Our Review

If you are someone who is looking to set up a term deposit with just a small amount that will let you grow your savings over time then you may want to consider the BankSA term deposit account. You have automatic reinvestment options that allows you to choose from between one month to five years and with a minimum investment of just $1,000 there is something available for everyone.

The big advantage with the term deposit is the guaranteed rate of return you can earn on your investment.  Of all the various types of bank accounts in the market it is the term deposit that offered the highest rates of interest available. The disadvantage is you have to lock in your deposit for the agreed period of time. This means for example if you choose a term deposit of five years, then you have to hold your deposit for five years to be able to earn the interest rate that was advertised. This is a small price to pay for a guaranteed return on investment considering all the volatility that occurs in global financial markets.

Another big advantage with this account is the lack of paperwork. You don’t receive a monthly statement because there is no need for one, since this account is not meant for transactions. You receive a confirmation certificate once you open an account and every time the deposit is rolled over. If you want to know how much interest you have earned or you want to know when the deposit matures you can do so either by phone or using internet banking 24 hours a day seven days a week.
