Not sure which savings account is best for you? It’s a good idea to consider your financial situation, work out your objectives and goals and think about how you do your banking. Or call us and talk it through before you decide.
Remember that you’ll need to consider more than interest rates. If you’re saving regularly, an account that pays bonus interest for no withdrawals might suit you. But if you want to move your money in and out whenever you want, then one of our easy access options would probably be better.
Then there are special purpose accounts – Little Copper Club for our members who are under 18, Christmas Club for those holiday expenses, and our Retirement Savings Accounts (RSA) which offer absolute security for members savings for their retirement.
