An APS Savings account will help you save more – let’s show you how!
Brian and Sue opened an APS savings account
By looking beyond what major banks are offering, you are likely to find high-interest accounts that provide very similar products but with a significantly higher interest rate. APS Savings customers Brian and Sue opened a 31 Day NOW (notice of withdrawal) account when their grandchild was born. They kickstarted the account with a deposit of $200. For every special occasion such as birthdays and Christmas, they contributed $50. By the time their grandchild was 5 years old, they had accumulated over $1,000 in the account with a healthy 3.50% p.a. interest rate.
How they tripled their savings?
Brian and Sue were eager to continue to grow their savings even further. They decided to transfer this $1,000 to an APS Term Investment for 12 months at 4.00% p.a. When they renewed that investment, they took advantage of the 0.25% p.a. bonus interest rate which is offered on all APS Savings re-investments, meaning that their total interest rate was 4.25% p.a. – that’s three times what most major banks were willing to offer.
