Our Review

If you are serious about saving money then the BankSA Maxi Saver could be suited for you. This is because the only fees BankSA charges is a fee for using ATM’s that are not part of the Westpac network, there is a fee is you request a statement and a foreign currency conversion charge and that is it.

To be able to access balances held in your Maxi Saver account, the account must be linked to a transaction account that is eligible. The transaction account must be held with BankSA and can be used to withdraw and deposit cash when necessary.

Aside from not being hit with fees every time you wish to transact in one way or the other there is a competitive rate of interest that is offered with this account that lets savers earn returns on every dollar that is deposited. You can even set up an automatic savings plan and have money deposited in the account automatically which means your savings earn interest well before you have even had the chance to spend it.

Access to funds is of course 24/7. You can simply walk into any BankSA branch or use the internet or telephone completely free of charge but do remember if you make a withdrawal from an ATM overseas you will but hit by the foreign currency conversion charge of 3%.

In Australia you can withdraw cash completely free of charge through the Westpac network including Westpac, Bank of Melbourne, and St. George.
