      Meanwhile, Up Bank has also slashed the maximum interest rate on its savings account by 25 basis points from 2.50% p.a. to 2.25% p.a. effective immediately for new and existing customers.

      As of today, the base rate is 0.50% p.a. and the bonus rate is 1.75% p.a.

      To activate the bonus rate, customers simply have to make five or more card purchases each month from their Everyday Account. No monthly deposits are required to activate the rate, however the bonus rate is only effective on balances under $50,000.

      Bank of Queensland have also joined the rate-cutting party, slashing the maximum interest rate on its Fast Track Saver account by 35 basis points from 2.50% p.a. to 2.15% p.a. effective immediately for new and existing customers.

      With another Reserve Bank interest rate cut expected, these are likely not the last cuts to interest rates on savings accounts we’ll see.
