Mozo snapshot

The ING Savings Maximiser has a standard variable interest rate of 0.05%, but if you have a linked Orange Everyday Account, deposit at least $1,000 a month from an external source (e.g. your salary) and make at least 5 settled card purchases  each month, you'll get a bonus rate of 1.30% (or 1.35% in total) which will put you in the right direction to maximise those precious savings. 

Plus, this account even picked up a 2021 Mozo Experts Choice Award for best Regular Saver!

Key features

The combination of no account fee and a generous ongoing bonus rate could make ING's Saving Maximiser a rewarding place to stash your savings. Keep in mind the bumper 1.35% bonus variable rate is only available when you also have an Orange Everyday bank account and hit the following monthly requirements: 

  • Deposit at least $1,000+ from an external account into an eligible ING account 
  • Make five card purchases each month (which are settled) 
  • Grow the balance of the account each calendar month (not including interest)

One of the other handy features about the account is the round up tool. Users can set up their desired round up figure to the nearest $1 or $5, then every time they make a purchase the difference will be deposited into their savings. For example, a $3.50 coffee will be rounded up to $4 and that 50c difference will be automatically deposited into savings.  

Prefer to do your banking on your smartphone? You're in luck! You'll be able to transfer money into your Savings Maximiser with ease thanks to the ING banking app.

Who is it good for

The Savings Maximiser has an eligibility requirement of 13 years and over, so with that in mind, it could be prove a competitive account for both teenagers and adults to grow their savings balances - as long as they're able to meet the monthly deposit requirements.

Any catches

Bear in mind that the maximum bonus rate of 1.35% only applies on balances of up to $100,000 and balances over that figure will receive the base rate of 0.05%. So if you've got a much larger savings balance, you may want to compare other savings accounts with higher thresholds.
