flexiRates: higher interest rates on Savings

flexiRates are like a flexible online term deposit you can manage yourself. They allow you to set aside a portion of your savings in eligible accounts for a nominated period, have it earn a little extra interest, and help you reach your savings goals quicker.

Why choose flexiRates

No minimum balance required

You can set up flexiRates for specified amounts from $1 to $1 million dollars inclusive

Interest adjustment

Your interest will however be adjusted if you request to release your flexiRate early. This simply reduces the amount of interest you’ll receive and doesn’t impact the amount that you originally put in.

Early release option

No admin fee is charged if you need to withdraw all of the funds before the end of your nominated period. An interest adjustment will apply

Choose a period that suits you

You can apply flexiRates with terms from 1 to 12 months, depending on your budgeting and savings needs

Freedom to set up and manage yourself

You can setup a flexiRate in under a minute on eligible accounts and view your balances at any time in the Suncorp App, Internet Banking or Mobile Banking.

Reduce the temptation to spend

Lock away a portion of your money to save for something special

How do flexiRates work?

If you have more money in savings than you’ll need for your short-term expenses, you can lock a portion of it away at a higher fixed interest rate than the unlocked portion. 

Example of flexirates for $10000 account balance

For example, if you’ve got $10,000 saved but only need $2,000 in the near future, you can apply a 6-month flexiRate (with no additional account keeping or transaction fees!) to the unused $8,000 and earn more interest on that balance than you do on the $2,000. Simple!
