*The rate increase of 0.50% per annum will apply to the additional variable rate for eligible Savings Maximiser customers from 15 September 2022. The additional variable rate currently 2.55% p.a. (that is added to the Savings Maximiser standard variable rate currently 0.55% p.a applies on one nominated Savings Maximiser per customer for the next calendar month when you also hold an Orange Everyday account and in the current calendar month you do the following:
- deposit at least $1,000 from an external source to any personal ING account in your name (excluding Living Super, Personal Loans and Orange One);
- also make at least 5 card purchases that are settled (and not at a ‘pending status’) using your ING debit or credit card (excluding ATM withdrawals, balance enquiries, cash advances and EFTPOS cash out only transactions); and
- ensure that the balance of your nominated Savings Maximiser account at the end of the month (excluding interest) is higher than it was at the end of the previous month. When we assess whether you’ve met this balance growth requirement, we do not take into account any interest earned on your account in the month.
Each customer can nominate a maximum of one Savings Maximiser account (either single or joint) to receive the additional variable rate (where eligible). You can check and change your nominated Savings Maximiser account via online banking. If no nomination is made, the additional variable rate (where eligible) will be applied to an account nominated by ING at its sole discretion.
Any amounts above $100,000 are subject to the Savings Maximiser standard variable rate applicable at the time. If you do not satisfy the conditions to receive the additional variable rate, the standard variable rate applies. ING can change or withdraw the additional variable rate at any time. The additional variable rate is not payable in conjunction with any other promotional rate.
Information and interest rates are current as at the date of this publication and subject to change.
