After failing to secure a account online, I emailed customer services, they were unhelpful and blunt.... you MUST have a mobile phone.... I do not need or own a mobile phone I am computer savvy and use a PC for all my services and transactions since 1985. Before your precious cell phones existed. A secure fire wall protects me on my PC, nothing protects your data on a cell phone and the airwaves. As the advertised interest rate was the best available I eventually decided to obtain a "smart phone" (even though it was mainly useless to me (deaf)) and try to invest a $250,000 parcel with this so called bank for a couple of years..... Again this was a BIG fail as online services failed on 2 occasions to recognise my CORRECT data of licence and medicare values . I at this point paused the input and this was yesterday. Today I am writing this review in hope that enough people will read it to GET THE WARNING... stay away from this institution, do NOT believe in the false ratings of CANSTAR they have to be on their payroll..... It is too obvious that they want your details to try to hack your original bank accounts or worse.... your identity... - Be warned. They will not be getting my investment.More Judo Bank term deposit customer reviews
Not just this bank but all banks as far as interest on principal is concerned. All my life I have paid interest on mortgages ect at rates far in excees of interest rates now. Now when I need to live on my interest on my term deposits I can't. The Reserve Bank is bowing to pressure from Government and the new generations coming through to support their high-end like styles and bugger the rest. All this 'must have now' attitude is killing this country. We had to scrimp and save to buy things that the generation now are not prepared to wait and save for. Way things are going it is making it so easy for countries like Chine to come in and take over our country without the majority of people realising it. As hard as it was liveing through the higher interest rate periods I still think I and oy=thers of my age lived through the best of times and i feel sorry for the people who will wake up with huge debts when interest rates eventuall go up again albeit though not in my life time. So I dislike all the major banks as they are the main cause of our prblems now.
The bank is doing great in its customer service with great efficiency and communication. I highly recommend the employees called Joe (maybe I spell wrongly) and Alexander.More ANZ term deposit customer reviews
This bank is discriminatory against anyone who chooses not to own a mobile phone or is deaf as myself and cannot use a mobile phone. I find it unacceptable as email and a landline (wife) options are open to present codes for identification and are used (email) for past decade by my current banks. I would not be even bothering commenting on this so called bank if it were not for the interest rate being offered at this time.More Judo Bank term deposit customer reviews
This bank gave the best interest rates for my term deposits. It was very easy to join. Unfortunately interest rates have fallen but Judo give the best rates that I can find.
I was recently with CUA as I was extremely hopeful that it would be a good bank to deal with, but after a week I left and was charged $20 after 5 days being with them. I was first told I'd receive a certain rate over the phone by a saleswoman, so it took me a day to transfer everything into CUA. Then the next day I spoke to another person and they had no records that I spoke to someone, even though I presented screenshots of my mobile that I spoke to someone there - they didn't believe me. Then they said they had to investigate and both phone service person, online and a bank manager told me they'd get back to me the next day. After 2 days of calling, leaving messages. A 2nd person got back to me but it was too late, I received a better rate from another bank and then decided to leave after 4 days of being run around. I was unfortunately charged $20 for being with them under 5 days.More Great Southern Bank term deposit customer reviews

I like St George Bank because it takes special care of its members. The term deposit rate offered was very competitive compared to the big 4. The pros is that their customer service is excellent and i honestly do not have any negative points about this bank.More St.George term deposit customer reviews
ATMs often out of order, branch staff try to guide me to use ATMs when trying to conduct personal banking and allow me to use teller staff when I insist!More Commonwealth Bank term deposit customer reviews
I made two attempts to open a term deposit on-line with this lot. First attempt was slow as the flotilla of intrusive questions had me searching for various documents. I was logged out on the 7th page of the questions with the software claiming that there "...was no activity for an extended period...". None of my input was saved! I gritted my teeth and restarted and I was really quick this time. On the 7th page the moronic software again claimed that there was "...no activity for an extended period...", and logged me off. This was absolute nonsense. Never again. I logged on to Judo Bank and invested my money there without a problem in just a few minutes.
Make wondering whether their Term Deposit rates are a scam after all. Their advertised rates are the highest I could find - but their a glitch - you can't open one. This level of incompetence, or misleading advertising really frustrates me.
Best rates! But, what's the trickery with interest "paid at maturity" on a 3 year term deposit? Later in the text it says I can select monthly, yearly etc. payout. Are you seriously trying to trick customers out of Compound Interest? and if so, are you then misrepresenting the interest rate? Maybe it's time to review your offers and write some clear product details.
I have tried on several occasions to open a term deposit given their excellent rates. Their online system continually puts me in a loop and I can't finish my application. Customer service are very patient while you go through the whole process with them holding on the line, then when you end up in the loop again they say , oh yes we have been having some online issues lately, i will need to put a service request into our it area and someone will give you a call. The first time I was told they are really busy and i would need to wait about 4 weeks, the second time they told me it was going to be 1 week, next Thursday. And yes someone will call you, we have your phone number. In the meantime I keep getting emails telling me I havent finished setting up my login.. The system wont let me finish setting up my login. And I still havent heard from the IT unit. If its this hard to get your money into the judo bank imagine how hard it could be to get it back. Unhappy non customer.More Judo Bank term deposit customer reviews
When they visit a branch people do not want to be kept waiting in line for so long. For god's sake put another staff member on. It's not all about profits, there is service which this bank seems to be lacking. I recently went to a branch and they had people waiting out the door, two tellers on all other staff were in group talking. Not a good look.More NAB term deposit customer reviews
