Save the Change

Looking to grow your savings but not sure how? Save the Change takes the stress out of saving by tucking money away as you spend it. So each time you use your EFTPOS or ASB Visa Debit card, or make an electronic transaction from your nominated account(s), it automatically rounds up and sticks the extra into your savings. Too easy.

Benefits at a glance

  • Just set, forget and let your savings grow in the background while you focus on the fun stuff
  • Save a little or a lot - round up to the nearest $1, $2, $5 or $10
  • You're in control - turn Save the Change on or off at any time
  • Set-up is quick and easy, using the ASB Mobile app or FastNet Classic internet banking

How it works

1. Choose how much you'd like to save

You choose how much change you'd like to save, rounded up to the nearest $1, $2, $5 or $10. Then whenever you use your EFTPOS card and/or your ASB Visa Debit card, or make an electronic payment, the difference between the purchase price and the rounding amount will be deposited into a savings account of your choice.

2. Choose your accounts

You choose which everyday account you'd like your payments made from, as well as the savings account(s) you'd like your change deposited into. You can have up to 10 savings accounts and they can be in your name or someone else's.

3. Choose the type of electronic transaction

You also choose which payment type you'd like Save the Change linked to - either EFTPOS and/or ASB Visa Debit card payments on their own, or EFTPOS and/or ASB Visa Debit card as well as other payment types such as direct debits and automatic payments (Save the Change is not available with credit card or online transactions).

4. You're in control

You have full control of Save the Change through the ASB Mobile app or FastNet Classic internet banking.Turn Save the Change on or off, change your rounding amounts, update your payment type, and change the accounts linked to Save the Change any time.

 

1.

Each time you use your EFTPOS or ASB Visa Debit card, or make an electronic transaction from your nominated account(s), it automatically rounds up the difference (your change).

So if you purchase a new t-shirt for $32.50...

And your Save the Change is $2...

4.

ASB will then transfer $1.50 into your specified ASB savings account.
