Hi Sue,


Thanks for your comment. It’s good to know that you are looking for ways to save money. If you are interested in applying for the Bankwest Smart eSaver, carefully review the eligibility criteria of the loan before applying to increase your chances of approval. Read up on the terms and conditions and product disclosure statement and contact the bank should you need any clarifications about the policy.


You can find the Bankwest’s requirements when you click the tab above that says How To Apply. When you are ready, visit their main website to start the application.


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


Best,

Nikki
