Tips: Saving for a goal
Whether it’s the motivation to start or incentive to keep going, think of the end goal. The tropical island getaway, the beautiful new car smell or the feeling of walking down the aisle. Always keep in mind how good it will feel to reach your goal.
Doing it the smart way is better than the hard way. Saving for a goal doesn’t mean you have to cut costs everywhere. With a clear plan and the right savings account, you can save your existing lifestyle and save for your goal.
Saving advice from CommBank customers
Here are the top tips that CommBank customers told us they use to reach their savings goals.
1. Learn the difference between what you need and what you want. Put a jumper on instead of the heater.
2. Collect your change. It all adds up very quickly. But bank it and don’t leave it lying around where you can pick at it.
3. Have a master plan and stick to it. Have a saving mind-set and always debate each purchase you make.
4. Each time you get a pay rise or a little extra cash add this to your savings. This way you are putting more in your savings without noticing a difference to the amount you are living on.

Things to know before you Can:
*To be eligible for bonus interest, the closing balance of the GoalSaver account on the last day of the calendar month (or day prior to the day the account is closed) must be at least $200 higher (excluding interest earned on the account) than the opening balance on the first day of the same month, with no more than 1 withdrawal in the same period. The standard variable rate of 0.01% p.a. will apply on any portion of the balance over $100,000. These rates are current as at 19 August 2016 but are subject to change at the Bank's discretion. A maximum of two (2) GoalSaver accounts per customer can be opened.
