How do you apply for the Easy Street Easy Savings Account?

If you would like to take advantage of this account, you can start an application online.


There are some requirements which you should check first to make sure that you qualify for the Easy Street Easy Savings Account:

  • Community First Credit Union membership. Easy Street is a brand operated by Community First Credit Union. For this reason you must first become a shareholder and member by completing their online membership form and paying a $2 shareholder fee.
  • Age requirement. You must be at least 18 years of age to open the Easy Savings Account.
  • Residency requirement. Only Australian permanent residents and citizens are eligible for this account.
  • Opening deposit. There is no minimum opening deposit on your account, however you are required to make a deposit of $2 to pay for your shareholder fee to start your savings account.


Once you have determined that you can meet these requirements, continue on to the application with the following documentation:

  • Proof of identity. Australian law dictates that any banking institution must be able to positively verify your identity before initiating an account. Easy Street will try and prove your identity electronically using your Australian driver’s licence, passport, Medicare card or birth certificate, but if unsuccessful will request proof of identity in person.
  • Credit union number. You will need to be able to provide a Community First Credit Union membership number.
  • Linked account number. In order to be able to make deposits and withdrawals, you will need to supply the transaction account number and details for a bank in Australia.

If you are prepared, filling out the application should take approximately five minutes. It may take up to two business days to verify all of your information, at which time you will be issued an account number and can start adding to your savings account. Keep in mind that this is an online only financial institution, so you will not have access to any branch banking.

    It is not clear what to do to earn the bonus interest on the easy saving account. In other words what do I have to do different between earning 2% on this account and earning 3%?

      Hi John,

      Thank you for your inquiry.

      As of this writing, this Easy Street Easy Savings has an introductory rate of 3.00% p.a. (maximum variable rate) that includes a 1.00% p.a. bonus in addition to the standard variable rate of 2.00% p.a. There’s no condition in order this maximum variable rate to be met. It is available (only) for the first 6 months from opening the Easy Savings Account and on all balances.

      Please note though that this offer commenced on 1 August 2017 and is available on our Easy Savings Account for new accounts and new deposits only. The introductory rate offer can change or be withdrawn at any time and will end on 31 October 2017. After 6 months, the standard variable rate applies.

      Hope this helps.
