Want more real mum questions sent to you?


Ask your question

  • There are so many choices. Theres a few ive never heard off either.



  • I’m with a building society and the fees are very reasonable.



  • I too am with The Commonwealth. I have heard lots of good things about the Bendigo Bank. Haven’t really looked into it for myself tho



  • I’d be questioning the monthly fee you’re being charged. It can variate based on what type of account you have. Some banks charge until you get a certain amount deposited per month.



  • You shouldn’t have to pay a monthly fee – I’d question it. As the other mum’s have said – try a comparison site, banks are very competitive nowadays!



  • I have a credit card which i dont pay a yearly fee for because i have banked with them since i was a little girl. I will have a look at a comparison website now. Thanks ladies i didn’t even think about that.



  • I’m with NAB and I cant seem to find any charges on my statements and I was with a credit union before and was disgusted with the monthly fee charges for no apparent reason . Also using a comparison site may help you too.



  • You should definitely compare banks. Having to pay 4 dollars a month just to keep an account, seems quite a lot to me.

  • Online tools such as bank comparisons for fees and online calculators may help?



  • I have always negotiated with banks regarding fees.



  • Its a monthly fee to have an account



  • What are you charged $4 per month for?
    I’ve been with Citibank for the last 10 years and I don’t pay any account fee.
