Mozo snapshot

Not only does the Active Saver account have a competitive bonus interest rate, with no account fees it also makes it easier for Australians to keep growing their savings. You can score a 1.50% ongoing bonus rate when you don't make any withdrawals and deposit at least $250 each month from a linked Australian Unity transaction account.

Key features

For Australians looking for a more rewarding place to stash their savings, Australian Unity’s Active Saver account ticks a lot of boxes – especially with a 1.50% ongoing bonus rate. To access the rate, savers will need to deposit at least $250 each month into the account without making any withdrawals, otherwise they’ll receive the standard rate of 0.25% instead.

With no minimum account balance and a maximum balance of $500,000, the Active Saver is open to both those at the start of their savings journey or for those who want to earn some serious interest on their existing nest egg. Just keep in mind that if you’re balance does tick over $500,000, the exceeding portion of the balance will only earn interest at the standard rate of 0.25%.

If you like your banking to be straightforward you'll also love the lack of account fees, as well as the option to use either phone or internet banking, though you won’t have any branch access with this account.

Who is it good for

The Australian Unity Active Saver account could be a great option for savers over 16 who are happy to put a regular deposit away in return for a high interest rate, though it’s not for those who like to dip in and out of their savings.

Any catches

To earn the bonus interest rate of 1.50% you’ll need to deposit at least $250 (without making any withdrawals) each month from a linked Australian Unity Transaction Account.
