Expert review

The great thing about this account is that if you're under 25, it's much easier to earn the bonus interest rate. If you're aged 18-24 you'll earn an ongoing bonus variable rate of 1.2% p.a. each month you deposit at least $1,000 and make at least five transactions. Once you're 25 or older, the deposit condition is increased to $1,000 per month which may be harder to meet.

If you're aged 14-17, there are no monthly account conditions to meet to earn bonus interest.
