Mozo Review   UBank Term Deposit Review

Last updated: 10 October 2019.

What's hot:
  • 2019 Mozo Experts Choice Savings Bank of the Year

  • 2019 Mozo Experts Choice Winner

  • 1.70% p.a. for a 6 month term

  • 0.10% loyalty bonus at renewal

What's not:
  • 31 days notice needed to access deposit prior to maturity

Mozo snapshot:

With no fees, competitive interest rates and a loyalty bonus at renewal, the UBank Term Deposit really does deliver value for Aussies looking to stash away their cash for a year or less. Would you expect anything else from the 2019 Mozo Experts Choice Savings Bank of the Year? 

Also a 2019 Mozo Experts Choice Winner in the Short Term Deposit category, savers can make the most of a 1.70% p.a. interest rate by locking away their cash for between three and eight months.

Key features:

Brought to you by the Mozo Experts Choice Savings Bank of the Year for 2018, you can be sure you’re getting a good deal on your savings stash with UBank’s Term Deposit. Arguably its most distinguishing feature, the 0.10% loyalty bonus that is added onto your deposit at renewal means you have the chance to build your interest rate over the long term.

You’ll have the option to have the interest, which is paid at maturity, paid into another bank at no additional cost and if you’re happy with the rate you’re earning, simply sit back and let the automatic renewal feature do its thing.

If you want to get started you’ll need an initial sum of at least $1,000 to kick things off, but serious savers will be able to deposit as much as $2 million.

Who it's good for:

Aussie savers on the lookout for a competitive set of fixed interest rates without having to commit their money for years on end can benefit from UBank’s Short Term Deposit. It’s a particularly good option for digital dwellers who are comfortable managing their money online or over the phone because UBank is an online only, branchless bank.

Any catches?

Aside from the maximum investment of $2 million, just be aware that you’ll need to give UBank a months notice if you want to access your cash before your deposit matures.

    Had term deposit mature in August. Two further term deposits maturing in September and October suffered from two separate interest rate decreases whilst there was no movement in the cash rate. Wrote - but no reply! Very disappointed after four years.

    You get the best term deposit rates with this bank every time without worrying. Due to only being online there are no fees. This reduces costs. This concerned me at first but having been with them several years now they are trustworthy and very reliable to deal with. However, if you couldn't access a computer for some reason this could be cause for concern. This way of banking is not for everyone.
