Accounts offered by ING

ING Orange Everyday bank account

The Orange Everyday transaction account comes with a Visa debit card that you can use in Australia and overseas, at ATMs and EFTPOS terminals as well as online. You can use all ATMs across Australia and globally for free when you deposit more than $1,000 in your account each month, plus make 5+ card purchases a month. This account does not attract any account-keeping fees and offers free access to BPAY.

ING Savings Maximiser

The ING Savings Maximiser account gives you the ability to earn bonus interest every month. Earn 5.5% p.a. when you link to an ING Orange Everyday account and meet the following criteria each month: deposit at least $1,000, make 5+ card purchases and grow your Savings Maximiser balance (excluding interest earned).

Savings Accelerator

This tiered savings account offers higher interest rates for higher balances. You don’t have to pay any ongoing account-keeping fees and there is no minimum withdrawal amount or fixed term. You can access money in your account via online, mobile and phone banking. This would suit you if you've got a larger savings balance and don't want to commit to the ongoing account conditions required with the Savings Maximiser.

ING term deposit

The minimum deposit you require to open an ING term deposit is $10,000 and the term period can vary from 90 days to 2 years. You can earn a loyalty bonus if you renew the term deposit and don’t withdraw money before the new term deposit reaches maturity. This would suit you if you're looking to lock away your deposit and earn a fixed rate in return.

Different ways to bank with ING

ING has no bank branches and no ATMs in Australia, but it does offer a few different ways to do your banking.

Bank@Post

If you need to deposit cash into your account you can do this at a participating Australia Post shop using Bank@Post. It's free to deposit cash into your account this way.

ING Internet and mobile banking

You can use ING's Internet banking platform or mobile app to track account balances, pay bills and other direct debits, make BPAY payments, transfer funds between accounts, activate new cards or place existing ones on hold and to schedule payments.

The ING mobile app offers a savings round-up tool called Everyday Round Up, which allows you to round up your transactions to the nearest dollar and add the remainder into your savings. You can search your transactions by keyword, date or amount and make real-time transfers with your own PayID.

Contactless payment options

ING offers Apple Pay, Google Pay and Samsung Pay to customers with an Orange Everyday debit card. This means you can use your phone (or any compatible device) to make contactless payments for everyday items, instead of using your physical debit card.

Pros

  • No ATM or foreign transaction fees. When the account conditions are met, you can access free ATM withdrawals around the globe and have any foreign transaction fees charged by ING waived.

    Does ING offer investment home loans?

      AvatarFinder
      JoshuaNovember 11, 2019Finder

      Hi Superman,

      Thanks for getting in touch with Finder. I hope all is well with you. 😃

      Yes, you can learn more about ING’s investment home loans. On the page, you will see a table that compares ING home loans. You can use the built-in filters to only view investment loans. You can then click on the “Enquire now” button to learn more.

      Please make sure that you’ve read the relevant T&Cs or PDS of the loan products before making a decision. Moreover, check the eligibility requirements as well and consider whether the product is right for you.

      Alternatively, you can speak to a mortgage broker, a professional who compares and helps you apply for home loans on your behalf. A good mortgage broker will give you personalised service all the way through to settlement.

      I hope this helps. Should you have further questions, please don’t hesitate to reach out again.

      Have a wonderful day!

      Cheers,
      Joshua

    Hi, I am on student visa at the moment. Is it possible for me to open a savings account with ING?

      AvatarFinder
      JeniApril 14, 2019Finder

      Hi Kasia,

      Thank you for getting in touch with Finder.

      I’m afraid that you may not apply for an ING account since you’re on a student Visa. Basically, ING accepts applicants who are Australian residents for taxation purposes. You may refer to our list of bank accounts for international students. You can use our comparison table to help you find the lender that suits you. When you are ready, press the ‘Go to site’ button to apply.

      Please ensure that you meet all the eligibility criteria and read through the details of the needed requirements as well as the relevant Product Disclosure Statements/Terms and Conditions when comparing your options before making a decision on whether it is right for you. You can also contact the provider if you have specific questions.

      I hope this helps.

      Thank you and have a wonderful day!

      Cheers,
      Jeni

    Are there any penalties if you are unable to deposit a $1000 per month with the Orange Everyday account?

      AvatarFinder
      DeeMarch 25, 2018Finder

      Hi Grego,

      Thanks for your question.

      There are no penalties if you can’t make a deposit of at least $1,000 per month on your ING Orange Everyday Transaction Account. However, you may incur the following fees which are free to those who meet the deposit requirement:

      Overseas ATM Withdrawal Fee – $2.50
      – ATM Fees by third party ATM operators
      – International transaction fee – (2.5% of the amount)

      I hope this helps.

      Cheers,
      Anndy
