Expert review

This is a convenient two-in-one account that’s a mix between an everyday transaction account and a savings account. You get at-call access to your money, which means you can access it at any time without restrictions. It comes with a Visa Debit Card that you can use to make purchases online, in store via EFTPOS and to withdraw your cash at ATMs.

At the same time, you’ll also earn interest on your balance. This isn’t common for an account that offers at-call access to your money. On balances up to $10,000 you’ll earn 0.05% interest. And the interest rates are tiered, so you’ll earn even more interest on larger balances.

This interest rate isn’t nearly as high as what you’d get from a savings account, but the majority of savings accounts don’t offer at-call access to your money. So in terms of a transaction account, this interest rate is actually quite generous.
