Ready Saver gives you full access to your money and the ability to earn interest. You can make deposits and withdrawals from your account any way you want, and you’ll earn a higher rate of interest as your savings grow.

To get the most from your Ready Saver:

  • keep your average daily balance for the month above $500, and you won’t pay the monthly account fee.
  • if you have $5,000 in your account, you’ll earn a higher rate of interest.

Accessing your money

Ready Saver makes it really easy to access your money. You can withdraw your money in any way you please, including branches and our Contact Centre, as well as ANZ Internet Banking, goMoney and Phone Banking.

You can even access your money using Visa Debit, Eftpos and ATMs – in fact the only thing you can’t have is a cheque book.

Online statements

You’ll receive your Ready Saver statement online through Internet Banking, where you can view and print up to seven years of statements.

Be realistic

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.

Pay yourself

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).

Remove temptation

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.
