Expert review

If you then combine the money you save with a home loan from Bank First, you will receive $600 cashback and will also be able to take advantage of a waived home loan establishment fee.

Key features

Bonus interest

A base variable interest rate applies to the account at all times. However, in months when you deposit at least $100 into your account and don't make any withdrawals, a generous bonus interest rate applies. This allows disciplined savers to build a bigger balance faster and save towards their first home.

Interest calculated daily

The interest paid on your First Home Bonus Saver Account is calculated daily and credited to your account balance on a monthly basis.
