    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.

      Cheers,
      Ash

    Will the RBA rate cut change the interest rate offered by the Netbank Saver of 2.51% for 5 months?

    • Avatarfinder Customer Care
      JeniJune 16, 2019Staff

      Hi Wayne,

      Thank you for getting in touch with Finder.

      As per this page, depositors could soon be earning even less interest on their savings with the RBA’s decision on cutting the official cash rate to 1.25% after more than 30 months of no movement. This means that the RBA rate cut is good news for home owners but not for savers.

      I hope this helps.

      Thank you and have a wonderful day!

      Cheers,
      Jeni

    what is the difference between 1.5% and 2.5% interest ie amount invested

    • Avatarfinder Customer Care
      DeeFebruary 2, 2017Staff

      Hi David,

      Thanks for your question.

      I would like to confirm, are you referring to the standard variable rate of 1.05% and maximum variable rate of 2.50% p.a.?

      The maximum variable rate is what you will receive if you are able to get the bonus rate which is offered to those opening a NetBank Saver account for the first time. Offer is valid for 3 months after account opening for balances up to $5,000,000. After 3 months, you’ll only be receive the standard variable rate which is 1.05% p.a.

      I hope this helps.

      Cheers,
      Anndy
