Mozo Review   Bank of Melbourne Term Deposit Review

Last updated: 16 October 2019.

What's hot:
  • 1.20% interest for 6 month term

  • Up to 1.30% interest for 5 year term

What's not:
  • 31 days notice for early withdrawal

Mozo snapshot:

If you’re looking for a secure way to grow your savings stash and snag a great return, look no further. The Bank of Melbourne Term Deposit has both good interest rates on short term accounts with 1.20% interest for 6 month deposits, or longer periods, like the 1.30% interest after 5 years, when you have your interest paid half-yearly. The account also has the option for automatic rollover, renewal or exit at the end of the term and you can opt to have the interest paid into an account at another bank.

Key features:

The Bank of Melbourne Term Deposit has a range of terms on offer, with different interest rates depending on how long you lock away your cash, and when you want to have your interest paid.

A 5 year term with interest paid annually offers a 1.30% interest rate. There’s also a number of shorter term loans, that have solid interest rates as well: 3 months pays 1.30% interest, 6 months pays 1.20% and 1 year pays 1.30%.

You’ll also have the option to have your plan automatically rollover, or you can choose to close the account and cash in your hard earned interest.

The Bank of Melbourne Term Deposit gives you the option of having your interest paid into an account at another bank and you can choose between having your interest paid either monthly, yearly or at maturity.

To get a term deposit you’ll need to deposit at least $1,000, but you won’t be able to deposit anymore than $250,000.

Who it's good for:

Term deposits are great for anyone who has a chunk of cash they know they aren’t going to touch and want to earn safe, easy, fee-free high interest. The Bank of Melbourne is suitable to long terms savers or those after a short term boost on their rainy day fund.

Any catches?

If you decide you want to withdraw your money from the term deposit account, you’ll have to give 31 days, notice you’ll also find the interest you earn drop significantly. So early withdrawals should be avoided if at all possible.

    Love the fact that my money isn't locked away for the term and even if I make withdrawals, the interest rate is unaffected. Besides, every few monthly intervals, I can negotiate the interest rate for extension of term deposit. Very happy!

    Great customer service, explaining options. Fixed term deposit rate wasn't great but now interest rates have dropped further. OK at 4.5% over 12 months!

    I was looking for great interest rates, I contacted numerous banks and this one not only provided those, but also took the time to explain all the details (it was the first time that I decided on term deposits). It was easy and pleasant.
