How to reduce your fees
Your everyday banking shouldn't cost a lot. There are so many ways to minimise your fees.
Choose an appropriate account
Save on banking fees by choosing the right account for you. For further assistance, visit any Bendigo Bank branch or telephone Customer Contact and Care on 1300 236 344.
Use fee free services
You can make withdrawals and deposits that are free of transaction fees. The free transactions are detailed in the Schedule of Fees, Charges and Transaction Account Rebates (personal customers) or Business Fees and Charges (business customers).
Debit Mastercard® - press Credit when using EFTPOS
You will pay no transaction fees on your purchase if you press the credit button when using EFTPOS.
Reduce the number of accounts you have
Do you really need all those accounts? Consolidate your accounts and stop paying extra fees. If you have a number of accounts, you may be incurring fees on each. You may want to consider consolidating your accounts.
Use Bendigo Bank ATMs
If you make a deposit or check your Bendigo Bank account balance at a Bendigo Bank ATM, it's free. Don't pay the fees charged by other banks' ATMs.
Reduce the number of withdrawals you make
If you select the cheque or savings button when you make an EFTPOS purchase, you can also withdraw cash - in one, simple transaction.
Learn more about account rebates
You may be eligible for transaction rebates. Learn more or refer to the Schedule of Fees, Charges and Transaction Account Rebates (personal customers) or Business Fees and Charges (business customers).
