1. Decide what sort of accounts you need

Some accounts are designed to help you manage the money you have for spending, and other accounts are better suited to help with saving. You can get both with this account bundle that includes a Westpac Choice bank account1 and a Westpac Bump savings account.

Getting paid

If you earn money from a part time job or even get an allowance from your parents, you could arrange to have it paid directly into a Westpac Choice bank account. This can keep your money safe but give you access to it when you need it.


 

Accessing your money

A good everyday bank account should also offer you easy ways of accessing your money when you need it. A Westpac Choice bank account also comes with a Debit Mastercard2 which you can use to get money out at ATMs3 and for shopping in stores or online. You can even use it overseas. 


 

Get a helping hand with saving

Getting into good savings habits when you’re young can help set you up with good money skills for life. A Westpac Bump Savings account can also give your savings a boost by paying you bonus interest4 when you grow your savings monthly. You can make it easy on yourself by putting your savings on autopilot with an automatic transfer from your everyday bank account to your savings account.


$0 Account-Keeping Fee

There’s no Account-Keeping Fee on either your Westpac Choice bank account or your Westpac Bump Savings account.

There may be other fees and charges that apply in some circumstances – Please refer to the Terms and Conditions (PDF 621KB)
