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 a fiery hot special rate of 2.85%, 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 2.85% is for the first 3 months for customers opening a new Maxi Saver account for the first time, the rate then reverts back to on ongoing 0.50%. 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 it's good for:

This savings account is perfect for anyone who wants a flexible savings account with a high interest rate.

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.
