It’s best to leave it with ME.
 
Australians trying to get on top of their finances have a new #1 when it comes to stashing their cash.
 
ME has won Money magazine’s prestigious 2018 Money Minder of the Year award, which recognises high-value accounts: transaction, savings and term deposits on the market. Judged by the experts at Canstar, ME outranked more than 200 other Australian financial institutions to secure the prize.
 
This is a huge win for ME, who secured the title by providing attractive long-term rates and hefty savings bonuses.
 
Australian savers have suffered a long run of low interest rates, with Reserve Bank’s cash rate sitting at 1.5% since August, so the win is also an affirmation that you can still get ahead by picking the right place to put your money.
 
Acknowledged for its transparency, zero account-keeping fees and refunds on all ATM costs, ME’s Everyday Transaction Account ensures that your money is just that – yours.
 
Money magazine also recognised ME’s powerful savings incentives for linking an Online Savings Account alongside your Everyday Transaction Account. Simply make a weekly Tap & Go™ payment and you’ll receive a hefty bonus rate on anything in your savings account.
 
With bonuses on tap, extra savings are easier than ever.
 
And for those with their eyes on an even larger savings prize, ME’s Term Deposits also got the tick of approval from Canstar. If you invest anywhere between $1000 and $2 million into a ME term deposit account and you’ll receive locked-in interest rates, as well as payouts if and when you want them.

While ME’s shining their new trophy, you could be polishing your fast-tracked savings. It takes just five minutes to apply online.
 

The legal stuff.

Money magazine, Money Minder of the Year is awarded to the provider most likely to have an account that delivers value for money and includes personal transaction accounts, children’s accounts, regular saver accounts, online saving accounts and term deposits.
 
To receive bonus interest on your OSA for any calendar month you must have a ME Everyday Transaction Account (ETA) and during that month make a weekly purchase with your ETA Debit MasterCardTM using tap & go. Bonus interest is only payable on balances up to $250,000 on the first OSA you open. You’re automatically eligible for bonus interest on your first OSA unless it was opened before 10/08/15, in which case you’re only eligible upon request. If you don’t meet all of these bonus interest conditions you’ll receive variable base rate interest only, however in any month we may without notice waive the requirement for you to meet all of these conditions. We may change or withdraw the bonus interest offer at any time.
