The Detail

1. Bonus interest: payable for each month the account’s monthly closing balance (excluding interest), being the day after the last business day of the previous month to the last business day of the current month, has not fallen below zero and has grown compared to its opening balance as stipulated below. For customers aged 21 years and over: When you grow your account by at least $50 a month. For customers aged under 21 years: When you grow your account by $0.01 a month. (Please note, for joint accounts, both account holders must be under 21). Balance growth is dependent on a customer demonstrating savings behaviour – e.g. making a deposit into their savings account. Any increase in balances from interest earned doesn’t count towards balance growth. Customers should monitor their account balance if they make any withdrawals to make sure they maintain the minimum monthly balance growth required to qualify for bonus interest.
