    How do I apply for the increased interest on Netbank Saver account

      Hi Diana,

      Thanks for reaching out to Finder.

      If you are referring to NetBank Saver’s bonus introductory interest rate, you will be able to receive it if you open a NetBank Saver for the first time from 04 October 2019. You’ll then receive a variable introductory interest rate of 1.65% p.a. (this includes a fixed bonus margin of 1.55% p.a. on top of the standard variable rate) for the first 5 months after account opening.

      Please note that the variable introductory interest rate will not apply to NetBank Saver accounts which are jointly owned, where one of the account holders has previously held a NetBank Saver account. At the end of the introductory rate period, the NetBank Saver standard variable rate applicable at that time will apply.

      As a reminder, before applying, please ensure that you meet all the eligibility criteria and review the PDS/T&Cs before making a decision on whether it is right for you.

      I hope this helps.

      Hi Edward,

      Thanks for getting in touch! The bonus interest is only offered to those opening a NetBank Saver account for the first time. Given this, opening a 2nd Netbank Saver account will not allow you to take advantage of the 2% interest rate.

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

      Hi Yiu-kwok,

      Thanks for getting in touch! Yes, you can transfer your funds after maturity to your Netbank Saver’s account. However, if you’ve had your Netbank opened for a while, it’s helpful to know that you the bonus interest cannot be applied since the bonus interest is only offered to those opening a NetBank Saver account for the first time. Offer is valid for 5 months after account opening.

      Hope this helps!

    Hi, I already have a commonwealth account with a NetBank saver linked to smart access. I would like to open another NetBank saver account. Is that possible to link two NetBank saver accounts to a smart access account? Thanks!

      Hi SB,

      Thank you for contacting Finder.

      You may only link one (1) NetBank Saver Account to one (1) Smart Access Account. If you wish to proceed with your preference of linking 2 NetBank Saver Account to a single Smart Access Account, you need to visit CommBank’s nearest branch to you to confirm this and make the necessary arrangements.

      I hope this helps.

      Please do not hesitate to reach out again to us if you have additional questions.
