Better banking tools to manage your money
When you get paid your money goes in here and you move what you expect your bills to cost into your Bills account ... what's still in your Spend account is what you can can spend.
The place to put the money for your expected costs each month. Set-up direct debits (or PayTos) from here or use BPay to pay the bills when they roll on in. Secure banking tools and automatic alerts are included to help you keep track of ins and outs.
At the end of the month move what's left in your other accounts into your Savings account (2% p.a. interest) and if that's $100 or more and you make no withdrawals... you qualify for 2.50% p.a. +Bonus interest up to a $250,000 balance. That means you can now earn 4.50% p.a. interest on your regular, at call, savings account.
