Maximum variable rate
5.50% p.a.
Base interest rate
0.05%p.a.
Minimum deposit
$1,000

Our verdict

This account has a high ongoing bonus rate of 5.5% p.a on balances up to $50,000 for customers under 35.

Gold Finder Awards Badge
Finder Awards winner

This is one of the best bonus rates available on the market if you’re aged between 14 and 35. This is why the account was the winner of the Best Savings Account - Young Adult category in the 2022 Finder Awards.

You do need to deposit $1000 a month, so make sure this is something you can realistically do monthly before choosing this account. Otherwise you’ll only earn the standard rate which is very low.

The total bonus rate is available on balances up to $50,000, which is higher than other young adult savings accounts too. If your balance is above this it’ll earn a slightly lower bonus rate instead.

Pros

  • High ongoing bonus rate available
  • Make withdrawals and still earn bonus interest
  • Set personal savings goals and track your progress
  • Deposit condition to achieve bonus interest is lower than some other savings accounts
  • Won Best Young Adult Savings Account in 2023 Finder Awards

Cons

  • Age restrictions
  • The $1000 monthly deposit condition may be challenging for some people to meet
  • The total bonus rate isn't available in balances over $50,000

Hi Alison, how is interest calculated? For example, can I deposit $1500 before the start of the month and I’ll get 5.30% on that? Or does it have to sit for longer? (Assuming bonus criteria is met)

Hi Zoe, interest is calculated on your daily balance and paid monthly.

I am 35 years old. If I open an account. How would I calculate the interest rate for the following year?

Hi Michael, your account will automatically convert to a Smart Saver Account when you turn 36 (see Smart Saver rates here: https://www.finder.com.au/bank-of-queensland-smart-saver-account).

The interest will be determined according to Smart Saver rates for the month following your birthday.

Thanks,

Alison

Is there a difference between “deposit $1000” and “grow account”? If I deposit $1000 then withdraw it, does that still count as it doesn’t say it needs to remain in the account.

Hi Mitch,

You need to ensure $1000 is deposited into your account (from an external source) each month to meet the condition. You are able to withdraw the money again after depositing.

Thanks,

Alison

For a joint account to receive a max interest of 4.75 %, can one of the account holders be above 35 years and one be between 14 and 35 years?

Hi Melville,

Both account holders need to be aged 14-35 to open a Future Saver Account. Customers aged 35+ will instead be given a Smart Saver account.

Thanks,

Alison
