Lowest I got having just refixed with ASB was 4.95% 12 months (4.99 for 6mnth or 2 yrs).  Not really any less than their advertised rates, should've switched banks for the $5k bonus!

ANZ


Really? That's interesting because I know several people who are switching from ANZ to Kiwibank for the same kind of deal, which ANZ won't match.

It all depends on who you talk to and whether they are prepared to push past their limits and seek approval for a lower rate/better deal. 

They don't like to make waves, generally speaking, unless they are getting good business.

Sorry, i meant ASB....we just left ANZ after 5+ years ....the amount of break fees we've paid in 4 years to them is sickening.

Kiwibank, i cant do business with them,its too frustrating!

sovereign(asb) and sbs are normally good tho!

I got 4.99% fixed for 2 years with ASB and i was already locked into a 3 year fixed rate of 5.65% with 2 and 1/2 years to go.

no break fee or anything, they just swapped me over.

Very happy with ASB.

Absolutely - and it's the reason that they still exist...they can take a lot of the frustration out of getting your mortgage fixed at the right rate, by the right provider.

Ditto. Also, contemplating switching a couple of 5.95% tranches for very reasonable ERA fees.

Rates can't drop much below 4.99%, can they?

I guess I should be pushing for 4.89% but I don't think the bank will feel that my business is worth buying. Worth giving it a go though.
