What are the features of the Suncorp Everyday Basics Account?

The Everyday Basics Account offers a multitude of features that make it easy to manage your money. Compare these with other transaction accounts to determine which one benefits you the most:

  • Monthly account-keeping fee. Suncorp Bank does not charge you an account keeping fee for the Everyday Basics Account.
  • Methods of accessing your account. You can access your money through an ATM, EFTPOS, BPAY, internet banking, phone banking, mobile banking or at a Suncorp Bank branch.

  • ATM access. Suncorp Bank is partnered with Bendigo Bank, giving you fee-free transactions at any of its 1,700 ATMs around Australia. If you use an ATM outside of this network, the ATM provider may charge you for the transaction. This fee is charged to your account immediately after you make the transaction. You will also be charged $5 by Suncorp Bank if you use an ATM outside of its network.
  • Visa payWave. PayWave is a feature of the Visa debit card that allows you to make point-of-sale purchases of under $100 by simply waving the card in front of the reader. This feature is free of any extra fees and is available anywhere Visa is accepted.
  • Overseas transactions. Using ATMs overseas will incur a $5 charge per transaction from Suncorp Bank, plus any fees charged by the ATM provider.
  • Mobile app. You can bank online by downloading the Suncorp Bank app from the iTunes App Store or Google Play. The app gives you access to your recent transactions and balance, as well as allowing you to make transfers and pay bills.
