Key features

The Southern Cross Credit Union is offering a bonus interest rate of 5.10% p.a. with its Star Saver account. This rate is made up of a standard interest rate of 1.25% p.a. and a 'growth bonus rate' of 3.85% p.a. To achieve the full 5.10% p.a. interest rate, you will have to grow your savings account balance by at least $200 each month.

On top of this, the Southern Cross Credit Union Star Saver offers flexible features, such as the ability to make unlimited free transactions over the phone and via internet banking, so you won’t cop any pesky fee charges should you need to move your money around in your accounts.

While this account charges a $6.00 account fee, if you’re under the age of 21, or you maintain a $3,000 minimum account balance or you have at least a $30,000 total in deposits and/or loans with Southern Cross Credit Union this fee will be waived.
