  • I’m with NAB and no fees, ING as well, no fees and rebates for ATM withdrawal fees. If you are on centrelink tell them and they won’t charge the monthly fee.

  • Im with CUA i dont see any fees on my statements.

  • Most banks and building societies offer fee free accounts but I’m not sure if they would have all the services you need.

  • I’ve been with the commonwealth bank over 10 years very satisfied with them.

  • I bank with Bank Australia and Bank Victoria and do not get charged anything. I wouldn’t stay with a bank that charged monthly fees.

  • 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.
