If you withdraw on the incentive savings account, do you lose the bonus interest just for that month you withdraw on, do you start getting the bonus interest once it’s earnt the $50 a month again

Hi Jen,


Yes the criteria resets every month, so you will be eligible to earn the bonus interest again the following month.

Hi Barry,


You can open multiple accounts. On the 2nd question you may need to ask the bank as this is quite detailed. Please note that interest is calculated daily but paid monthly.

Hi, could the interest rate change on a monthly basis or daily at any time?

Is there a maximum balance for the incentive saver account?

Hi, the interest rate is variable meaning it can change at any time. No, there is no maximum balance limit.

Hi, yes it’s compound interest calculated daily and paid monthly. To receive the full bonus rate you need to grow your balance by $50 each month (excluding interest you receive).
