Bonus variable interest rate

How to earn up to 2.35% p.a. variable rate on your USave if you have a linked USpend account

Bonus variable interest rate
  • Your existing USpend transaction account must be linked with your existing USave savings account*.

  • Deposit at least $200 per month

    Deposit at least $200 each month into your USpend or its linked USave from a non-ubank account (for example your salary).

  • Bonus variable interest rate applied to a combined USave balance of up to $250,000

    The bonus variable interest rate will be applied to a combined balance of up to $250,000 held in your USave savings accounts, including joint accounts. Any remaining balance greater than $250,000 will earn the USave base variable rate.

Please note:

*You’ll need to be an existing customer and have a USave account linked to a USpend account to be able to earn the bonus variable interest. USave and USpend accounts are no longer available for new customers. If you have a USave but not a USpend, you will not be eligible to earn the bonus variable interest. The bonus variable interest rate of 2.25% p.a. will be applied to eligible balances held in each of your USave savings accounts (and not your USpend transaction account). If you meet the bonus interest criteria in the current calendar month, you’ll earn bonus variable interest on eligible amounts in your USave accounts for that month. The interest will be paid in two credits into your accounts:

  1. The first is interest calculated using the base variable rate
  2. The second is interest calculated using the bonus variable rate

You’ll have to keep meeting the criteria each month to remain eligible for bonus variable interest in that month.
