ME bank was the king of the crop including majors for the best deposit rates, and Customer Service. On line access and info available was OK at best. Then came the closure of branches so much that in the ACT you have to travel to the city centre to access an only branch. But there was acceptable on-line facilities. Then in late 2014 came the IT system upgrade where basic information to manage accounts like interest rate and term expiry date is no longer provided. So my options for getting info on accounts is to drive 40 kms each way or long wait on call centres. Despite forms giving clear directions, re-investment errors are common and getting them fixed is a nightmare. I am seriously re-considering removing several hundred thousand dollars in family members accounts and going elsewhere. Worst they cannot even tell you when basic online info will be available. They also reported wrong interest info to Tax Dept last year.

The staff are friendly, personalise, and treat you like a person, and not a stupid one if you are not very into banking, rather than a number. All staff have clear and concise communication skills which is a big plus in today's times.

When I joined ME Bank it had excellent customer service through its Branches. People need that one on one human contact to discuss their concerns and needs. Sadly ME Bank made the decision to close ALL of their Branches and now it is difficult to find out anything to do with accounts. ME Bank no longer offers incredible Interest rates like they used to and the difference in Interest rates offered now is minuscule to other financial institutions. I personally would not recommend them.

After deciding to apply for my first term deposit, I finally got around to it. I was however, startled to see that between submitting my application and it being approved, the interest rates had dropped! Naturally, I got on the phone to find out what had happened. After explaining the situation and spending a short time on hold, I was given my orignal, and higher interest rate. Very happy.

Great website and customer service makes setting up a term deposit with ME Bank easy. Only downside is that rollover is automatic so you have to be attuned to the maturity date if you want to access your funds.
