Hi James,


As rates are changing constantly at the moment in the rising rate environment, your best bet is to contact CBA directly to find out their current rates as of the day you wish to invest your funds in a term deposit.


As of June 27, 2023, the rate for $200,000 for 12 months was 4.25%.


Hope this helps!

Hi Team,

The CBA increased the interest rate for home loans on 5/5/23 by the full RBA rate of 0.25%.

When will this be reflected in your term deposit accounts, most of which are lower than the current RBA cash rate of 3.85% whilst my mortgage is 7.5%+

Hi John, you’ve reached Finder, not CBA. We’re a free comparison service and are not associated in any way with any bank, so can’t comment on the interest rate decisions by banks. We’d suggest you get in touch with CBA directly about this.

Hi there,


If I put in $5,000.00 for 12 months for a TD, could I add money to the TD during the period?


Thanks,

Hi, once you open a term deposit it’s locked for the duration of the term length – you can’t take money out of it or put extra money into it.

Hi there,


If I put in 50,000 over 3 years what return would I get after the 3 years

Hi Bradley,

Using the current CBA term deposit rate for 3 years which is 4.00% p.a., you’d earn $6005.48 in interest after 3 years.

Thanks,

Alison

Hi Rashpal,


Thanks for your comment and I hope you are doing well.


When you deposit $5,000.00 on the Commonwealth Bank Term Deposit for 4 months, you get a 1.10% interest rate. This means, you will earn $55.00 which gives you a total of $5,055.00 at the end of the 4th month. Note that the interest is paid at maturity only.


As a friendly reminder, review the eligibility criteria, fees, interest rates, and terms & conditions of the chosen account before applying. You may also contact the bank should you have any questions about their product.


Best,

Nikki
