Mozo snapshot

Boasting an introductory variable rate of 1.10% for the first four months (on balances of up $250,000) and a base rate of 0.95% depending on your balance, the Macquarie Savings Account offers some highly competitive rates for different balances.

On top of all this, Macquarie's Savings Account scooped up not one, but two 2021 Mozo Experts Choice Awards! It received awards for best Kick Start Savings and best No Strings Savings Account.

Key features

Macquarie’s Savings Account could be ideal if you’re looking for a quick boost to your savings. For the first four months you’ll receive one of the highest introductory rates on the market at 1.10%, which is available on balances of up to $250,000. Balances above that figure will still receive an interest rate during the introductory period, but it will be one of the two below (depending on the balance).

And that’s not all, after the honeymoon period comes to an end Macquarie's Savings Account continues to offer competitive ongoing rates. Just be mindful the ongoing rate you receive will depend on your savings balance:

- Balances between $0-$250,000 will receive an interest rate of 0.95%

- Balances of $250,000 and above will receive an interest rate of 0.70%

Don’t like forking out for account keeping fees? The good news is that Macquarie’s Savings Account doesn’t cost a cent. Just keep in mind that you must have an existing Macquarie Transaction Account (or open one in your name) to qualify.

Who is it good for

Savers looking for a savings account that offers competitive rates without the strings attached (like regular or minimum deposits for instance).

Any catches

Keep in mind that the 1.10% introductory rate only applies to the first $250,000 deposited, meaning any additional funds in your account will accrue interest at the lower ongoing rate.
