Expert review

You can get the $5 monthly fee waived each month you deposit at least $2,000. For this reason, the account could be better suited to customers planning to get their regular salary or wages paid into the account. Customers under 25 will get the monthly fee waived without having to meet the monthly deposit condition.

If you live outside of a major city, there may not be many Bank Australia branches near you. So keep this in mind if you’re looking for a bank account with easy branch access. However, you can make free cash withdrawals and deposits at any Australia Post store via Bank@Post.

Key features

$0 Monthly account keeping fees if you deposit at least $2,000

There is a $5 monthly account keeping fee charged to your account that is waived when you make external deposits of $2,000 or more. This fee is also waived for account holders under the age of 25 or those who have a combined total of at least $50,000 in loans, savings and investments with Bank Australia.

Can I still spend the $2,000 after I've deposited it?

Yes – after you've deposited the amount for the month, you can spend it and still take advantage of the waived monthly fee.
