Have a Bank Australia Credit Card?

Link your Round UP to your eligible Credit Card and chip away at lowering your balance. 

How it works

Any eligible purchase with your Bank Australia Visa debit card is rounded up to the nearest dollar amount via a separate debit transaction. 

The extra amount is then transferred to your norminated Savings account. Same goes for your Bank Australia Credit Card, but instead of an increase in savings, you'll see a decrease on your credit card bill. 

 

A Round UP will work when

   You use your Visa debit card connected to your Bank Australia transaction account. This includes in-store transactions, payWave and Digital Wallet. 

  You make an online purchase with your Visa debit card details. 

A Round UP will not occur on BPAY, transfers between accounts, ATM withdrawals, if your account is in overdraft or if the Round UP would cause your account to go into overdraft.
