Mozo snapshot

Want a savings account with one of the highest interest rates in the market that's free of the bite of fees? Well, the ME Online Savings Account could be for you!

Not only will you receive a generous 1.80% interest rate but you'll pay $0 account keeping and transaction fees. It's no wonder the ME Online Savings Account was named as a winner of a 2020 Mozo Experts Choice Award in the best Regular Saver category.

Just keep in mind, to receive that 1.80% rate you'll need to link your Online Savings Account to ME's EveryDay Transaction Account, and make four monthly "tap and go" purchases using its Buck debit card.

Key features

The ME Bank Online Savings Account really is a great value product. The standard interest rate is 0.10%, which has no conditions attached, so you can simply deposit your money into the account and set and forget. But why would you do that when there is a competitive 1.80% interest rate up for grabs? 

All you need to do to nab that rate is open ME's Everyday Transaction Account and link it to your Online Savings Account. When you open the transaction account you'll receive a Buck debit card and as long as you make four tap and go purchases each month, the 1.80% interest rate will be applied to your Online Savings Account. 

Other features of the savings account include, fee free transactions online and over the phone. And just like most savings accounts, no ATM access is included in the Online Savings Account. But that's what you have the Everyday Transaction Account for, right?

Who is it good for

The ME Bank Online Savings Account is great for anyone looking for a competitive bonus rate on their savings account to grow their money.

Any catches
Bear in mind, if you're jetsetting overseas and don't make a weekly "tap and go" purchase with the Buck debit card within Australia for that month you won't receive the high 1.80% interest rate.

    Great bank with no fees and great service.

    Great bank with great rates and customer service. Can use pretty much most ATMs without incurring a fee (for the linked everyday transaction account). Online banking is easy and simple to use. Call centre is Australian and they're great. One of my favourite banks.

    Good interest rates.

    ME bank offers bonus interest over all their savings accounts under the one name. Haven't had any issues with their customer service. One fraud transaction was handled smoothly with the money refunded to my account. Internet banking app is a little slow but nothing that would make me want to change banks.

    Great customer service but frustrating phone app

    I transferred to ME because of their excellent savings account interest rate, and found during the application process that their staff were just as impressive. Unfortunately I found their phone app to be clunky and limited compared to other banks which was frustrating as I prefer to use my phone for all my banking, and that combined with the drop in savings interest rate forced me to look elsewhere. In saying that I couldn't recommend their staff more highly, and overall they were one of the best banks I've been with.
