Mozo snapshot

The big green dragon has breathed a lot of interest into the online savings account market with the St.George Maxi Saver. This savings account has an special intro rate of 0.90% (3 months only), no account fees, no minimum monthly balance or deposit requirements, and unlimited transactions online or over the phone.

Key features

The St.George Maxi Saver account is a worthy contender in the online savings account stakes! The special rate of 0.90% is available for first 3 months to customers opening a new Maxi Saver account for the first time, the rate then reverts back to on ongoing 0.05%. Account holders get unlimited free transactions online and over the phone giving you the freedom to move your money around as you please, without feeling the slap of high transaction fees.

Interest is paid into your savings account monthly. And if you want a little help regularly saving the St.George Maxi Saver has an excellent savings plan, where you can schedule regular payments through Internet banking.

Who is it good for

This savings account is a great choice for savers looking to stash their cash temporarily and are comfortable with switching accounts regularly.

Any catches

While online and phone banking are free with the Maxi Saver there is still a $2.50 over the counter withdrawal fee. Keep in mind that you also need to have a St.George working account to be able to open a St.George Maxi Saver.

    They look after me.

    I have dealt with St George for a number of years. They have always offered the best interest rates on personal loans. They were extremely helpful with my home loan. They explain all the pros and cons. I recommend St George to people I know all the time.
