Expert review

This account offers one of the best ongoing bonus rates in the market. However, make sure you can meet the monthly deposit condition before you open this account, otherwise you won't get the full rate.

If you don’t meet the account conditions for one month, you’ll still be eligible to earn the bonus interest the following month if the conditions are met. Plus, you can make withdrawals and still be eligible for bonus interest.

    While you must deposit a minimum of $1000, what is the restriction on withdrawal. After you deposit can you withdraw it, fully or part thereof

      Hi Tom,

      Thanks for your comment. I hope you are well.

      Regarding the BOQ Fast Track Saver Account — there is no restriction on withdrawals. You can make unlimited withdrawals and still be eligible for bonus interest for as long as you deposit $1,000 each month.

      Hope this helps and feel free to reach out to us again for further assistance.

    The maximum 2.5% only applies to the balance in the Fast Track Saver Account, and not the Day2Day Plus Account. Is this correct?

    In other words, after I deposit at least $1,000 to the linked Day2Day Plus Account each month, do I have to transfer that sum to the Fast Track Saver Account to benefit from the 2.5%?

      Hi Warren,

      Thank you for getting in touch with Finder.

      Yes, the maximum bonus rate of 2.50% p.a. applies to your Bank of Queensland Fast Track Saver account for as long as you link the account to a BOQ Day2Day Plus account and deposit at least $1,000 each month from an external account. It is up to you if you prefer to transfer your deposited money from your Day2Day Plus transaction account to your Fast Track Saver account.

      I hope this helps.

      Thank you and have a wonderful day!

      Cheers,

    In the terms, it states “For month 1 of account opening, the Base Rate applies, with eligibility assessed at the end of this month, and if met, Bonus Rate will apply from month 2.”. Does this mean the bonus rate is only available in the second month if $1,000 is added to the account?

      Hello Stuart,

      Thank you for your comment.

      Upon checking, according to the terms and conditions, A Bonus Interest variable rate will only be paid if Bonus Criteria are met in the previous month. Bonus Criteria will be met where a minimum of $1,000 is credited to the linked Day2Day Plus Account in the prior month. The minimum amount does not include amounts transferred from another one of your BOQ Accounts. The variable Base Rate applies to balances over $250,000. The variable Base Rate always applies in the first month after opening an account. In the first month, Bonus Criteria on the transaction account is measured from the time the Fast Track Saver Account is opened, not the full calendar month even if the transaction account was already existing. Interest is calculated on a stepped basis and paid monthly on the first day of the following month. If Bonus Criteria conditions are not met the variable Base Rate only will apply.

      Therefore, the bonus interest rate is based on the first month.

      Regards,
      Jhezelyn
