Competitive interest and easy access to your money make an ANZ Online account the perfect place for your savings.
Online is ideal if you want to:
- earn competitive interest of 3.00% p.a.
- access your money whenever you need it, without affecting the interest rate you earn
- manage your account electronically through ANZ Internet Banking, goMoney and Phone Banking.
You'll earn the same rate of interest no matter how much you have saved in your account.
Interest is calculated daily and paid on the last business day of each month. Interest for non-business days is calculated based on the balance as at the previous business day.
Monthly account fee
Automated and manual deposit fee
Automated withdrawal fee

Automated transactions include direct debits and direct credits, and all electronic transactions made through ANZ Internet Banking, goMoney and Phone Banking.
Manual transactions include transactions handled by our staff at a branch or by phone. Cheque books not permitted on the ANZ Online account.
Non-standard fees may apply.
With an Online account there’s no minimum balance and no restrictions on the number of withdrawals you can make. You'll earn the full interest rate no matter how you bank.
There’s no monthly account fees and no fees for electronic transactions. There is a $3 fee for manual withdrawals (e.g. at a branch).
Accessing your money
You can transfer money from your Online account to your other ANZ transaction or savings accounts. You can also make payments to other New Zealand bank accounts (for example a bill payment or one-off payment), as well as tax payments.
Making these payments electronically is really easy using ANZ Internet Banking, our goMoney app for iPhone and Android, or Phone Banking, and it also means you won’t pay transaction fees. But you can also access your money through our Contact Centre and branches when you need to, including withdrawing cash.
An Online account is designed for saving, so you won’t be able to make cheque, Eftpos and ATM withdrawals, automatic payments, and direct debits from your account. However, if you need to make these transactions, we have a great range of everyday banking accounts that you can choose from.
You’ll receive your Online account statement each month through Internet Banking, where you can view and print up to seven years of statements.

Setting a savings goal is important, but make sure it’s within your budget. If you’re a bit too ambitious, you may find yourself dipping into your savings which can mean your plan falls flat.
Instead of then saving whatever money you have leftover at the end of each week, pay yourself a savings amount after you’ve covered your bills and expenses. This could mean that you might not be able to buy that new pair of shoes, but you’ll be a little closer to that savings goal.
Making your savings automatic
An automatic payment is a regular transfer you can schedule to go from one account to another. An automatic payment to your savings account is a great way to keep on track as it means you can’t forget to save. You can set up your automatic payment for any amount, and to go out at any time (e.g. each time you are paid by your employer).
You can hide your savings accounts in Internet Banking which makes it much easier to resist the temptation to spend! To do so simply ask us to hide your accounts using Bankmail, at any branch or by calling our contact centre.
