Expert review

This account is suited to customers who make a large number of transactions and withdrawals each month. By depositing $2000 a month you’ll pay no account keeping fees and get unlimited free transactions including ATMs in Australia, EFTPOS transactions, electronic and BPAY transactions.

If you don’t think you can meet the monthly deposit requirement for this account, you could consider the Greater Bank Access Account instead which has no ongoing deposit conditions. However, it does charge some transaction fees.

Key features

Monthly account keeping fees

You are not responsible for paying any monthly account keeping fees.

Transaction fees

If you are able to deposit at least $2,000 into the account each month you are not going to have to pay any fees for your daily banking transactions. If you have linked this account with a Greater Bank Ultimate Home Loan, the minimum deposit requirement will not apply in order to avoid fees.

      Hello Sarah!

      Thanks for getting in touch with finder.

      There is a 3.00% conversion fee for all international transactions. If your Ultimate account meets the required minimum monthly deposit you will not be charged the $5.00 foreign ATM charge.

      Hope this clarifies. Feel free to leave a message should you have further questions regarding this.

      Thanks,
      Nikki
