The Complete Freedom bank account has unlimited free withdrawals from any St.George, Westpac or BankSA ATM and unlimited transactions with St.George telephone and internet bank services.
The difference with the Complete freedom package, compared with the St.George Express Freedom account, is that it also includes unlimited free over the counter transactions from any St.George branch. You can get the monthly account fee waived but you'll need to deposit a minimum $2000 a month or have a home loan with St.George. There is a Visa debit card option with the account (upon request) but the standard account only comes with a EFTPOS / ATM card.
If you need to access your money overseas you'll get charged $5 for overseas ATM withdrawals and 3% foreign exchange commission on any purchases made through the Visa Debit Card.
And for customers who open a new Complete Freedom account (either online or in a branch) before 17 January 2019 and deposit at least $250 within 45 days will be able to snag $40 cashback.
Who it's good for:
Anyone who already has a home loan with St.George or for anyone who needs regular branch access for their everyday banking.
If you need to set up regular payments from your account do it yourself via internet banking. St.George charge a $4 monthly periodic payment fee for each payment that they set up on your behalf.
