Just six months after launching, neobank 86 400’s Save Account has scooped up a Mozo Experts Choice Award for best Regular Saver account!

If you’re wondering whether or not that’s a big deal - it is. Going strong since 2014, the purpose of the Mozo Experts Choice Awards is to highlight Aussie banking products with market-leading features and great value.

Our experts combed through reams of banking data to figure out which ones really do hold up to the giant, glitzy billboard advertising. In 2020, we compared over 500 personal banking products, from 80 different financial institutions to determine the winners across multiple categories. 

The Mozo Experts Choice Award for best Regular Saver account in particular, recognises savings accounts with the most competitive interest rates, which have been designed for savers who plan to squirrel money away on a regular basis and are willing to meet any conditions that may be required to achieve the maximum ongoing rate.

A smart banking app for your smartphone!

It’s no secret that we use our smartphones for almost everything these days, from fitness tracking, to jotting down notes and keeping an eye on our finances. In fact, according to a survey published by multinational professional services network Deloitte, 84% of Australians owned a smartphone in 2016.

It’s pretty much a given these days that your bank account will have an accompanying app, but neobanks like 86 400 take that one step further. That’s because these app-based banks are operated 100% digitally.

Similar to other neobanks, the minds behind 86 400 have designed an aesthetically pleasing banking app with a number of useful features. 

With the 86 400 banking app you can make instant transfers with money transfer service Osko, receive smart alerts for any upcoming bills or regular payments, get insights with external data integration and make mobile payments with Apple Pay, Google Pay, Samsung Pay, Fitbit Pay or Garmin Pay.
