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 awarded a 2021 Mozo Experts Choice Award for Exceptional Everyday Account. Not to mention the fact that Macquarie itself was crowned Mozo's Everyday & Savings Bank of the Year for 2021 and received another Mozo Experts Choice Award for its Exceptional Banking App!

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!
