Expert review

This is a straightforward everyday bank account with no account keeping fees and easy access to your balance 24/7. There’s no ongoing account deposit conditions to meet, and no minimum balance requirement.

However, you might get more value from HSBC’s Everyday Global Account particularly if you like to travel. With the Everyday Global Account, there’s still no monthly fees and you can also hold up to 10 currencies. There’s also no international transaction fee with this account, unlike the Day 2 Day account which does charge this fee.

You pay no monthly fees for using the HSBC transaction account.

    Hi Daniel,

    Thanks for itemizing your questions. Let me do my best to answer them the best I can. By the way, just a friendly reminder, we can only offer general information since we are not affiliated to HSBC.

    1. will the bank charge us (joint account) any fees for deposits to the day to day transaction acct over the counter?

    No. You won’t be charged making deposits over the counter. Moreover, other free transactions include internet banking, EFTPOS, Bank@Post, BPAY and automated telephone banking.

    2. Is each of us issued with a debit key card?

    Yes, that is correct. Both of you will receive your individual debit key card.

    3. Can we use internet banking separately with individual password?

    Yes, you will be able to use individual passwords.

    I hope this helps. Should you have further questions, please don’t hesitate to reach us out again.

    Have a wonderful day!

    I work overseas so I’m not currently living in Australia. Can I open this account online before I return to Australia in July? Or if I have to go to a branch to open it, what information will I need?

      Hi Chris,

      Thanks for your question.

      If you use your HSBC Day to Day Transaction Account Visa debit card to shop online on a website that uses a currency other than AUD, you will be charged 3.00% of the Australian dollar amount for the service. The Visa exchange rate will be used.
