Mozo Review   Bankwest Easy Transaction Account Review

Last updated: 4 October 2018.

What's hot:
  • No ongoing fees

  • Deposit $4000 per month to be eligible for Platinum Debit MasterCard

What's not:
  • $5 overseas ATM fee

Mozo snapshot:

The Bankwest Easy Transaction Account has earned its name, with no monthly maintenance fee and no domestic electronic, cheque, phone or over the counter fees (withdrawal and deposit). Plus, you can avoid pesky ATM fees at over 10,000 major bank ATMs Australia wide within the Bankwest, Commonwealth, Westpac, NAB and ANZ networks.

Key features:

Bankwest Easy Alerts is a new feature on the Easy Transaction Account and helps you keep on top of your everyday banking by providing updates on your personal transaction and saving accounts.

With the Easy Transaction Account you'll pay no monthly maintenance fee, and there's no opening deposit or minimum balance required. And no matter the time or day, you can access your cash with 24 hour/7 days a week Bankwest online banking and phone banking.

Not only will you have great ATM access in Australia within the Bankwest, Commonwealth, ANZ, Westpac, NAB, St.George, Bank of Melbourne and Bank SA networks but you'll also be able to use your card wherever Mastercard is accepted around the globe with its Debit Mastercard. Speaking of Mastercard, the Easy Transaction Account lets you "tap and go" at the check out with Mastercard for purchases under $100.

If you're a big earner and deposit $4,000 a month you'll be eligible for the Platinum Debit Mastercard with exclusive benefits, including a complimentary concierge service, purchase security, extended warranty and dining, retail and entertainment privileges. Ah the high life!

Remember, just like most transaction accounts in Australia, there's no interest rate and the Easy Transaction Account has a $1,000 a day ATM withdrawal limit (or $2,000 at Bankwest and CBA ATMs). So if you're planning on splurging, plan ahead! 

If you happen to lose your card, the good news is you can put a temporary lock on it through the app, until it shows up. But keep in mind, if you lose it for good and need a replacement, there is a $15 debit card replacement fee (free if your card is stolen). 

Who it's good for:

The Bankwest Easy Transaction Account is designed for Aussies over the age of 11 years of age, who are looking for a debit card with a large ATM network in Australia. It's also ideal for those who prefer banking face to face, with fee free withdrawal and deposits over the counter. 


Any catches?

Jet-setters beware, the Easy Transaction Account is not the card for big overseas spending with a hefty $5 overseas ATM withdrawal fee and a 2.95% foreign exchange fee on top of that. So if you're looking for a travel friendly money card, search the market here.

    The bank is okay. I am not impressed by any bank. I would rather go back to jam tins. Banks don't care anymore. They only look after themselves and their share holders, not the customers. I lost my home to the bank and they did not help me when I needed it most. I wanted to refinance once I had paid off my arrears and they refused stating that they would make it their business to take my home.

    Bankwest is a good bank with friendly and accomodating staff who always do their best to meet your needs. They keep a close watch on transactions and immediately notify you if anything suspicious is going on. They have twice had to cancel my debit and credit card in the last 3 months because of charges which I did not originate - these were transactions they picked up for me. I am very happy with Bankwest.
