$3,000 cashback: ING unveils new incentive for home loan refinancers

woman-with-arms-outstreched-wide

Online mortgage lender ING has launched a new cashback scheme for borrowers looking to refinance their home loans.

The bank will provide eligible refinancers with $3,000 cashback if they switch their existing loan from another lender to ING. There are a few loan requirements to meet (listed below) and other terms and conditions may apply (see ING’s website for more details):

  • Loan sizes must be $500,000+ with a maximum loan-to-value ratio (LVR) of 80%
  • Applications must be received by December 31, 2021
  • Loans must be settled by 31 March, 2022

ING is by no means the only lender offering a cashback deal though. In fact, as of September 23, there are 27 lenders in the Mozo database offering cashback deals between $1,500 and $5,000 to eligible refinancers.

Of course, when it comes to comparing home loans there’s more to think about than just a cashback deal, as interest rates, fees and other loan features may all be important factors.

But if you are thinking about refinancing your loan and you’d like to learn more about ING's home loans, we’ve made it easy by wrapping up three of them with mini reviews below.

Eligible refinancers can even score $3,000 cashback (T&Cs apply) when they switch a loan of $500,000 or more (max. 80% LVR) over to ING, as long as they apply by December 31, 2021 and have their loan settled by March 31, 2022.

There are a few fees to take into account though, such as the $299 yearly service fee and one-off settlement ($299) and discharge ($250) fees. We can’t forget the cashback offer though!
