Smart eSaver

An online savings account that rewards you for every month you don't make a withdrawal.

Benefits

Savings incentive

Enjoy the bonus interest rate for every month you make no withdrawals.

Pair with your everyday account

You'll need a Bankwest transaction account to open a Smart eSaver.

Flexibility

No minimum monthly deposit required.

How it works

The Smart eSaver rewards you for leaving your savings alone to grow. No monthly account maintenance fees apply to this account.

Before you can set up a Smart eSaver, you'll need to have a Bankwest transaction account open in your name, which will be linked to your Smart eSaver. Monthly maintenance fees may apply to the linked account.

For every month you don’t touch your savings, you’ll earn a Variable Smart rate. Interest is calculated at the applicable rate on the portion of the balance which falls within each of the tiers outlined below.

For every month you do make a withdrawal, you'll receive our standard variable interest rate (currently 0.01% p.a.).
