Mozo Review   RAMS Saver Account Review

Last updated: 17 March 2020.

What's hot:
  • 1.65% bonus interest when you make no withdrawals, $200 monthly deposit

  • Absolutely no fees

What's not:
  • Online only, no branch or phone banking

Mozo snapshot:

RAMS, known for its low rate home loans, has charged into the high interest savings account market with the RAMS Saver, offering a competitive 1.65% ongoing interest rate, if you don't make any withdrawals and deposit at least $200 each month.

Key features:

There are no fees attached to the account and no minimum balance requirements but the bonus rate can only be applied to accounts with balances up to $500,000.

While you'll receive a decent 1.65% interest rate if you stick to the above conditions, if you don't you'll only get the standard interest rate at a low 0.90%. 

One of the great features of the RAMS Saver account is the pay anyone functionality. Many online only savings accounts make you transfer funds to a nominated transaction account but with the RAMS Saver you can make bill payments or transfer funds to any Australian bank account. You can also transfer between existing RAMS accounts.

Who it's good for:

The RAMS Saver is great savings account for anyone who wants a simple to manage, competitive ongoing rate on their savings stash. The RAMS Saver doesn't have the tricks and traps of other online savings accounts where you get high interest for a few short months and then a much lower ongoing rate. Sure there's an incentive not to touch that money but at least if you do, you know you're not going to lose out badly on interest.

Any catches?

This is an online only account so you won't have access to phone or branch banking but this shouldn't be a problem for most people, plus if you get into trouble or forget passwords, there is the Australian-based customer service on hand to help out!

    Can not trust them.

    RAMS are simply not trustworthy. There are things in their T’s and C’s which should be candidly stated elsewhere but are not. For example if you exceed $500k in the account you don’t get paid bonus interest on any of your savings at all - not just the amount over 500. Especially when you open up an account and put that money in straight up, you’d reckon someone would have told you that. I hate to think what else is surreptitiously hidden in their t’s and c’s.

    Great bonus interest rate for savings account

    It was really easy to set up the saver account and it has a great bonus interest rate. The only downside that I can see is that you only get the bonus interest if you have no withdrawals during the month. It would be more useful if you had, say, 2 free withdrawals each month that didn't affect the bonus interest rate.
