    The fees charged are the best in the banking sector . I am not sure re loans, I haven't had any loans approved so I am not too happy with that. Credit card, I have not been approved for one after making application and told that they were not lending to businesses at present, this is about six months ago.

    What I admire the most is the customer service. Every time I visit in store or phone I am always treated with respect and with a smile. The staff are always friendly. Although I have a pink McGrath Visa card I still find my savings and auto-pay accounts extremely helpful as I am saving for a good quality, electric upright piano to teach from my apartment after having moved due to unforeseen circumstances. Staff are always so helpful. A very big thank you to all customer service staff at Community First credit union!

    I am currently with Commonwealth Bank but I have a savings with P&N. I'm going to talk about my experience with P&N. I've never been 'one' to save money. Since banking with P&N, I've saved enough money to get a good credit rating and was successful in a car loan, also (lucky me) went on my first holiday! My next goal is a house loan and I'd like to save a lot more through P&N. Customer service is professional and friendly, my questions are always answered the day I go to the bank. I'm always told about the products and schemes they have for different price brackets.

    The personal feeling you get when you walk into the branch. Every one says hello and you get treated like a friend. Branches are usually small and not overrun by gold diggers or people that are only there for the fortnightly paycheck. Products are only offered to you on request and not shoved down your throat all the time.

    I generally don't take the time to write reviews but in this case I will. I have a very busy lifestyle and time poor, the ANZ bank has the opportunity with a customer like myself to provide viable options that would make my money work smarter for me and keep me as a happy customer, instead the times that my savings account status has been brought to my attention by 'friendly' staff, it is like having an untrustworthy car salesman approach that doesn't inspire confidence. It is time I moved on to another institution.

    When I was setting up my children's banks accounts with the Bendigo bank I was amazed at the outstanding customer service I received.

    Commonwealth Bank GoalSaver savings account gives you high interest (around 4%) on any savings in the account provided the account grows by $200 a month. Lower interest rate compared to a term deposit but you can access your money anytime without fees (you just lose the interest for that month). Interest rates have dropped since the account was first started (used to be 6%).

    Cons: No direct ATMs Pros: Can withdraw money from any ATM and the cost is reimbursed. The staff are very efficient and friendly If a payment is due and there are insufficient funds, they carry it through till you can pay (If you are receiving regular credits and when reasonable). In other words, ING is happy to have your business and they are not greedy.

    We have had our account for many years and have found it suitable to our needs. The overdraft interest rate is a bit too high and the yearly fees are a bit expensive.
