MyState Bank Term Deposit Review

Rates and fees information correct as at 13 December 2018.

Review published: 10 August 2018

What's hot:

  • 2.70% interest for 1 year term

  • Option to have interest paid at regular intervals

  • Can have interest paid into any bank account

What's not:

  • No term period longer than 2 years

Mozo snapshot:

If you’re looking for a low risk way to earn a high interest rate in the short term, then you may want to consider a MyState Bank Term Deposit. MyState Bank offers great short term interest rates, such as 2.50% interest for 3 month terms and 2.70% interest for 1 year terms. There are a couple of different account options so you can choose the one that’s right for you, but keep in mind, they don’t offer any term periods longer than 2 years.

Key features:

MyState Bank Term Deposits are only available for terms of up to 2 years, but these short term rates are definitely worth checking out for the generous return on your savings. Especially take note of the 2.50% interest for a 3 month term and the 2.70% interest for a 1 year term, with the maximum interest earning capping at 2.80% for a 2 year term.

MyState Bank offers a couple different account options for their term deposits. First there’s the standard Term Deposit, and for technophiles, the Online Term Deposit account is much the same, but it needs to be opened and managed online.

These both differ slightly from MyState Bank Income Term Deposit, which lets you have your interest  regularly deposited into your bank account, instead of waiting for the term deposit to mature.

With all of these options, you’ll have the option to have your interest paid into an account at MyState Bank, or with a different bank completely. This gives your interest earnings more flexibility to fit your saving desires.

You can also set up your account to automatically rollover once the term period is up. This will also happen if you don’t give instructions for what happens when your term deposit matures, but you may find yourself with a lower interest rate, as the market varies MyState Bank Term Deposits interest rate might change. So make sure you let the bank know your wishes before the maturity date rolls around.

Who it's good for:

As the MyState Bank Term Deposit has a number of high interest short term options, those wanting a quick boost to their savings, especially anyone  looking for 3 or 4 month terms will be able to snag a bumper return on their stash.

Any catches?

If you do decide to go with the Income Term Deposit, you’ll find that you can only get 1 or 2 year loan periods, and their interest rates are slightly lower than their Term Deposit counterparts.

Very friendly staff in local branch who are always willing to listen and help. Will match interest rates from other institutions to give you best possible return and will waver other incurred costs if they are not your fault. Always available on their own phone line so you can avoid attempting to work through the frustrating call centre.
