  • LOL reserve bank 😛

    I vote for Peoples Choice Credit Union
    I’ve considered moving away to one of the big 4 a few times, but this small organisation just keeps on giving – they are very competitive and the terms of their high interest savings account (3.61% so long as you deposit at least $50 a month and no withdrawing) is a lot better than most of the banks, even though some offer the same interest, you have to deposit a lot more a month to get the bonus. Their unlimited EFTPOS + unliimited rediteller ATM plan is $6 a month, and you can get that waived (I’m going to look into that)

    Great little financial institution that.

  • ING Direct. 0 fees, 2% or 5% rebate for PayWave purchases under $100, free ATM withdrawals at ANY ATM, good mobile apps (including windows phone), good online banking functionality, super customer service.

    Also Savings Maximiser with 4% interest if you deposit a certain amount.

    • +1 for ING – ive literally made about $200-300 since being with ING with the paywave rebate and being able to use any ATM for free is awesome.

  • Definitely Commbank for their revamped iOS app released earlier this year. Worst bank goes to ANZ for their horrible customer service.

  • Best bank has to be Suncorp for their customer service where I get to speak to someone who understands English and tries to help me as best they can when I ring up

    Worse bank has to be ANZ, for their indifferent customer service, expensive products and rubbish long wait times on the phone. Thank god I’ve left them.

  • 1, CBA – Cardless Cash, good apps, saved our butts on a mortgage when one of the online lenders proved to be dunderheaded about ACT land law.

    2, Bendigo Bank – They sponsor the Geelong VFL team, and assisted Geelong during tough times.

    3, ING – Good suite of products. Paywave rebate.
