Let tax time fund your fun

While we all usually let out a collective groan when we think about tax time, there’s a bright side to filing your tax… scoring a great return.

For those of us fortunate enough to get some money back, there’s a heap of options for how you choose to spend (or save) it.

Treat yourself and some friends to a night out

Hit the town with your shiny tax refund. Whether you’re with family, friends, or someone special, there’s always a reason to celebrate – and we’re pretty sure a new financial year is a great reason.

Ready, jet set, go!

The world is finally opening up again so why not turn that refund into reservations in Bali, Japan ski season, or a Euro trip?

Swap your sweatpants for swimmers and get going!

Little life upgrades

Is it time for a new phone, laptop, or wardrobe? You could use your tax return to treat yourself to the thing you didn’t really need, but absolutely wanted.

If you’ve got the cash to splash, why not get the upgrade you deserve?

Bigger life goals

Some things in life need more than a tax time boost… like saving for a house, or making a cross-country move, or paying off a car.

If saving is your goal, our Savings Maximiser account is designed for people just like you. Put that hard-earned return in the bank, and save it for more than a rainy day. Check it out now.

Information and interest rates are current as at the date of publication and are subject to change.

 

The additional variable rate (that is added to the Savings Maximiser standard variable rate) applies on one nominated Savings Maximiser per customer for the next calendar month when you also hold an Orange Everyday account and in the current calendar month you do the following:

  • deposit at least $1,000 from an external source to any personal ING account in your name (excluding Living Super, Personal Loans and Orange One),
  • also make at least 5 card purchases that are settled (and not at a ‘pending status’) using your ING debit or credit card (excluding ATM withdrawals, balance enquiries, cash advances and EFTPOS cash out only transactions), and
  • ensure that the balance of your nominated Savings Maximiser account at the end of the current month is higher than it was at the end of the previous month. When we assess whether you’ve met this balance growth requirement, interest earned in the current month is not taken into account.

 

Each customer can nominate a maximum of one Savings Maximiser account (either single or joint) to receive the additional variable rate (where eligible). You can check and change your nominated Savings Maximiser account via online banking or the ING mobile app. If no nomination is made, the additional variable rate (where eligible) will be applied to an account nominated by ING at its sole discretion.

 

Any amounts above $100,000 are subject to the Savings Maximiser standard variable rate applicable at the time. If you do not satisfy the conditions to receive the additional variable rate, the standard variable rate applies. ING can change or withdraw the additional variable rate at any time. The additional variable rate is not payable in conjunction with any other promotional rate.
