With interest rates in Australia stuck at an all time low, getting the best value savings account is critical, whether you’re wanting to maximise your interest rate or reach your savings goal faster, 

With a heap of savings accounts to choose from, it can be daunting deciding which one is right for you. From minimum fees, to no account keeping fees, to high interest rates, our Mozo experts have put their heads together to work out which savings accounts do the best job of helping Aussies to meet their savings goals.

For our 2019 Mozo Experts’ Choice Awards, we compared savings accounts from 68 financial institutions to identify the best on the market. So if you’re on the lookout for somewhere to stash your loose change, here are three of this year's award winners to compare.

The Mozo Experts Choice Awards recognise products that deliver exceptional value or benefits to consumers. Our judges base their decision on hard-nosed calculations of value to the consumer, using Mozo’s extensive product database and research capacity.  Product providers don’t pay to be in the running and we don’t play favourites. Award winners may choose to purchase a licence to use their award in their own marketing and may choose to list products on the Mozo website in a way that may generate revenue for Mozo.

Mozo may receive advertising fees from the financial institutions, issuers of financial or credit products and third party advice providers that are shown on this page. These fees are based on a cost per click, cost per acquisition, or a fixed fee.
