Mozo Review   Newcastle Permanent Smart Saver Review

Last updated: 16 September 2019.

What's hot:
  • 2.55% special interest rate for under 25s

  • 2019 Mozo Experts Choice Award

  • Two free withdrawals per month

  • No monthly account fees

What's not:
  • 0% interest rate if conditions aren’t met

Mozo snapshot:

With a seriously tempting special interest rates of 1.90% on offer (and 2.55% for savers under 25), the Newcastle Permanent Smart Saver Account will help you reach your savings goal as quickly as possible. Throw in zero monthly account fees and free internet banking and you’ve got a savings account that will give accounts from competitor banks a run for their money.

It certainly impressed the Mozo judges, with the Smart Saver Account (for under 25's) taking out a 2019 Mozo Experts Choice Award in the Pocket Money Regular Saver category.  

Key features:

The Newcastle Permanent Smart Saver Account offers a special interest rate of 1.90% as long as you grow the balance of the account by at least $150 a month, otherwise you’ll receive no interest at all.

If you're under 25 it's an even sweeter deal - you’ll need to grow your balance by just $10 a month, to score a 2.55% special interest rate.

Unlike many other online savers you’ll be given the flexibility of making up to two withdrawals each month. Just make you stay under two though, because you won’t receive the bonus interest rate if you exceed that.

With no monthly account keeping costs and free internet banking you also won’t have to worry about fees eating away at your interest.

You’ll also receive a Newcastle Permanent Visa Debit card to use with your account so you’ll be able to tap and go using Visa payWave and be protected under Visa’s Zero Liability policy. However, account holders must be over the age of 16 to apply for the card. 

Who it's good for:

The Newcastle Permanent Smart Saver Account is good for savers young and old who are able to increase their account balance each month in order to reach the special interest rate.

Any catches?

As with most savings accounts, the Smart Saver isn’t made for ATM withdrawals, as a $0.60 ATM fee applies for cash withdrawals within the Newcastle Permanent ATM network.
