Of course. You can have deposits made directly into any Greater Bank savings account. You can do this in a number of ways:

  • You can have real-time payments made directly into your account using Osko ® by BPAY. You can also assign a PayID ™ to your savings account to make the process even easier.
  • You can also have deposits made directly into your account using your BSB and account number. (Greater Bank’s BSB number is 637 000)

It is important to note that a deposit can only be made on the maturity date or within the next 10 days for any Term Deposit accounts. Any payments made to a Term Deposit outside this time will be rejected.

While the amount that you choose to save is up to you, a good guide is to get to know how your chosen account works, and plan your savings activity around making sure you meet the periodical account requirements in order to earn interest. For example, our Bonus Saver rewards you with interest when you make at least one deposit and no withdrawals in a calendar month.

Another good way to know how much you need to save is to work towards a savings goal. If you’re saving for something big, you’re more likely to be motivated to stick to a savings plan. Luckily, you’re able to plot and track your savings goal using our handy Savings Goal Calculator – get started now!

And if you simply want to know how much money out of your pay packet you’ll have leftover for saving, you’re able to track this using our Budget Calculator – try it now to see where you stand.

Depending on the type of savings account you’ve opened, the way in which you’ll be able to transfer funds out of your account may differ.

  • If you have opened a Term Deposit, you will have 10 days from the date of maturity to add or remove funds. After this time, the term will reinvest. If you need to take money out or close the term outside this 10 day period, the interest we pay will be significantly reduced. You will need to contact us to arrange this.
  • If you’ve opened a Bonus Saver Account, you’ll need to transfer funds out to a linked everyday account before you can then transfer it elsewhere.
  • If you’ve opened a Life Saver or Cash Management Account, you are able to freely transfer funds out of your account at any time.

Just be aware that by transferring funds out of your savings account, you may be at risk of failure to meet the account conditions in order to earn interest in a given month.
