Our verdict

Earn up to 5% p.a. when you make no withdrawals and at least 1 deposit by the second last banking day of the month.

This account offers a variable bonus interest rate of 5% p.a. each month you make no withdrawals and at least 1 deposit throughout the month. There’s no set amount you need to deposit which makes this account quite flexible, however the strict withdrawal restrictions could make it difficult to earn the bonus rate. If you do make a withdrawal or fail to deposit any month in the month, you’ll earn the standard rate of just 0.35%.

In terms of the interest on offer, you can get a much better rate elsewhere while also being able to make withdrawals when you need to.

However, if you’ve got another NAB banking product and want to open a savings account with the same bank to easily track your finances in the one place, this could be a good option. Just make sure you only deposit what you don’t plan to spend, otherwise you’ll earn next to no interest if you do make a withdrawal. If you find yourself regularly dipping into your savings for impulse purchases, the strict withdrawal conditions could actually motivate you to keep your savings in place.

Pros

  • $0 monthly account fees
  • Make 1 deposit of any amount during the month to earn bonus interest

Cons

  • To earn bonus interest, you can't make any withdrawals
  • Interest rate is lower than other savings accounts in the market

I am a NAB customer holding different types of accounts and products with them. I’ve been living overseas the last few years, and want to open a reward saver account so i can transfer savings from my existing classic account. I’m not sure why i need to be an Australian resident to apply, when I still have all these existing NAB accounts open. Even if i did earn interest on the account, I would still declare this through my AUS annual tax return, so i find it difficult to understand why i can’t open the account while i’m living abroad.

What day of the month is the interest applied? First? Last?

Hi Sam,


Thanks for getting in touch. The NAB Reward Savers account’s interest rate is calculated daily and paid monthly. It’ll be calculated at the total rate if you make at least one deposit before the second last banking day of that month and no withdrawals during that month, or, if you haven’t, you’ll still get your variable base rate.


Hope this was helpful. Don’t hesitate to message us back if you have more questions.


Best,

Nikki
