Savings Plus could be a great option if you have a longer-term savings goal.
With Savings Plus, the fewer withdrawals you make, the better off you are. Your savings earn a base rate of interest and then you have the opportunity to earn reward interest on top. So as long as you don’t make a withdrawal during a calendar quarter (e.g. from 1 January to 31 March), you earn full reward interest. Make one withdrawal and you’ll earn a partial reward interest, or make more than one withdrawal and you’ll earn base interest. A withdrawal at anytime during the calendar quarter (including the first day and last day) will impact your reward interest, so if you know you'll be dipping into your savings think about choosing another ASB savings account.
You can earn full or partial reward interest rates on amounts up to $2 million.
Base interest and any reward interest (after tax) can be automatically transferred to another ASB bank account immediately after it's paid to your Savings Plus account. The transfer of interest will not be counted as a withdrawal for reward interest purposes.
