Expert review

This everyday account can be used on its own or linked to a savings account with Greater Bank. If you like to do your banking in branch, Greater Bank has several bank branches in the Newcastle and Hunter regions but not many outside of this area.

This account has no monthly account fees and easy access to your balance with Internet and mobile banking. Greater Bank still has more than 3000 ATMs across the country which you can use for free, and you can also use any CBA, Westpac, NAB or ANZ ATM for free too. Note that some transaction fees do apply once you've used up your monthly fee rebate.
