I think one of the banks, might be aussies Wetspac that offers 2.95% on a normal internet savings account. Ill have to recheck that.

I think its hard to give any kind of advice, and important to realise its not advise its just someones opinion. But, I think its important and great that young people ask what to with what seems like poultry to some, a large amount to them, because salaries havnt gone up by a lot in recent years (perhaps negatively vs inflation), just the paper estimate of real estate.



The best non-term rate with Westpac is their Bonus Saver, which gives 2.6% at the moment


Hourly earnings have been increasing by about 2% per year recently, vs 0.4% inflation.  Obviously if you get an increase due to better qualifications or experience, you can do better than that

Interest rates are low because the Reserve bank wants more money being spent in the economy and to cause this the banks need incentive to have them low.
