You pay no monthly fees. Your savings are all yours as you work your way towards Christmas.

Out of sight

To keep you on track, your account is locked for saving until 1 November. It stays open until 31 January.

Emergency access

No worries if you need your money before 1 November, you can access it by contacting us. A $2.50 fee applies.

More than one

Feel free to set up more than one Christmas Saver if you’ve got different groups you’re buying pressies for.

Best-in-class security

Know your money is safe with card controls, security alerts and more.

Instant transfers

Over the festive season, you can move money instantly in the app or internet banking.

Round up to save more

Here’s how it works. When you buy something, you can choose to round up the amount to the nearest dollar, and the difference is sent to your savings account. Like putting coins (remember them?) in a jar – but the jar’s your savings account, earning you interest.
