to us again, we’re here to help.

      Best,
      Nikki
