The increase comes following the major bank lifting its ANZ Save account rate for ANZ Plus customers by 50 basis points post-RBA's August decision.

Previously, ANZ Save customers were eligible to receive a rate of 2.50% p.a. on balances up to $250,000.

Now sitting at 2.70% p.a, ANZ Save boasts one of the most competitive savings account offerings from a major bank based on Savings.com.au's market research. 

While this may not top the likes of Bank of Queensland's 3.50% p.a. 'Future Saver' account for millennial savers or ING's 3.10% p.a. 'Savings Maximiser' offering, ANZ Save requires no monthly deposit, minimum transaction or age restrictions to be met to achieve the rate.

This 'unconditional' product is similar to Macquarie Bank's 2.25% p.a. transaction account

ANZ Save customers receive the 2.70% p.a. rate on balances up to $250,000, with balances over this amount receiving a sole rate of 0.05% p.a. 

ANZ states interest is calculated based on the effective daily balance of your ANZ Save account, paid monthly.

It's important to note ANZ Plus is a digital product offered through both iOS and Android applications which differs to traditional ANZ saving account offerings. 

For ANZ Plus customers, in-app features include:

  • BPAY - Pay bills using BPAY.
  • PayID - ANZ Plus customers can send payments to a PayID such as a mobile number, email address or ABN.
  • Add digital card to Apple Wallet immediately - Customers can instantly set up digital card when joining ANZ Plus. 
  • Dynamic CVV - Provides a digital alternative to the static three-digit number on the back of the ANZ Plus card.
  • Query a transaction - ANZ Plus customers can dispute all available transaction types via the self-service option.
  • Age to join reduced to 15 years - ANZ Plus customers can begin learning how to manage their money and save earlier.
  • Card-less cash - ANZ Plus customers can securely withdraw cash from an ATM without their card.
