NEW! The People’s Choice Product Portfolio

Based on your feedback we’ve put together Mozo’s ‘People’s Choice’ Portfolio, a collection of products that are making Australians happy and could save you $4391! If your bank didn’t make the cut this year, go where the grass is actually greener.

If you’re still paying high interest on an average standard variable home loan, you could lock in a much lower rate and save yourself $2935 over three years. That money could be used to do something fun like take an overseas holiday, or be put towards extra repayments that would save you an additional $5,223 in interest repayments over the life of your loan.

Stuck paying a bunch of interest on an average credit card? Go where the grass is greener. On an outstanding balance of $3000, savvy switchers can save $438 by choosing to go with the People’s Choice credit card provider. Go on, give yourself some credit.

Savings Accounts

Would you pay yourself $10 a minute if you could? That’s effectively what you’d be doing by switching to a People’s Choice Winner’s savings account with an existing balance of $10,000. $106 better-off for filling out a 10 minute application form? There’s a reason ING Direct took out Best Bank this year.

Debit Cards

If you’re paying any fees at all for your debit card service, you’re paying too much. The average debit card will be quietly charging you $2.05 a month just to exist but the People’s Choice of Debit card wont charge you anything at all and will give you $50 for joining and making a few purchases on your new card – a savings of $74 over three years.
