    Waste of money

    1. Overall customer rating
    2. (Reviewed about 21 hours ago)

    Worst bank I've ever been with. Can't comment on customer service because there is none. Fees are ridiculous. No features like other banks such as Tap n Pay or cardless cash or anything like Paypass.  Full review

    Commbank Goal Saver account offers no account fees, a relatively high interest rate (around 4% one of the highest on offer at the time I joined around 2 years ago). Who doesn't love compound interest - earning interest on interest...winning! You can also access your savings at anytime, but in doing so, your interest rate will drop for that month. I chose this saving account as I had the flexibility of accessing the money at any time but got the advantage of the higher interest rate. Commbank have provided a great service and I would recommend them to others.

    I was a customer of Westpac for 10 years and always happy with them until I decided to pursue further studies. Once I switched to a lower income as a full time student, I was told I would have to start paying bank fees on an account I had previously held with no monthly charges. I was told that unless I earn over a certain amount, or have a pension card, I would be charged fees for not depositing enough money into the account each month, and that there was no account for low income students without a pension card that did not charge fees ($5 a month which is quite a bit on a low income). So basically if you're doing well financially, you get the accounts for free, but if you're poor you have to pay for it. Makes sense... or not. I switched to Bankwest and despite the inconvenience of their branch locations, I'm much happier.

    The staff are polite and helpful. My local branch has computers that the public are able to use to do their online banking and bills while on the go. They also provide a relaxed environment where one can sit down and read a paper, even bottled water is provided for free. Most of all when there is a problem and you call them, they listen and resolve any issues speedily and competently. I have nothing but praise for Peoples Choice Credit Union.

    I've had my Commonwealth account since I started school banking. I used to love taking my little yellow dollar mite book on banking day! I have never banked with any other bank and now my 8 year old son has his dollar mite account that we use regularly to make deposits for him. Commonwealth is the kind of bank that encourages kids to save and that you can grow with as I have.
