Mozo Review   UBank USaver Review

Last updated: 11 October 2019.

What's hot:
  • 2019 Mozo Savings Bank of the Year

  • No fees

  • 1.04% standard interest rate

  • 2019 Mozo Experts Choice Award

What's not:
  • No special rate on balances over $200,000

Mozo snapshot:

The USaver from 2019 Mozo Savings Bank of the Year, UBank, has one of the highest base interest rates in the market at 1.04%. Coupled with no ongoing fees, it's hardly a surprise that the account impressed the Mozo judges so much as a great no strings attached savings option that they awarded it a 2019 Mozo Experts Choice Award.

Key features:

The UBank USaver is designed to make you save. There is a standard ongoing 1.04% interest rate, with interest calculated daily and paid monthly into your USaver account.

There are no monthly fees and no minimum balance requirements but the USaver isn't for multimillionaires. Balances over $5 million don't earn any interest.

Like most high interest savings accounts, the UBank USaver is 100% online so you don't have branch or ATM access. But who needs it when you have a paperless application process and access to phone and online customer service 24/7? UBank is backed by NAB and deposits up to $250,000 are covered under the Government deposit guarantee.

One of the cool features of the USaver account is that if you have more than one savings goal you can split your savings into savings buckets. Say you have a short term goal for the end of the year holiday, and another long term goal of saving for a home deposit. You can separate nicknamed savings objectives to make it easy to focus on your goal and remember what you're saving for.

Who it's good for:

If you like the idea of paperless banking, this account is for you. The application process is quick and totally online and you can receive your statements direct into your inbox.

It also has a great account for anyone who likes to set savings goals and get rewarded for their hard work with a high ongoing interest rate.

Any catches?

There are better interest rates available for conditional bonus savings accounts and some term deposits such as the USaver with Ultra Transaction account that pays 2.10% interest if you link and deposit $200 a month into the account.

    Great service and ease of use.

    Always had great experience with Ubank. Only con was when they added cards to accounts. I liked the fact it was purely an online bank originally. But apart from that, it's been great!

    Outstanding online banking services!

    The customer service within the branch is fantastic. The staff who greet you are incredibly knowledgable and always know where to direct you and aim to get you served as soon as possible. The online banking portal "Netbank" is simple to use and incredibly cohesive. I have multiple accounts and travel cards and they have made it so easy for funds to be transferred between each of these.

About UBank

UBank is a new direct bank which is backed by NAB, one of Australia's big four banks. UBank launched in 2008 with a competitive term deposit product, which customers can apply for and manage online. As a direct bank, UBank doesn't have a branch network but it does have a 24-hour, seven day a week 'person to person' phone banking centre for those wanting to speak to a real person. Cost savings are passed onto customers in the form of higher rates and lower fees. UBank now has a range of competitive term deposits, super and savings accounts. In 2011, it launched UHomeloan for refinancing its first home loan product.
