Mozo Review   Citi Online Saver Review

Last updated: 15 March 2019.

What's hot:
  • Special intro rate of 2.90%

  • 2019 Mozo Experts Choice Award

  • No account fees and no minimum balance required

What's not:
  • Interest rate drops to 1.60% at the end of the intro period

Mozo snapshot:

The Citi Online Saver account offers exactly what we've come to expect from an online savings account - great interest rates, easy to setup with no account fees and no minimum balance requirements. Think this could be the treatment your hard earned savings deserve? Well according to the Mozo Expert Judges, it's certainly worth considering, because the Online Saver account took out a 2019 Mozo Experts Choice Award in the Kick Start Savings category.

Key features:

The most attractive feature of the Citi Online Saver account is the introductory rate of 2.90% for the first 4 months, one of the higher rates in the market. After the intro period, the rate drops to 1.60% on all balances but this is one of the best ongoing rates in the market and reason the account picked up the Experts Choice Award. Interest is calculated daily and paid into your account monthly. The Citi Online Saver account won't cost you a cent to own or maintain - it has no transaction fees, no account fees, and no fees for phone or Internet banking.

Who it's good for:

Unlike many other online savings accounts, where you also need to have a transaction account with the same bank, the Citi Online Saver account can be linked to any external bank account. This makes the Citi Online Saver account ideal for anyone looking to earn great interest on their savings, at least for the first 4 months.

Any catches?

The Citi Online Saver has one of the top intro savings rates at 2.90% but after 4 months, it drops to a lower ongoing rate of 1.60%. So, if you want to always be getting the best return for your money you might need to switch accounts again.
