Mozo Review   Community First Credit Union Student Starter Review

Last updated: 21 February 2019.

What's hot:
  • 2019 Mozo Experts Choice Award

  • Unlimited free transactions from phone, internet, Eftpos, own-bank ATM, branch and cheque

  • No ongoing fees

What's not:
  • 3% foreign exchange commission

Mozo snapshot:

The Community First Credit Union Student Starter Account is set to be your new best mate if you're an Aussie student between 7-24 years old, looking for an easy to navigate transaction account to stash your cash. With $0 account fees for students and an Eftpos/Visa debit card included, the Community First Credit Union Student Starter Account is sure to get you by with your daily spends (and online shopping addiction).

Plus it comes with high praise. The Student Starter account was recently awarded a 2019 Mozo Experts Choice Award in the Student Bank Account category!  

Key features:

If you whip out your concession card at lightning speed to make sure you get that 10% student discount wherever you go, chances are you currently live that frugal student-budget lifestyle. We assume you'd probably want to find just the right transaction account to fit this lifestyle, right? Well, look no further than the Community First Credit Union Student Starter Account.

This account will be your new best buddy if you’re an Aussie student, apprentice or trainee between 7-24 years old, looking for an account to store your coins without the slap in the face of those pesky account fees. And like most students that are glued to their phones 24/7, we'd say you’ll be happy to hear that you can manage your account and make unlimited free transactions via phone, internet, Eftpos, own-bank ATM, branch and cheque.

When you sign up for a Community First Credit Union Student Starter Account, you’ll also receive an Eftpos/Visa debit card, which comes with the option of a $500 Visa overdraft (subject to lending criteria). Not to mention the total convenience of Visa PayWave, allowing you to make secure purchases below $100.00 in a flash!

Keep in mind, as with most Aussie transaction accounts, the Student Starter is an interest-free account with a daily ATM withdrawal limit of $1,000 from RediATMs, so if you’re planning on dropping some serious coin, you might want to plan ahead.

Who it's good for:

The Community First Credit Union Student Starter Account is an excellent everyday access account for Aussies between 7-24 years old, who are studying or undertaking an apprenticeship/traineeship full-time. Once you’re over 24 or are no longer studying, you’ll be able to switch over to a regular Community First Credit Union Access Account.

Any catches?

Thinking of spending your uni break travelling across Europe on a Contiki tour? Be aware of the 3% foreign exchange commission, which is a pretty standard feature for most transaction accounts, but can eat into your travel budget. On the flipside, the Community First Credit Union Student Starter Account comes with a super handy free overseas ATM withdrawal feature.
