Summary

Get all the benefits of a flexible everyday account with the added bonus of interest saved on your home loan with People’s Choice.

The Offset Account provides a solution to your daily banking needs, while working down the amount of interest paid on your home loan each month. This is a 100% offset, where every dollar in your account is counted towards the balance of your home loan before interest is applied. By reducing the amount of interest owed each month, more money goes towards the principal, allowing you to pay off the loan faster than you had hoped for.

Pros

  • Save on interest payments on your home loan
  • Linked Visa debit card
  • Phone, online and mobile banking

Cons

  • Need an eligible home loan
