Benefits at a glance

  • Keep your bank in your pocket. The ASB Mobile app lets you take a sneak peek at your balance before you buy, or pay people on the go.
  • Get free fries daily when you hit McDonald's® on your ASB Visa Debit card.
  • Help when you need it with a Visa Light credit card, special rate personal loan or, while you're studying, an interest-free overdraft between $500-$2,500.
  • Pay no monthly base fee or transaction fees for your day-to-day banking.

Is it right for me?


If you're studying at an NZQA Tertiary institution (for at least one semester) you're in for an ASB Tertiary account. You keep your ASB Tertiary package and its benefits until you graduate or leave.


If you're learning a trade at an institution like BCITO we'd love to hear from you. Your ASB Tertiary package and its benefits will apply until your apprenticeship is done.


We've got you covered when you graduate. Move to our Graduate account so you can hit the ground running. We'll change your account over for you when the time comes. The Graduate account has different rates and fees.

ASB's terms, eligibility and lending criteria apply. At the expiry of your Tertiary account, you will move to a standard account with a standard overdraft. This means our standard rates and fees will apply. To apply for credit you must be 18 years or older, a New Zealand resident or citizen and for your overdraft, your income must be credited to the ASB Tertiary account. Rates and fees may change and other fees apply, including a monthly overdraft facility fee of 0.12% of the limit and highest daily overdraft balance, whichever is greater (minimum charge $2). Please refer to our fees page. For ASB Visa Light, rates, fees and more details on the Smart Rate purchase feature see asb.co.nz/light. Free small fries when you use your Tertiary Visa Debit card to buy something at McDonalds. Limit of one free small fries per person per day. Excludes McDeliveries®. Available after 10:30am. Offer subject to change.
