ANZ bucks trend with a $2000 cashback refinance home loan offer

The number of cashback switching incentives for borrowers to refinance their home loan has declined throughout 2023, but in good news for borrowers ANZ Bank is bucking the trend and has a $2,000 cashback offer available to new customers.  

The ANZ cashback offer is available to eligible owner occupiers or investors who refinance a loan from another financial institution to ANZ. Importantly, all loans must be more than $250,000 and have a loan-to-value ratio of 80% or less to be eligible. 

Mozo banking expert, Peter Marshall says that while cashback offers can be a good incentive to switch, first and foremost, borrowers should be looking at the interest rate and fees of the home loan as this is going to overall have the longest term financial benefit.   

If you’re wondering how ANZ’s current loan deal stacks up with other home loans on the market, we’ve outlined some of the key details below.
