Key features

Bonus interest rate of 0.9% p.a. for the first 4 months

The Australian Unity Easy Saver offers a bonus interest rate of 0.9% p.a. in addition to the standard variable rate for an introductory period of 4 months. There are no special terms and conditions that need to be met to earn this bonus interest, all you need to do is open an account.

Then it reverts to 0.75% p.a.

Once the 4-month introductory period ends, the account earns the standard variable interest rate. The interest rate is variable, which means it could change according to the movements of the RBA cash rate.

    Is the 10% of AU Membership only for new membership, or does it apply to existing AU members?

It is not to be used in conjunction with any other offer or discount and also excludes Overseas Visitors Cover.

    Hi Ben,

    Thanks for your question.

    There are no transaction fees for this account, however the account is opened with a transaction account which does have a monthly fee of $5 or free if at least $1000 is deposited into this transaction account per month. As a savings account, you can’t withdraw the money direct from this account however you can transfer your funds into the linked transaction account which allows you to withdraw your cash. The interest is calculated daily and paid monthly.

    Regards,
    Clarizza

    Could you please advise how often the interest is paid?
    Is there any early termination fees, or account closure fees?

    Hi,

    I would like to know if your bank charges monthly account service fee? And if yes, how much would this be and what does it actually cover?

    Thank you

    I believe Aus. Unity Easy Saver is same as Big Sky which pays 3 2 percent. Is this correct?

      Hi Craig,

      Thanks for your question.

      Did you mean 3.2% interest? Australian Unity Easy Saver currently comes with a maximum variable interest rate of 2.90%. Big Sky has a number of savings account products so I’m unsure which one you are comparing the rate to. However, I can see that their Target Saver account comes with a 1.45% interest rate.
