Linked Visa debit card
This account comes with a linked Visa debit card which you can use to make payments in stores and online all around the world. The card also offers Visa PayWave, so you can tap and go without entering a PIN for purchases under $100.

Earn up to a competitive bonus interest rate on your savings

You can earn bonus interest if you add the USaver Ultra transaction account to your UBank USaver, and transfer at least $200 per month into either account. The bonus interest is applicable on balances up to $200,000.
Sweep technology helps you save
Set up your own limits for how much money you want to regularly add to your savings, and how much you need in your transaction account for everyday spending and bills. Then, the built-in sweep technology will automatically move money between your transaction and savings account each night to ensure your savings goal is met, and you have enough for expenses.

View your account balance, recent transactions and make transfers or online payments anywhere, anytime with Internet banking or via the UBank mobile banking app.
