Mozo snapshot

Macquarie has come out guns blazing with its Platinum Transaction Account. You'll have free access to rediATMs, get a refund on fees incurred at all other ATMs in Australia and be charged no international transaction fees and no monthly account keeping fees. Plus you'll gain access to a range of platinum features including 90 day theft and damage protection and a concierge service when you deposit over $4,000 a month. 

Yep, it's easy to see why the Platinum Transaction Account was crowned a multiple Mozo Experts Choice Award winner - in 2020 for Everyday Exceptional Account and in 2019 for best Travel Debit Card

Key features

With the Platinum Transaction Account you'll pay no account keeping, EFTPOS, debit, phone, internet or over the counter deposit and withdrawal fees. Add to this free withdrawals from rediATMs, one of the largest ATM networks in Australia and it's truly a great value bank account. There's also no currency conversion fee to worry about.

So far it sounds like a great fee free bank account right? But what makes it deserve the title of "platinum"? Well, now we are onto the good stuff - the perks. When you deposit over $4,000 each month, you'll gain access to complimentary:

- 90 day theft and damage protection on eligible purchases you make using the linked debit card
- Platinum 24/7 concierge services
- Cover against theft of your handbag or wallet up to $500
- Emergency travel assistance services (e.g medical evacuation, essential medicine)
- MasterCard Platinum privileges including PricelessCities, which gives you access to discount tourist experiences in the location of your choice.

Phew, that's a whole lot of complimentary features!

    Bank is good, app not so much

    I am generally happy with Macquarie, but find their app a bit frustrating in terms of trying to track my spending - items stay 'pending' for ages and the balance isn't always up to date, so you don't have an accurate gauge unless you go in and add up your transactions manually.

    No Fees, ATM Money back immediately

    Refunds for any ATM immediately back into your account, added bonus features with the Platinum account if you deposit enough each month, and no account fees. Use the servo ATM, use the pub ATM, and don't worry about the ridiculous fees, it's all coming back to you!

    Good bank

    Macquarie is professionally run, committed to wealth creation. It's easy to transfer thousands at the touch of one button. Most other banks need tokens and other kiddy like acts to facilitate action.
