Key features

The Commonwealth Bank Term Deposit is flexible as it gives you the option have your interest paid either every 28 days, 6 months, annually or at maturity, depending on the length of their term period. You can also choose to have your interest paid into a different bank of your choosing once your account reaches maturity.

With fixed interest rates starting at 0.10% p.a for a 1-month term, ranging up to 0.85% p.a for a 10 month term or 1.00% for a term of 5 years (for deposits containing $50,000 to $1,999,999), the Commonwealth Bank Term Deposit account could be exactly what you need. 

This term deposit also has an automatic rollover option for customers who want to extend their term past maturity. Just make sure you check the new deal is still competitive before letting it roll over.

Any catches

If you withdraw your funds before your term deposit reaches maturity, you’ll be charged additional fees, including a $30.00 administration fee, plus, you won’t earn the full amount of interest. Interest rates also vary quite significantly depending on how much money you deposit in your account, so make sure you double check the fine print.

    Not the best interest rates for long term deposit

    Many mistakes when the account was set up. I am not sure if I would use the bank again. Only part which I liked was an internet banking which is easy to use.
