Savings Accounts & Deposit Accounts |


For many of us, a savings account is the last thing we think about beyond just covering our monthly expenses and covering debt repayments. The fact is though, that putting just a little money away each month in a savings account can be an excellent way of working towards that big purchase - whether it's a holiday overseas, a new gadget, or sending your child to university.


In addition to helping you put money away for that big ticket item, putting your money in a savings account is a safe way to keep your money, and you can easily access it whenever you want. So which savings accounts or deposit accounts should you choose? After all, there are so many investment accounts on the market, that the choice of which to get can be confusing.
