What are the features of the bcu Saver?

This account is suited to customers who prefer to conduct their banking inside a bcu branch or remotely. This means you won’t receive cheque books, Visa cards or Cue cards to conduct your transactions.There’s also no access to ATMs. The bcu Saver is a simple savings option with limited features, but it still offers certain benefits:

Get an interest rate of 0.25% when your balance is over $1000

As a tiered rate structured savings account, your interest is calculated on the whole balance over $1000. Interest is paid monthly. You also have the option to automatically transfer funds to a linked account. As with all variable interest rate accounts, note this will move alongside the RBA cash rate.
