Suncorp eOptions flexiRates

Last updated:  

Add flexiRates to your Suncorp savings account and you can control how quickly your account grows.

FlexiRates is unique to Suncorp Bank. It works similar to a term deposit add-on for your bank account, letting you move portions of your balance into it for fixed periods where it earns interest at higher rates. Unlike most term deposits, however, it's almost entirely self-service and you can have up to 15 flexiRate deposits at a time without needing to open more accounts. You can choose different terms for each and set up your own renewal instructions for all of them, giving you more control over your savings.

Because it's online only, you can get higher rates with this feature than you can find elsewhere. Simply set it up for free online, and start a term when you want to earn higher interest.

      Hi Glennis,

      Thanks for your inquiry

      Yes, Term deposits are one of the safest investments around. Unlike other investments, for example, shares or property, there is basically no risk of losing the money you deposit. There are no establishment or ongoing service fees attached to term deposits (unless you withdraw your funds early), so you don’t have to worry about hidden fees and charges eating away at your savings balance.

      If you’re looking for a stable and secure investment opportunity, term deposits could be a perfect choice.

      Hope this information helps

      Cheers,
      Arnold
