Welcome to RateCity's Savings Account section.
If you’re planning to save for a holiday, car or even a deposit for your first home our easy-to-use Savings Calculator will help you to work out how much you need to put away to reach your goals.
Use our savings calculator to calculate the interest earned on your deposits, the time it takes to reach your target as well as the amount of tax you’ll have to pay on your interest earnings.
Here are some points to consider to set up a practical savings goal:
Additional deposits – If you have a regular income having this automatically deposited into your savings account can help to grow your interest. Most accounts have this as a standard feature and there are generally no additional fees involved.
Savings frequency – If you’re struggling to save, making small regular deposits into your account can be a great way to start. Our savings account calculator allows you to choose the frequency of your deposit (weekly, fortnightly or monthly) as well as the deposit amount. Start with monthly investments or see how you can increase the frequency of your deposits to earn extra interest.

Online Savings Accounts
When you are deciding between the vast varieties of online savings accounts available, you need to be aware of the different types and restrictions that come with them. Online savings accounts don’t suit everyone because they are designed to help you save by depositing money over a period of time. If you have a lump sum of money – such as an inheritance or a bonus – you may be better off with a different investment option such as a term deposit account. But if you are looking for a savings account that will encourage you to build up your savings for a particular goal then an online savings account with a high interest rate might be your best shot. This is because many online savings accounts come with certain rules that you need to follow in order to receive the high interest rate. These include things like you must deposit a certain amount of money each month, set up an automatic savings plan where money is deposited automatically from your linked transaction account, or you have a limited amount and number of withdrawals available per month.
