How it works

It's all online

With an Online Saver account, you’ll manage your account the fast and convenient way – with online banking or phone banking.

As long as you have an existing Westpac transaction account* you can get an Online Saver account.

You can use Westpac ATMs to check your balance, transfers funds and make deposits. You can also use branch deposit boxes to make cash or cheque deposits.

How to withdraw money from your Online Saver account

To withdraw funds from your Online Saver you will need to transfer money into a Westpac transaction account first, and then withdraw the money from there. So, if you don’t already have a transaction account with us, take a look at our great options here.

Making deposits into your Online Saver account

You can:

  • transfer funds (to your Online Saver account from your nominated transaction account*) using online banking, phone banking, or at an ATM
  • set up a Sweep in to your Online Saver to automatically move money out of your account, and keep your transaction account at a certain level, so you always have enough to cover bills etc.
  • set up Salary Splitter which can automatically divide your income between a maximum of six different Westpac accounts including your Online Saver account
  • set up automatic payments
  • use a branch deposit box to make cash or cheque deposits
