Hi Dimi,


You can earn the advertised interest rates on any amount from $1 – $249,000. You can deposit $40,000 and you’ll earn the advertised interest rate, plus an additional bonus rate for the first 4 months.


Hope this helps!

Who are the other approved financial institutions to whom you can transfer funds?

Hi Vera,


Thanks for reaching out to us.


Basically, most of the everyday transaction accounts can actually be used to send and receive money from a third-party account.


With the Heritage Bank Online Saver, it may not be possible to directly send money to a third-party bank account, so you might have to transfer funds from your online saver to your Heritage Bank account first and then the third party one.


Hope this helps.


Cheers,

Rench
