Our verdict

Earn bonus interest each month you grow your net balance by at least $200 (excluding interest) and make no more than one withdrawal.

This account offers a maximum bonus rate of 5.05% on your balance. This is an ongoing bonus rate too, so it’s not going to expire after a few months after opening the account.

To earn this rate you need to grow your net balance (excluding interest earned) by $200 each month. This means that if you withdraw money from the account, you need to replace that money plus add another $200 during the month to earn the bonus interest.

You can make no more than one withdrawal during the month in order to be eligible for bonus interest. This account is designed to help you save and motivate you to leave the money in the account earning interest. If you’d prefer the flexibility of being able to access your savings whenever you need to you could consider a savings account with no withdrawal restrictions, although you might need to settle for a lower interest rate.

Pros

  • Maximum interest rate of 5.05% p.a.
  • No monthly account keeping fees
  • The monthly growth requirement of $200 to earn bonus interest is lower than what's required with some other savings accounts available

Cons

  • Standard interest rate of just 0.35% if account conditions are not met

Is the Suncorp Growth Saver Account covered by the covered by the Government Guarantee Scheme up to $250,000?

Hi Fred,


Thank you for your comment.


Upon checking, Financial Claims Scheme (FCS) under the Banking Act 1959 applies to the deposit accounts you have with Suncorp. Under the FCS, certain deposits are protected up to a limit of $250,000 for each account holder at any bank, building society, credit union or other authorised deposit-taking institution.


Yes, Suncorp Growth Saver Account is covered by FCS.

Can you have joint names on this saver?

Hi Josh,


Thanks for reaching out to Finder.


Yes. Suncorp Growth Saver account can be opened by joint applicants, 11 years of age or older.


The joint account will be set up as “any to operate” which means that either account holder is authorised to withdraw funds from the account and complete transactions on behalf of both account holders.


You can also contact Suncorp at any time to change your account permissions.


I hope this helps.


Cheers,

Charisse

In order to qualify for the bonus interest does it mean that although you are allowed to make one withdrawal in a month, you need to replace at least that withdrawal amount plus the $200 dollars deposit by the end of the last day of the next month? In other words, the account must never fall below the the original deposit amount plus $200 each month, for the bonus interest to apply?

Hi Stan,


Thank you for getting in touch with Finder.


That’s right. So long that you grow your balance by more than $200 (excluding interest) and make no or just one withdrawal each month then you meet the bonus interest criteria.


I hope this helps.


Thank you and have a wonderful day!


Cheers,

Jeni

Hi Kamilla,


Thanks for reaching out to Finder.


No, you are not required to open or link another Suncorp account like an Everyday account to be able to open a Suncorp Growth Saver Account.
