Bank Australia open to serve our customers: As an essential service under the shutdowns announced Sunday evening by the Victorian and New South Wales governments, our branches and contact centres will remain open to serve our customers with their banking needs over the coming days and weeks. You can still get in touch with us by phone on 132 888 from 8am to 8pm, Monday to Friday. It may take us longer to answer your call as more customers choose to call rather than come into a branch so thanks in advance for your patience and please take care of yourselves. View details

If particular purchases are really important, you should set them as savings goals. Having savings goals means you commit to regularly setting aside money (say, weekly or monthly) and not touching it until you've reached your goal. Usually it means starting with a budget covering all of your expenses plus some for savings, and then sticking to the budget so your savings grow.

Open a savings account and make regular deposits. A Bonus Saver rewards you for making deposits and not withdrawing them during the month.
