Industry super fund-owned bank ME has taken out three gongs in Money magazine’s 2017 ‘Best of the Best’ Awards:
• Best Everyday Account – Bank
• Best Savings Account Regular Deposits – Bank
• Best Term Deposit Long Term – Bank
Since 2000, Money magazine has partnered with top research companies to pinpoint the best financial products in Australia, the results showcased in its annual ‘Best of the Best' Awards.
ME Head of Deposits and Transactional Banking, Nic Emery said ME’s success be attributed to attractive rates and two new features − refunding all ATM fees and introducing a special savings offer to EveryDay Transaction Account (ETA) customers.
“Both features are ongoing and set a new benchmark for what customers can expect from everyday bank accounts,” he said.
ME was one of the the first banks in Australia to offer ATM fee refunds without conditions, such as minimum monthly deposits.
“ATM fees are a major frustration for customers. If your blood pressure starts to rise whenever you choose the ‘I accept’ fee button on an ATM, it’s time to go fee-free banking,” said Emery.
ME also introduced a special savings offer in August 2015 for ETA customers who opened a ME Online Savings Account.
The offer still exists and has no end date. It requires no minimum balance or monthly deposits and customers can access cash at any time without penalty.
To be eligible for the savings rate, customers only need be active ETA users by making at least one PayPass™ transaction a week.
