If you’re a keen saver who loves the convenience of mobile banking, then you might want to check out the Saver Account from the Aussie neobank Up. The account allows you earn a competitive interest rate with no account fees, plus there's several super useful app features which can help you build up your savings stash such as round-ups and payment splitting.

With Up, you don't need to have separate savings accounts. You can have muliple savers for different savings goals and as long as you meet the standard criteria each month, you'll earn the bonus rate on all balances.

Key features

Banking has never looked more modern and easy than with the Up Saver Account which features a special rate of 4.35% for balances between $0 - $1,000,000 when you make five successful card purchases each month through the linked Up Everyday Account. Just keep in mind that if you don't meet this condition, there's no base rate, so you won't earn any interest on your balance.

The Up Saver Account comes with a number useful perks. The first being that you can set up different savers within the app and all will earn the bonus rate as long as you meet the monthly criteria. This is super handy if you have short and long term savings goals as it makes then easier to track and manage.

If you like the idea of building up your savings without having to actively manage your accounts, there's also the optional roundup feature. Every time you make a purchase with the linked transaction account, the App will automatically round it up to the nearest whole dollar before transferring the difference to your linked Saver Account.

You can also take advantage of the split payments feature. You might have different long and short term savings goals so this feature will split your regular savings payments across the savers in whatever percentage you like. 

If you are often tempted by impulse buying, there's even a block feature within the App which will block access to the account for 3 hours (just long enough for you to think things through) - but you can also nominate a 'mate' who has keys to the account and can unlock it for you if needed.  

If you are thinking of opening a Up Saver Account, just bear in mind that there is no branch or phone access and customers can only access the account through the iOS or Android app.

Who is it good for

For Aussie savers who like to keep everything they do through their mobile, then the Up Saver Account is a top pick, especially if they can meet the monthly account conditions and make use of the handy tools and features.

Any catches

The Up Saver Account can only be accessed through the iOS or Android app, so if you prefer to bank with providers that allow you to walk into a branch or use a desktop platform, then you may want to consider other accounts.
