What's not
  • Rate cut to 0.01% for early withdrawals
Mozo snapshot

If you’re looking to lock away some cash for a while with a term deposit, you’ll need an option that offers simplicity and a choice of terms to suit you. Introducing the Greater Bank Term Deposit, a hassle-free term deposit that can help hit your long term savings goals.

Key features

The Greater Bank Term Deposit can give you a secure return on your savings stash. For a one year term on a balance of $5,000, you’ll earn a 0.50% p.a. interest rate. As with most term deposits, generally speaking longer terms come with higher interest rates. If you lock in for 3 years, you can score a 0.80% p.a. rate or for 5 years a 1.00% p.a. rate.

Plus, there’s no fuss about having your interest paid to another bank. However, if you no longer want to keep the term deposit open after the term ends you will need to let Greater Bank know, as the account does roll over automatically.  

One thing you’ll need to keep in mind is that while there is no minimum notification for early termination, if you decide to withdraw your cash before the maturity date your rate will be reduced to a paltry 0.01%.

Who is it good for

The Greater Bank Term Deposit is a good choice for Aussies with at least $5,000 ready to be locked away and who won’t be tempted to withdraw the money early.

Any catches

Term deposits are designed to not be touched before the maturity date and if you are thinking about making a withdrawal, you will have your rate cut to 0.01%. If you think you may need to make regular withdrawals, you might want to consider a high interest savings account instead.
