One simple step to double your savings interest

From picking up a side hustle to giving up your daily coffee, there’s not a lot many Aussies won’t do to increase their savings. 

But if you’re not ready to give up your creamy Latte just yet, we may have some good news - news that could potentially double the interest you make on your savings. 

Let’s say you currently have a savings account that has the average ongoing rate in the Mozo database of 0.97% and decided to switch an account with the highest ongoing rate of 2.25% - by doing this, you’d automatically more than double your interest!

“It’s no secret that earning a decent return on your savings is getting harder by the day, but if you do your research and shop around you’ll find there still are a few accounts offering rates higher than 2.00%,” said Mozo Director, Kirsty Lamont. 

“There’s little point in sticking with an account with a dud rate, especially when you consider the fact that switching savings accounts isn’t a complicated process.” 

But where exactly can I find an account with a competitive rate you may ask? Allow us to introduce you to our 2020 Mozo Experts Choice Savings Accounts Awards^. 

Our Mozo Experts Choice Savings Account awards are designed to showcase savings accounts in the market that our expert judges believe to be worth their weight in gold. 

This year, they analysed 236 personal savings products from 77 financial institutions before selecting standout products in each category. 

Among this year winners were neobanks Up, 86 400 and Xinja, all of which boast an ongoing rate of 2.25%. 

“Up and 86 400 share a conditional 2.25% ongoing rate, so savers will need to meet certain conditions before you can earn that rate. Xinja’s rate on the other hand comes with no strings, meaning savers won’t need to do anything to earn the 2.25%,” said Lamont. 

Other banks that made it onto this year’s winners list included UBank, MOVE Bank, Heritage Bank and Rabobank.
