Transaction accounts

Transaction accounts (also called ‘everyday’ accounts) give you easy access to your money for those everyday things you need – like food, transport, and going out. They’re also usually where your wages get paid into.

Everyday Account Smart Access

Everyday Account Smart Access is our transaction/everyday account for your day-to-day banking.

With our Everyday Account Smart Access, you’ll get:

  • The ability to bank anywhere, anytime with the CommBank app and NetBank – Australia’s #1 online bank
  • $0 monthly account fees while you’re under 25
  • The option to get a Debit Mastercard® to pay for things with your own money – online, over the phone, in-store and overseas

If you’re 14 or over and have an Australian residential address, you can open an Everyday Account Smart Access for yourself online.

If you’re under 14, your parent/legal guardian can check out our Kids page for more details.

Savings accounts

Savings accounts help you put money aside - and usually offer better interest rates than transaction accounts - so you can save up for the things you want. 

You have a couple of options if you want to open a savings account with us:

NetBank Saver

With a NetBank Saver, you'll get:

  • A flexible way to save and earn interest
  • An account with no minimum deposit
  • An online savings account linked to your Everyday Account Smart Access, so you can easily move money from your everyday account to your savings account
  • To create savings goals in the CommBank app, so you can track your progress

If you’re 14 or over, you can open a NetBank Saver account with us online.

If you don’t already have an Everyday Account Smart Access or aren’t registered for NetBank, we’ll automatically get these sorted for you if you’re eligible to open a NetBank Saver online.

If you’re under 14, you won’t be able to open a NetBank Saver account, but your parent/legal guardian can check out our Kids page for other options.

Youthsaver

With a Youthsaver, you'll get:

  • Zero monthly account fees
  • A bonus interest rate when you grow your balance each calendar month

If you're 14 or over, you’ll need to visit your nearest branch with your birth certificate or passport to open a Youthsaver account.
