Expert review

This account acts like a transaction account offering easy access to your money 24/7, while at the same time paying a variable interest rate on your money. Earning interest on a transaction account isn’t very common, so it’s a great bonus feature with this account.

Your balance up to $50,000 will earn the standard variable interest rate of 0.05%. And you’ll still enjoy all the benefits of a transaction account, including a linked Visa Debit card to make purchases in stores, online and to withdraw cash from ATMs. Sometimes transaction accounts that pay interest don't come with a debit card, but this one does.

There’s no monthly account keeping fee to worry about, and you can access all Big Four bank ATMs in Australia for free. You will, however, be charged a 3% international transaction fee on overseas purchases and cash withdrawals, so keep this in mind if you do a lot of overseas travel.

Key features

No monthly fees

There are no monthly account keeping fees and no minimum balance requirements to meet.

    Will the Bank of Sydney allow me to take advantage of their fixed deposit interest rates(2.85% in particular) if I open an Everyday Saver account with a deposit of say $300 or $500?

      Hi Matthew,

      Thank you for getting in touch with Finder.

      If you consider opening this Bank of Sydney SuperRate account, the fixed 1.05% per annum interest rate is added to the base rate for the first four months on new funds only. In order to receive the bonus rate you must also have a Bank of Sydney transaction account like the Bank of Sydney EveryDay Saver Account and have periodical monthly payments of at least $200 transferred into the savings account for the duration of the four month introductory offer. The rate reverts to the standard rate of 1.75% p.a. after the four month period ends, or if you fail to meet the conditions.

      I hope this helps.

      Thank you and have a wonderful day!

      Cheers,
      Jeni
