Stash your cash and reap in the rewards! The 2.55% bonus rate is available for the first three months for new accounts. After the bonus rate period, the interest rate drops to 0.50%. Interest is calculated daily and paid into your account on a monthly basis.
You'll have to do all your transactions through phone or internet banking with the ANZ Online Saver as there is no ATM card or branch access. But the upshot to this is you'll never be slugged with transaction and account fees. Unlike many other online savings accounts where you have to transfer funds to a linked account to pay bills, the ANZ Online Saver features Bpay functionality so you can do all your banking direct from the account.
You can even open multiple ANZ Online Saver accounts under one name if you're keen to save for a number of goals. Since no minimum deposit amount is required, this means that you can whip out your wish list and tick each one off as the interest earnings come in.
Who it's good for:
If you're looking for a high interest savings account that lets you save for multiple goals, your cash will find itself right at home with the ANZ Online Saver.
The 2.55% introductory interest rate is only offered to new ANZ customers. You'll also need to open an everyday ANZ bank account in order to access the funds in your ANZ Online Saver account.
