What Canstar had to say
On announcing our 2020 Innovation Excellence Awarded, the independent review and ratings company had this to say about SmartBudget
Canstar’s judges said the innovation stood out as being “special”, and were confident it would have a significant positive impact on customers and their lifestyles. They were also particularly impressed by the fact that customers are not charged interest when their SmartBudget account is overdrawn due to the payment of their bills.*

The fine print
All interest rates quoted are per annum and are calculated on a tiered basis. Interest on the credit balance of a SmartBudget account is calculated on the minimum monthly balance and paid monthly. Rates are subject to change without notice.
^ Subscriptions can only be included in a SmartBudget agreement if the third-party subscription service provider allows payments via BSB and Account number.
*If the balance in your account is going to be negative in the first eight weeks (i.e. the dollar value of the bills that are due in the first 8 weeks plus the monthly service fee is more than your regular deposits) we will ask you to top-up the difference into your account. Your SmartBudget Account cannot have a debit balance of $5,000 at any time.
