Mozo snapshot:

If you’re a dedicated saver, then you need to check out the CUA eSaver E xtra savings account. This account features a competitive 2.90% special rate for balances up to $750,000, and a standard rate of 0.50%. To get the special rate, savers need to deposit a minimum of $250 and make no withdrawals each month. There are also no account keeping fees and no minimum balance required.

Key features:

The CUA eSaver Extra is a savings account designed for the most disciplined savers. If you deposit at least $250 every month and make no withdrawals, you’ll receive the special rate of 2.90% (0.50% standard rate). Once you open a CUA eSaver Extra account, you will need to make a minimum opening deposit of at least $1 but after that there’s no minimum balance to keep the account.

There are no account keeping fees, plus unlimited access to internet and phone transactions. And if you want to take your saving to new heights, you can sign up to the CUA top up service, where for every $10 you spend on your Visa Debit or rediCARD, you can choose a top up amount between 50 cents and $5 to be automatically deposited into your CUA savings account.

However, there is no ATM access with this savings account and keep in mind you’ll lose the bonus rate if you make a withdrawal.

Who it's good for:

The CUA eSaver Extra account is a great choice for savers determined to build their savings pile, who can avoid making any withdrawals.

Any catches?

While the CUA eSaver Extra account offers a competitive 2.90% interest rate, savers will have their rate cut if they fail to meet the requirements (deposit at least $250 a month and make no withdrawals).
