Is it right for me?

For most of us, it's hard to predict when we'll need a little extra money to cover unexpected expenses. An ASB overdraft can help.

If you have a Tertiary or Graduate account you may be eligible for an interest-free overdraft, provided your income is coming into your account. You don't need to apply, if you qualify the overdraft will be available via FastNet Classic internet banking or the Mobile App.
