Commonwealth Bank GoalSaver savings account review

The main thing that bugged me with my goal saver was that the monthly interest was ridiculously low. When I read up about it I noticed that the amount of monthly interest was not mentioned. I still have saved a lot more than I would have without using it but the extra 2 or 3 dollars a month is not a very good incentive to save. I understand dishing out money for pretty much nothing is not a very sustainable business model but it would have been nicer to have a reward that actually matters.

I initially chose to go with Ubank as they have a high competitive interest earned rate that does not require an extensive amount to be placed into that account per month. They are always happy to answer any enquiries over the phone or via online. The only downside is that they do not any any branches where you are able to go into to get funds out. But as I only use it for my savings account I don't take funds out of the account meaning there is no need to head into a branch.

They are a little impersonal, if you have a query you have to sit around waiting for a long time, I had to wait over half an hour sitting in the entrance where every one comes and goes in a distressed state, as I had to explain to the young lady I wished to see someone as my husband had just died.This was just unfortunate,otherwise they are quite efficient and the tellers are helpful and friendly. I was probably a bit sensitive as I haven't been unhappy with them before.
