Expert review

This account offers a maximum bonus rate of 1.75% which is really competitive today’s market. Not only does this account offer an attractive rate, but it’s also quite easy to get it.

The monthly deposit required to earn bonus interest with this account is just $20. In comparison, other bonus savings accounts require you to deposit $1000 or more per month. You’re also required to make five or more Visa Debit card transactions from your linked MyState transaction account each month to earn the bonus interest. There’s no set amount you need to spend to meet this requirement, so it could be as simple as buying five coffees in the month or buying five bus or train tickets.

Make sure you can meet the bonus rate conditions, because if you don’t one month you’ll earn the low base rate of just 0.15%. You’ll be eligible for the bonus interest rate the following month, though.

You’re also permitted to make as many withdrawals from your savings as you need to while still being eligible for the bonus interest. However, don’t fall into the trap of withdrawing from your savings just because you can. The less money you keep in your account, the less interest you’ll earn.

    Is there a cap on the balance of the account to earn the full 2.6%?

      Hi Annette,

      Thank you for your comment.

      The maximum interest rate is up to 2.60% p.a. if you meet the conditions. You earn bonus interest for the month when you:

      – Deposit $20 or more in to your Bonus Saver Account each month.
      – Make five or more eligible VISA Debit card transactions each month from your linked account.

      The bonus interest is payable on balances up to $150,000.

    Do you still get the 2.6% p.a. interest if you don’t make the 5 transactions from the linked MyState transaction account?

      Hi Laura,

      Thank you for getting in touch with finder.

      You would get the standard variable rate at 0.80% p.a. if you did not meet the bonus rate’s eligibility requirements, which are monthly deposit of at least $20 and making 5 or more Visa Debit card transactions from your linked MyState transaction account.

      I hope this helps.

      Please feel free to reach out to us if you have any other enquiries.

      Thank you and have a wonderful day!

      Cheers,
      Jeni
