Choices Everyday Floating

If you have a Westpac home loan, you could combine your daily transactions and home loan into one account. This way when your income is paid in, it immediately reduces your home loan balance. With a Choices Everyday Floating home loan account, you could pay less interest. 

It's for you if:

  • you are happy to have your home loan and transactions in one account
  • you want to save interest on your home loan
Overview

Key benefits

  • allows you to actively manage all your finances in one account
  • helps you save on interest charges
  • gives you flexibility to pay lump sums off your loan whenever you wish
  • you can mix and match your Choices Everyday Floating home loan with Choices Fixed, Capped and/or Floating rates to create a loan that's individual to you
  • lets you manage your home loan in your way – choose how much you repay and how

How it works

Choices Everyday is a revolving credit facility with your home loan and everyday banking in one account. When your salary is paid into your account it reduces what you owe on your loan – which means you pay less interest. If you then sign up for a Westpac credit card, you can put all your month’s purchases on the credit card and have the Choices Everyday account pay it off automatically up to 55 days later, interest free.

This leaves more money in your home loan account for longer, the loan balance is lower and less interest is charged. Plus Choices Everyday gives you the freedom to repay chunks of your loan or redraw additional funds up to your credit limit.

Your repayment options

Choices Everyday Flexible Option (non-reducing)

The non-reducing option gives you greater financial control over your home loan. You make repayments your way and can redraw up to your limit when it suits you. 

Choices Everyday Reducing Option

With the reducing option, your loan limit gets lower each month reducing the amount you can redraw. This means that your home loan will be paid off within the term you selected when you first signed up.
