    I have just set up a St George Online Maxi Saver account. I also have a Power saver account, which I understand is no longer available.
    Is it possible to transfer balance of Power Saver to new Online Maxi saver account and close the former?

      Hi Paul!

      Thanks for the comment.

      You can do ‘Transfer between my accounts’ using an internet or mobile banking for this to be accomplished.

      Regarding closing request and other inquiries, you may contact St. George Bank at 13 33 22 – 24 hours, 7 days.

      Hope this helps.

      Hi Babita,

      Thanks for your question.

      Yes you still earn interest from the account. At the time of writing, the Power saver account earns tiered interest. Interest of 0.05% p.a is applied on funds up to $9,999.99.

      From $10,000 up to $19,999.99 interest rate is 0.15% p.a
