Our Review

The St.George Express Freedom account is particularly suitable for people who prefer managing their finances online. For people who can manage their savings online the account enables them to track their transactions and avoid having to go to a branch every month to deposit money when they wish to contribute to their savings.

The internet banking platform for St.George is very convenient, intuitive and easy to understand and instead of having to pay your bills in person you can use this account to pay your bills electronically. Some landlords and delivery company’s for example now accept electronic payments, and it goes without saying that all major billers have an internet payment option. There is no longer any need to pay by cheque.

One of the best features of the online banking platform for the St.George Express Freedom account is the ability to make payments to anyone you like online. This means if you have borrowed money from family or friends, all you need is their account details and BSB number and you can you the Pay Anyone feature on the internet banking platform to transfer cash.

The big advantage with a transaction account that is primarily online is no matter how many transactions you make every month, they is always a record. Online transaction accounts will let you take advantage of some the wonderful internet only offers that are available as well as shop at online only stores.

The account comes with Visa debit card which provides great security for online transactions and unlike a credit card you are only using cash that you have available, and there is no need to worry about making monthly payments or being charged interest. There is a very low fixed monthly fee for which you get unlimited ATM and EFTPOS transactions.

The St.George Express Freedom account is a great online transaction account and an excellent way to stay on top of your monthly finances.
