    I changed over to Commonwealth a while ago because ANZ kept stuffing me around all the time and since changing to Commonwealth, my pay goes in sooner, it's better for me especially with kids and sometimes you have to do a run to the shops at 10pm because they've ran out of nappies or need formula, it's convenience for me and has really helped me and my family.

    Ubank Ultra, is an online account WITH ATM access. You can withdraw funds at NAB & RediATM for free. 24 hr customer service by phone. Also there's email, Facebook, Twitter, Skype. Connect it to a Ubank Usaver and deposit at least $200 per month to get a very high interest rate, (so just have your pay paid directly in there to make it even easier). Can't fault it. Who needs a branch these days anyway. No standing in line with this one!
