What savings accounts does Xinja offer?
Xinja offers one savings account called the “Stash” account. This account pays interest with “no strings”, Xinja says. For example, it says there is no introductory period and no minimum deposits or minimum number of payments required to receive a certain interest rate.
Stash accounts also come with their own BSB and account number. This means you can transfer money directly into your Stash account.
While Xinja is temporarily not offering this product to new customers, you can compare and view the current interest rates of a selection of other savings account providers in Canstar’s comparison tables.
Do Xinja savings accounts require a linked transaction account?
Yes, Xinja says you need a Xinja bank account to open a Stash account. To apply for a Xinja bank account you must be an individual, be 14 years old or over, be a tax resident of Australia, have an email address and Australian mobile phone number and have an Australian residential address.
