Expert review

There’s no account keeping fees or monthly deposit conditions to meet with account, so you don't need to stress about depositing a certain amount of money each month. The account comes with a free Visa Debit Card which you can use to access your money in a variety of ways.

You can use the Visa Debit Card to make unlimited free transactions in Australia, including free ATM withdrawals at Westpac, NAB, ANZ and CBA ATMs. You can also make free withdrawals at more than 50,000 international ATMs though the Global ATM Alliance which Bank of Melbourne is a part of. If you use an international ATM outside of the alliance you’ll be charged a $5 withdrawal fee. There’s also an international transaction fee of 3% when using the card overseas. So keep this in mind if you travel a lot or you regularly shop online on overseas sites.

This account offers Apple Pay so you can make purchases with your phone or wearable device instead of your debit card. It also offers Cardless Cash, which is a unique feature only offered by a few banks that allows you to withdraw money from eligible ATMs using your phone. This is really handy if you’re out and about and need cash but you’ve left your wallet at home.

SPECIAL OFFER: $50 CASH BONUS

Receive a $50 cash bonus when you open a new Bank of Melbourne Complete Freedom account online by 19 January 2021 and deposit $500 within 30 days of opening the account.
