    Hi! Are there any conditions to get the bonus rate, such as a minimum deposit per week/month or tap and go purchase per week/month?

    Can I open a Maxi Saver account for the 3 month bonus period with Bank of Melbourne then close the account. Moving the funds to another Westpac subsidiary such as St Georges and be considered a new customer to take advantage of the bonus interest rate period?

    Could I deposit fund directly to Maxi Saver account ?

      Hi Nat,

      Thank you for your inquiry.

      The Bank of Melbourne’s Maxi Saver is an online account, so you can’t deposit funds directly into this account. You must have a transaction account with the Bank of Melbourne linked to the Maxi Saver so you’re able to deposit funds (through online banking, phone banking or branch) or withdraw money from your account.

    Looking at opening online saver a/c. How do I deposit funds into your accounts? I’m in NSW and currently with the CBA who have a $20,000 daily transfer limit. Preferably I want to transfer the whole amount in one transaction which exceeds the transfer limit.
