Expert review

This savings account offers a bonus interest rate of 1.5% each month you meet the account conditions. You need to link to an ING Orange Everyday account , deposit $1,000 a month into either account and make 5 or more Visa debit card purchases a month.

The monthly deposit condition is higher than many other accounts, however you’re able to withdraw as much as you want from the account during the month while still being eligible for bonus interest. And if you meet the account conditions, you’ll also get all overseas ATM fees refunded on your Orange Everyday transaction account and you won’t pay any international transaction fees. This could save you a fair bit of money if you travel a lot or often shop online from overseas stores, and it’s a fairly unique benefit that isn’t offered by many transaction accounts.

The bonus interest rate is quite competitive however it’s only available on balances up to $100,000, so it may not be what you’re looking for if you’ve got a larger balance.

Key features

Standard variable interest rate of 0.1% p.a.

Your savings balance will have a variable interest rate of 0.1% p.a. applied to it each month.

Competitive maximum variable interest rate of 1.5% p.a.

If you have linked an Orange Everyday Bank Account from ING with your Savings Maximiser and deposit at least $1,000 into either account and make 5+ card purchases a month, you will receive bonus interest of 1.4% p.a. on your balance. This makes the total interest applied for the month a competitive 1.5% p.a.

      Hi Paul,

      Thank you for your question. It’s recommended that you link this account, ING Savings Maximiser, with an ING Orange Everyday Account so you can receive the bonus interest. Both accounts are from ING. Hope this helps.

      Regards,

      Hi Sue,

      Thanks for getting in touch. I’m sorry to hear you have forgotten your password.

      If this is your online password, please check for any retrieval command/s on the app and proceed with changing your password online. If this is for your Orange Everyday Debit Card, you’d need to contact ING directly to be assisted further.

      I wish I could help you further but since we are not working with ING, we won’t be able to access the password change process.

      Hope this helps and feel free to reach out to us again for further assistance.

      Best,
      Nikki

    If I open a Savings Maximiser account today, would I receive my card before next Wednesday I fly out on Thursday. Secondly, would I pay NO overseas transaction fees using that card?
    Thanks

      Hi Rob,

      Thanks for your message and for your interest in ING Savings Maximiser savings account. Kindly note that this account is not connected with a physical card as this account needs to be connected with your Orange Everyday account. If you wish to proceed, you can open an account by clicking the ‘Go to Site’ buttons on this page. This will securely take you to the ING website to start an online application. When the application is complete you can submit it to ING online. If they are able to verify your identity electronically your account will be opened instantly and you can begin depositing money to be saved.

      As a friendly reminder, review the eligibility criteria, fees, interest rates, and terms & conditions of this account before applying. You may also contact the insurance provider should you have any questions about their policy.

      Hope this helps!

      Hi Lou,

      Thank you for contacting Finder.

      For balances more than $100,000, the current Standard Variable Rate at that time will apply. As of now, the Standard Variable Rate is 0.50% p.a.

      I hope this helps.

      Please do not hesitate to reach out again to us if you have additional questions.

      Cheers,

      Hi Louise,

      Thanks for your inquiry.

      Sorry to hear you’re not receiving the highest interest rate even if you are meeting the qualifications of the account. While we review ING on our pages, we won’t be able to review your account about this matter. We suggest that you contact ING to discuss any concerns you may have about interest charges.

      Hope this clarifies!

      Best,
      Nikki

    Is there a savings ability other than a term deposit that allows savings without access to it before $10,000 term deposit can be set up?

      Hi Jason,

      Thank you for reaching out.

      We may not have a list of savings account where you have to reach a certain amount before you can withdraw your money but we have an alternative solution that you may want to consider. You can choose to open a savings account with high interest rates provided that no withdrawals will be made to motivate you on not taking your money off. You can visit Savings accounts you can’t touch for more information and for the complete guidelines for your consideration.

      Hope this helps! 😊

      Kind Regards,
      Mai

    Hi! For the ING Savings Maximiser account, do I get the bonus counting from the first day of every month when I transferred in $1000+ on 15th of every month?

      Hi Moz,

      Welcome to Finder and thanks for leaving a question.

      ING Savings Maximiser’s interest rate is calculated daily in the daily balance of your account. It is calculated as Daily Balance X interest rate (as a percentage) divided by 365.

      If you were able to make 5+ card purchases and deposit $1,000+ you will get the maximum rate up to 2.80% p.a for the whole month even if you deposited in the middle of the month But please note that the day when you deposited will still have a factor on calculating the interest as daily balance is part of the interest calculation.

      Hope this helps.

      Kind Regards,
      Mai
