Mozo snapshot

UBank have created something a little bit special in the USpend Transaction Account: a smart account that actively works to help you save with the unique 'Sweep' function. The account doesn't come with a monthly fee attached and it could make a cost-friendly companion for international travellers. 

In fact, Mozo's judges thought the USpend stood out enough that they named it a 2021 Mozo Experts Choice Award winner in the Exceptional Everyday Account category.

Key features

Coupled with an existing high interest regular USave account, the UBank USpend is a revolutionary new transaction account that takes the hard work out of saving. Customers set a maximum balance for their USpend account between $500 and $2500, and every night, the automated Sweep function will rollover funds from the normal USaver to the USpend to keep that balance on target. Similarly, if the balance in the USpend exceeds the selected maximum amount, Sweep will transfer the excess back into the USaver to help you keep saving. Finally, if the USpend balance falls below $500, Sweep will automatically top it up with funds from the USaver, so you're never caught short. 

Although the standard interest rate of the USave is 0.10%, any USpend customer who deposits $200 in one month will earn a bonus 1.00% interest. That takes the total interest on the accounts to 1.10% - a pretty good deal by anyone's standards.

The UBank USpend also scores well on accessibility, as it also comes with a UBank Visa Debit Card for ATM access in Australia and overseas. Speaking of which, UBank won't charge customers any international ATM withdrawal fees (though the ATM provider might) and neither does it charge any foreign exchange commission for purchases.

Any catches

Be sure to deposit the $200 minimum into your USpend each month, otherwise you will only earn 0.10% interest on your USave savings account balance.
