Mozo snapshot

Flexibility - that’s exactly what the Bank Australia Everyday Access account offers. Whether that’s the freedom to tap and go with a linked Visa Debit Card or to pay through the 2019 Mozo Experts Choice Award-winning Bank Australia app via either Apple Pay, Google Pay, PayID or Samsung Pay, Bank Australia provides plenty of options.

Plus, Bank Australia Everyday Access account-holders who deposit $2,000 into their account each month (a regular salary, for instance) will have the $5 monthly account fee waived.

Key features

Who likes paying fees? Nobody! Which is why Bank Australia give their Everyday Access account holders the chance to have the $5.00 monthly account fee waived when they deposit at least $2,000 into the account each month. Under the age of 25? Then the monthly account fee will be waived automatically.

Speaking of fees, customers can avoid ATM fees altogether with free withdrawals from Bank Australia ATMs as well as ATMs of all the major banks.

Being a transaction account, the Bank Australia Everyday Access account doesn't offer any interest gains, so it might be more rewarding to stash the bulk of your savings in an account like Bank Australia’s Bonus Saver account instead.

Where the Bank Australia Everyday Access account really shines is in its range of payment features. Aside from a regular linked Visa Debit Card or EFTPOS card, account-holders will also be able to make payments using Apple Pay, Google Pay, or Samsung Pay through the award-winning Bank Australia banking app, or make near-instant transfers with PayID.

Jetsetters will even be able to use the Everyday Access account while they’re overseas, though it’s worth noting that they may be hit with a 3.00% foreign exchange commission for purchases and a $3.50 fee for overseas ATM withdrawals.

Who is it good for

The Bank Australia Everyday Access bank account might appeal to Aussies who love having a range of cutting edge payment methods at their disposal, not to mention, an award-winning banking app!

Any catches

Before you sign up to the Bank Australia Everyday Access account, it may be worth weighing up whether you’ll be able to make a regular $2,000 monthly deposit into your account to avoid the $5 monthly account fee. Unless of course, you’re under the age of 25, in which case the monthly fee will be waived automatically!

    Competitive rates, great service and ethics

    Great app and online channels. Matches or betters all the products I used to have with a Big 4 bank, from mortgage to credit card to transaction account. Only one branch in Brisbane, but how often do you need one these days? Was easy to get to and very friendly when I did need the branch for some forex transactions. Love the ethics and sustainability strategy of this co-operative bank.

    Best ever customer service.

    I like this bank - it is not one of the big 4 and they don’t treat you like a number. They always bend over backwards to help you with any problems.

    A great ethical bank.

    I like Bank Australia because they are an ethical and sustainable bank. Bank Australia does not lend any money to the fossil fuel industry, the logging industry, the tobacco industry, the alcohol industry, live animal export or nuclear weapons industry. With something essential such as a bank account or a loan your decision can make a big impact on climate change. Bank Australia only lends money to sustainable and ethical companies. I love that I can call them up until 8pm if I have any questions. Bank Australia offers intuitive and safe Internet Banking just like other major banks. The only negative I found is the bank account fees. If you don't receive $2,000 per month into your bank account they charge an account fee of $5. If you earn more than $2,000 per month and make this your account into which your salary is paid, then there are no bank account fees. Also, as a customer of Bank Australia you become a part-owner in Bank Australia's 927 hectare Conservation Reserve. What a great bank to be a part of!
