    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
