It’s nice when you receive an unexpected windfall, like a tax return. And although you might be tempted to go out and splurge it, parking it in your Incentive Saver account can be a great way to accelerate your savings balance and reach those large savings goals sooner.
Setting up an automatic regular transfer is an easy way to keep your savings ticking over. Just head to Internet and Mobile Banking and follow the steps below. If you’d prefer the freedom to make manual deposits, then just follow the same process.
Logon to Internet Banking or open the St.George App, select ‘Transfer and Pay’ then choose the accounts you’d like to transfer from and into.
Enter the transfer amount and highlight the check box to set up a scheduled or recurring payment. Then choose the frequency, plus the start and end date, then hit continue.
Review your transfer, and if you’re happy, select ‘Submit payment’.
