Mozo Review   Police Bank Dynamo Kids Savings Account Review

Last updated: 1 March 2020.

What's hot:
  • 2020 Mozo Experts Choice Award

  • 2.30% maximum rate

  • Zero monthly account fees

What's not:
  • $2 over the counter withdrawal fee

Mozo snapshot:

Looking for an award-winning account built to help introduce kids to the idea of regular saving? With a maximum rate up to 2.30% and no account fees to worry about, the Police Bank Dynamo Kids Savings Account could prove the right match. Plus if you need more convincing, the account even took out a 2020 Mozo Experts Choice Award for best Pocket Money Regular Saver!

Key features:

With the Dynamo Kids Savings Account, there are a few different interest rates young savers will be able to earn on their money depending on their balance and the regularity of their deposits. Here’s the breakdown: 

  • $0-$499: Savers will earn a base interest rate of 0.25% on their balances, or a maximum interest rate of 1.55% if they deposit at least $20 and make no withdrawals in the month

  • $500 and above: Savers will earn a base interest rate of 1.00% on their balances, or a maximum interest rate of 2.30% if they deposit at least $20 and make no withdrawals in the month

Savers also won’t have their savings balances eaten up with any pesky costs like monthly account fees or fees to deposit money over the counter in a branch, however, there is a $2 charge to withdraw any funds over the counter. 

Just remember that this is purely a savings account without an attached eftpos or debit card, so kids won’t be able to withdraw their savings at an ATM or use them to make purchases.

Who it's good for:

The Dynamo Kids Savings Account from Police Bank could be a great savings option for young savers who can keep up regular contributions to their account in order to hit that maximum 2.30% maximum rate. Just be aware that once a savings balance hits $50,000, any balance above this will earn 0% interest. 

Any catches?

This account is only available for children up to the age of 13. Once they turn 13, the Dynamo Kids Savings Account will automatically switch to a Flex Account.
